Online Spring Renewal Program
Reconnection and Renewal Retreat
May 7 - 9, 2021
An opportunity to connect with Outer, Inner, and True Nature
Are you yearning for more joy and happiness that comes from a deeper personal relationship with Nature? Join us for a 3-day online zoom gathering with John P. Milton, to re-awaken and energize our connection with Outer, Inner and True (Source) Nature....
Participants of Way of Nature programs report a deeper sense of stillness, vitality, and a refined sense of purpose and creative insight following a retreat. This is a special opportunity to learn directly from accomplished teacher and meditation master John. P Milton. This is a hybrid program format that combines online teachings with experiential application, followed by online community sharing and integration time. The retreat will include Awareness Training to teach you practices to increase relaxation, presence, vitality, and sensory refinement, as well as how to liberate internal emotional and energetic blockages. John will also combine an introduction to his Twelve Guiding Principles of Natural Liberation with reflective dialogue and guidance on how to bring the above practices into time alone (AllOne) in Nature. Day 2 is reserved for you to spend personal AllOne time alone in a sacred place in Nature near your location, to deepen your experience of energetic connection with all life.
Who is it for?
Way of Nature principles and programs have inspired and supported people from many walks of life. From personal and spiritual transformation, to exploring new paradigms in ecology, sustainability, and organizational development, people find inspiration, creative insight, and energy from this Process. We continue to work with many innovative organizations who have found the Way of Nature Process inspires operational creativity and supports an awakening of how to help the organization become more ecologically sustainable. At a time when individuals and organizations are seeking renewed purpose, connection and meaning in the world, John’s work is becoming more and more important. We hope you can join us!

John P. Milton Bio:
John P. Milton is an early ecologist, one of the founding fathers of the modern environmental movement. He worked and studied extensively in many of the world’s shamanic and enlightening traditions, beginning with his first Vision Quest at age seven. Since then, starting in the 1950's, John was one of the first to bring a contemporary Vision Quest form into modern urban/industrial/hi-tech culture.
One of his hopes is that by introducing this profound process to the West, many modern imbalances due to disconnection from Nature can be healed. John has distilled the common ground found in many enlightening and Nature-connected cultures; he brings this distillation of deep liberating wisdom and Nature-connected practice into a pathway that is accessible to all.
John brought this pathway together by founding Way of Nature in the 1970’s. This initiative provides three main goals: 1) to share a Way of refining our experiential connections to Nature, 2) to provide a clear, universal way to access pure Source Awareness [True Nature], and 3) to offer a direct path to allow our true purpose for this lifetime to be realized.
To learn more about the Way of Nature core teachings, we recommend reading John P Milton’s book: “Sky Above, Earth Below: Spiritual Practice in Nature”. We also recommend John's free podcasts available on Spotify and Google Podcast, as well as his free videos at vimeo.com/wayofnature and on YouTube. Links to John's books and podcasts are in this paragraph and on page one of this website.
