The quest for survival isn’t just a mental and physical journey—it’s also a spiritual one. Survivorman Les Stroud will share his own path during his workshop, “A Spiritual Journey With Survivorman,” at Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, New York, July 3 – 5. Over three days filled with outdoor adventures, skill lessons, storytelling and music, the star of the hit TV series Survivorman (OLN Canada, The Science Channel U.S., Discovery Channel International) will help others find clarity, peace and spirituality through their relationship with the earth.
“I have come to understand that keeping a culture alive requires three main components of what I call the cultural triangle: language, land skills and spirituality,” says Stroud. “Of these, spirituality is always the most fragile and usually the first to disappear.”
If you’ve watched Survivorman or Beyond Survivorman then it will come as no surprise that Stroud is a highly spiritual individual. Alone in the wilderness, he is invigorated by any extreme or obstacle Mother Nature can throw at him. For Stroud, his relationship with the planet and its people doubles as his spirituality. By tuning in and being present in the wilderness, he derives answers from land, and seeks out healing in the soil.
During the Omega Institute workshop, Stroud will teach participants to use nature as their guide. They’ll discover how to get down to basics, practice wilderness awareness, learn tools to develop their sixth sense and calm the body when lost. These practical wilderness skills double as a metaphor for life and a way of staying connected to yourself and your planet.
The weekend adventure will include gentle outdoor adventures, storytelling, music, self reflection and land skills training. In addition, Stroud will share lessons he’s gathered in his extensive global travels.
