Inner Wild is dedicated to helping individuals of any age cultivate deeper relationships to self, Earth, community and the numinous (mystery, wonder, imagination), through exposure to and guidance from the natural world.


We serve both individuals and groups with a wide variety of programs, which range anywhere from half-day excursions to month-long adventures. Our core framework is based on principles found in liberatory and community psychology, rites of passage, social and environmental justice work, depth and ecopsychology, human and systems development, narrative activism, deep ecology, contemplative practices, leadership development, mentorship and nature connection.
