48h Nature Quest
Retreating alone into the wild Nature Quest and sharing your experience with other participants provides a powerful opportunity to step back and reflect on your life. It opens one up to a relationship with the natural world, which can enrich your own life as well as give you a deeper understanding of nature as a whole.
What: a unique opportunity for you to GetWild in a Nature Quest by being alone with yourself overnight in the Archipelago.
Why: To give your Self a ”gift” – a unique and transformative deep experience by reconnecting to nature.
Who: One that wants to calibrate one’s inner compass and re-connect to nature.
The Quest: Nature Quest is a guided wilderness experience built around a Solo time alone in nature. It’s a contemporary version of the ancient ritual of going into nature alone for contemplation, renewal, and realignment.
Retreating alone into the wild Nature Quest and sharing your experience with other participants provides a powerful opportunity to step back and reflect on your life. It opens one up to a relationship with the natural world, which can enrich your own life as well as give you a deeper understanding of nature as a whole. Spending time alone in nature is at the core of our genetic coding – when we are in solitude in nature, we enter a world of long-past experiences and become free and wild again.
Before and after the Solo you will engage in sharing processes with your co-participants such as campfire dialogues and awareness practices to deepen your experience. Some of the practices cultivate and refine the perceptions and senses while others involve body scanning, meditation as well as teach wilderness skills. Together, the practices and sufficient time will help you to prepare and integrate the experience in yourself and for when you re-enter your daily life.
Where: In our Nature Quest, we are visitors in a nature reserve. The Stockholm Archipelago offers a unique nature with well-preserved habitats, flora or fauna, which gives you the opportunity to immersive nature experiences. But it also means that you must be extra cautious when you visit there. The Archipelagos are shaped by forces of nature, including erosion and rising or falling sea tables; as dynamic landmasses, archipelagos tend to offer dramatic scenery and breathtaking views.
Pathfinder: Our pathfinder is Göran Gennvi, Sweden’s most experienced leader in nature quests. You will be introduced to the WiLD method; used to find balance and to establish a deeper understanding of the inner self and sense of interconnectedness with the natural world. Göran Gennvi has worked as a pathfinder, leadership consultant, and coach. He has offered Solos in nature for three decades with the main focus on unearthing the inner conditions for leaders and individuals to cultivate deep and lasting change, as well as connecting people with nature.

Departure & Arrival:
We will gather at Kajakeriet or Eksäret island on Thursday around lunch, and engage in order to prepare for the Solo. A Solo is, in this case, spending two whole nights alone on an island with your”Self”. Then, around noon on Sunday, we will come back together to integrate the experience of the Solo before you return back to the city. The quest will be held in either English or Swedish depending on the language of the participants.
