Explore The Wild

Nature, adventure, and wellbeing

What we're about

Based in Dorset, we help people connect and grow through joy, adventure, and shared experiences in natureOur values are made up of the following ingredients:

 

 

Connection

With self, nature and others. Spending time exploring nature and the outdoors brings a great sense of connection with other people and the natural environment, as well as a deeper connection with yourself. Modern life can sometimes leave us feeling disconnected and so all of our adventures allow you to connect in a deep way, with a greater awareness of life. We dare you to leave your mobile phone at home! 

 

Fun

Play is at the heart of everything we do here. Children, when left to their own devices will play very well. Even animals play. But adults sometimes lose the ability to let go and have fun. We find that time in the wild, away from the pressures of home and work, can allow your inner child to come out. When we are around the fire cooking up something tasty it’s easy to bring out the kid in you! When you are in touch with the inner child, that is when you experience the most presence, and the most joy. All of our adventures invite a relaxed and safe atmosphere.

 

Wellbeing 

Health and wellbeing is at the core of our programmes. Our lead instructor is a fully trained, qualified and accredited psychotherapist who is passionate about bringing out the best in people. We do what we do because we love it and we want you to find your own sense of passion, adventurefreedom and joy.

 

Mindfulness 

Bringing a sense of presence and awareness to all of our activities allows a deeper sense of freedom and joy. Mindfulness can help bring a greater sense of fulfilment to life as well as allowing you to find stillness in the midst of great difficulty. Live in the moment!

 

Growth 

Learning about nature also allows us to learn about ourselves. With all of our adventures you will not only learn new skills for living in the wild, you will also have the opportunity to explore your inner world. This can lead to tapping into your own strength, power, creativity, happiness and freedom, whilst immersed in nature. 

 

Adventure

Both an outer adventure with the wild, and an inner adventure learning about your own wild side! Our adventures can be both big or small, and we will show you that it doesn’t take a lot to have an adventure. You don’t need any fancy kit, just a few basic skills and a willingness to explore!

 

To sum up, our philosophy is to create a better and thriving world where people feel a sense of belonging with each other and in nature. We do this through a creative and varied set of adventures designed to bring connection, fulfilment, fun, inner strength and freedom
