Explore National Parks in the U. S.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
Here's a website I go to often when I'm looking for inspiration for my next Adventure Retreat; The U. S. National Park Service.

It's not even necessary to create an offering in a National Park (although these parks are so inspiring they can do much of your work for you). Just land on the page and go exploring. Something you see on this site will inspire a location and a theme. I promise.

And if you're interested in learning about the rules for offering an Adventure Retreat in a U. S. National Park, consider signing up for Deb and Patt's Live Teleclass Series to Leading Adventure Retreats in Nature and ask the question about National Parks when we discuss locations for your offerings. We are happy to elaborate.

See you in the Park!

Get Your Personal Adventure Retreat Needs Met

It's true. We are Adventure Retreat Leaders because we personally love being on adventure and in retreat. And we often assume we will get our fix by leading adventures and retreats.Yet, it's not the same.

Want to be an outstanding Adventure Retreat Leader? Then go on another leader's offering. Or go on your own private outing.

How often? It's up to you. But we suggest at least twice a year. Better yet, once each season is lovely.

And by the way, Patt and I offer a guide to your next Adventure Retreat called The Rest of Your Life. It's a good start to getting your Adventure Retreat needs met. Enjoy!

David Whyte Tours

Do you know David Whyte? He's one of my favorite poets and authors. You can learn more about David at his website, DavidWhyte.com

And in the spirit of Adventure, I want to tell you today about his walking tours.

David has two tours this year, one last July in the West of Ireland and one coming up the end of August in the Hills of Tuscany.

He's been doing these tours for awhile. If you can't make the last-minute trip this year, put David on your radar and prepare for next year. In preparation, here's one of my favorite books by David Whyte.
