“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
— John Muir
Hiking is a practice that can engage every part of ourselves: physical, mental, spiritual. In a time in which we seek to encapsulate experience with a selfie, a Facebook update, an Instagram post or a check off the bucket list, how can we deepen our relationship with nature in a way that allows us to deepen our relationship with ourselves?
Hiking invites us to venture out into the wilderness — not just as it exists “out there,” in some national park, but perhaps equally as much to the deeper wilderness of our own internal selves.
