Rocky Mountain Mindfulness for 30+

The last few months have been challenging. Social distancing, school closures, travel restrictions, lost jobs, and processing the news about COVID-19 has been taxing. Routines have been forced to change and this uncertainty has brought about feelings of fear and anxiety at a time when we have also been isolated. Being intentional and gentle is difficult at times. 


Canadian Rocky Mountains-  The course starts nestled in the magnificent Bow Valley where you will meet your group and prepare for the expedition ahead.  After being transported to a remote trailhead that accesses some of the most beautiful wilderness areas in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, you and your group will begin your wilderness journey. Navigating both on and off-trail, and camping in wilderness settings offers challenges and rewards in a backpacker’s paradise. The rugged peaks, beautiful lakes, rivers, and subalpine meadows that make up your surroundings allow you to be very present in the moment and connect, discover, and feel empowered.  

Backpacking- This Rocky Mountain course will teach the art of backpacking which includes wilderness travel, navigation, camp craft, minimal impact camping, and wilderness safety. To facilitate learning and growth, the course also includes the solo experience which gives participants time in a beautiful setting to regain focus, and to reflect without distractions.

Gain perspective from being in the wilderness. Contemplate what it means for you to navigate a pandemic while staying in alignment with your inner being.  Each day on this Outward Bound Mindfulness course will be an opportunity to visit new places both physically and mentally. As a group you will travel by foot, empowering each other to reach new heights and gain new perspectives. Watch a sunset, summit a peak, reflect as you gaze upon natural wonders.  Facilitated by skilled instructors, participants will learn wilderness backpacking skills but the focus will be on personal growth and mindfulness. 

The solo, a cornerstone element of the Outward Bound experiences, will provide an opportunity for reflection on the expedition, and on life. A chance to truly feel solitude, to look in, to seek clarity, and to find that which was hidden but has been there all along. 

Outward Bound Canada’s mission is to cultivate resilience, leadership, connections, and compassion through inspiring and challenging journeys in the natural world. This course will give you the tools you need to be mindful in your own life, empowering you to be the best version of yourself and take on any challenges that may cross your path.  Join us in the Rocky Mountains for an unforgettable experience, and to realign with your values.
