What is a Nature Quest?
The WoN Nature Quest is a mindfulness and meditation retreat that includes powerful awareness training with a skilled and knowledgeable teacher, and a guided AllOne time solo in Nature. Shorter than a Sacred Passage, the Nature Quest creates an opportunity to receive teachings in a concise retreat that is more accessible to most people. Experiencing a Nature Quest can have a deeply transforming effect on your life. The fundamental purpose is to provide a simple and clear introduction to Natural Mindfulness. Utilizing the core principles of relaxation and presence, this practice helps refine the experiential fields of perception through a conscious, sensorial connection to your natural surroundings.
The Nature Quest in Lech, Austria will start on the morning of the 21st of June and will close at noon on 29th June. This Nature Quest takes you on a profound journey of self-development. It comprises of nine days of relaxation and reflection supported by contemplative practices from ancient traditions taught by John P. Milton. The Nature Quest includes teachings with a true master and a five day/ four night solo experience (All-One Time) in wild nature, where you will be immersed in a beautiful yet safe natural environment.

The revolution starts within.
Way of Nature Founder John P. Milton will guide you on this Nature Quest in the Austrian Alps. John created Way of Nature as a universal path to Liberation, incorporating 12 Guiding Principles which distill the core teachings of the world’s liberating wisdom traditions. His work has been visualized as a red-thread through the book "Presence" (authors: Peter Senge, Joseph Jaworski, Otto Scharmer and Betty Sue Flowers) especially within the chapter "Seeing with the heart."
John has pioneered for western civilization a unique, vital way of spiritual cultivation in nature. His vision quest and shamanic work began in the mid-1940s, at the age of seven.
As a former Woodrow Wilson Scholar and professor of environmental studies at the University of Illinois, Springfield, John has conducted numerous lectures and seminars on the environment and earth-honoring spirituality within the United States, including at Harvard and Princeton Universities, and more recently, at MIT and Naropa University. He is a founding board member of The Academy for Systemic Change, initiated by Peter Senge and a group of close associates. John was the first ecologist on staff at the White House in the 1970s, working with the President's Council of Economic Advisors.
John is the founder of Threshold, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of sacred lands and The Way of Nature Fellowship. He also created the Sacred Passage process of awareness training, where his 12 Principles are widely taught. He is the author of “Sky Above Earth Below: Spiritual Practice in Nature” and numerous other books, articles, audio and video presentations on ecology and spiritual practices.
