Montana based Non-profit offers Wilderness Meditation Expeditions in Wyoming

The Absaroka Institute,  a non-profit educational organization dedicated to supporting spiritual and ecological literacy, will offer two Wilderness Meditation Expeditions this year in the Absaroka (pronounced ‘absor-kee’) mountain range which runs through Wyoming and Montana.

The expeditions will be in August and September of this year and will move through Wyoming’s remote and wild Absaroka Range within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, truly one of the most beautiful and relatively remote and untouched places in the world.

According to the institute, the purpose of the expeditions will be to, ”explore the true meaning of freedom and wildness; access your authentic self; learn how to respond gracefully under stress.”

From the Institute:
For millennia, human beings have entered wild landscapes for pilgrimage and retreat. From Asia to the Americas, a common tradition of studying the self in relation to mountains, canyons and rivers has emerged as fundamentally transformative.
The Absaroka Institute offers wilderness meditation expeditions that explore wild nature and human potential. While traveling through beautiful and wild landscapes of the Rocky Mountain West, Absaroka Institute participants practice meditation and mindfulness techniques that support personal transformation.
