Program Description

Are you longing for adventure? What would it be like to completely unplug and thrive off the grid? This weekend, join Cliff Hodges, cohost of Remote Survival on the National Geographic Channel, for an experience of the art of survival in the wilderness.

As modern humans, we live in a world so insulated and removed from the natural environment that we often forget we are animals, just like any other. Research shows this widening disconnection from nature has negative physical, psychological, and emotional consequences. Living closer to the earth reverses this trend.

In this exciting, hands-on, experiential program, you will face challenges, build new skills, and learn how to:

  • Construct earthen shelters
  • Start fire by friction
  • Collect and use wild, edible plants
  • Slow down and experience your connection to the natural world.

In addition to rejuvenating time immersed in nature, you will participate in wilderness meditation and awareness exercises. Among the positive impacts you can expect are increased fitness and vitality, decreased stress levels, greater capacity for critical thought, and enhanced happiness.

Your time spent in the forests of the 1440 Multiversity, engaged in the art of survival, will send you home reenergized, reskilled, and reconnected to the natural environment.

Why Attend?

  • Satisfy your desire for adventure by doing something outside of your comfort zone.

  • Boost your confidence in facing challenges and relying on untapped aspects of yourself.

  • Discover new levels of physical and mental fitness.

  • Enjoy slowing down to experience the natural world and your own natural rhythms.
