The ceremony of Wilderness Fast has long been practiced in indigenous cultures to assist with major life transitions. It is a deeply transformative experience in which participants spend four days out of ten alone on the land with no food and a minimum of material comforts. The three stages of rite of passage are guided by experienced facilitators.
