Nature Quests

Nature Quests are multi-day retreats that incorporate anywhere from 1 to 5 days solitary ‘AllOne’ time. This allows for substantial exploration of Way of Nature principles and practices.

There are no prerequisites to attending a Nature Quest, making it open to all who wish to deepen their connection with nature.

Nature Quest: New Zealand

March 26 – April 2 2018, Sacred Earth Retreat Centre, New Zealand

Do you feel the call to drop into deep connection with all that is? Do you wish to:
– Reveal your True purpose for this lifetime.
– Open an authentic connection with Outer, Inner and True nature.
– Experience an authentic realisation of your True Nature, Source Awareness

This Way of Nature programme may be for you. Surrender and listen to inner and outer nature to learn how to take your place in the choir of life with a 4 day/night solo in a beautiful, safe natural environment, supported by personal preparation and group time either side of the solo.

The value of people being able to find ways to offer their unique gifts to world, and overcome the doubts and wounds that present as obstacles, cannot be measured. We would be in harmony with each other, with the planet, if this could be achieved. We truly honoured and grateful to offer this retreat process in service of this greater goal.

2 nights together, learning’s, meditation, qi gong and ceremonial practices, discussion exploring the nature of purpose from a worldview of interconnectedness and preparation for the AllOne time
4 nights AllOne time – in a personal campsite without interruption or distraction, just being with inner and outer nature, listening, offering, receiving, letting go, letting come.
Return from solo on the morning of the second last day to share with the group and prepare for reintegration.
We highly encourage everyone to honour the reintegration time and leave as much room as possible for self-care, love and inward reflection.

Exchange for the WoN teachings and support during your Solo, food during group time, use of the land and key WoN audio meditations.

Often people feel called to these programmes but believe their situation does not allow for it at this time, be it family commitments or financial challenges. We want these programs to be accessible to as many people as possible. The Way of Nature honours families and children and we endeavour to make it work for all. Please do get in touch to discuss how we can make this work for you.

To express interest and obtain more information:
Contact Claire or +61431980094 or Deborah Crowe with any enquiries or to request a registration pack.

All meals (mostly organic, all vegetarian) for the group time are included. Fasting is recommended for the solo time. If you wish to bring food on the solo it is the responsibility of the participant to provide food during this time. More details on fasting and preparation are sent upon registration.

All participants must camp onsite for the duration of the retreat. Participants must provide their own camping gear. A detailed packing list will be provided upon registration.

 If you choose to trust, the natural world will bring you profound peace, self-respect and revelation!

Some feedback from past participants:

Last year I had the pleasure of joining Claire Vanderplank on a quest. The insights continue to unfold, and my connection to nature/myself has deepened.  It was such a magical experience that I will forever treasure. Claire facilitates beautifully, holding space to a fine balance;  just enough to facilitate your own brave growth & deep immersion into the mystery ? Natalia
