What happens when you cross the threshold
and stretch yourself horizon to horizon?
What emerges when you empty yourself of everything and crack open with the land?
The modern-day wilderness fast is a new/old ritual of setting time aside in sacred ceremony to be by ourselves in/with/as wild nature in order to leave behind the voices of the dominant culture, cross over into a liminal space where our senses re-awaken, and we re-member our deep belonging, and bring our gifts back to our communities.
The voice of your true self does not give up easily. It’s been whispering to you, maybe for a long time.
In the rite-of-passage we cross a threshold into liminal space, where we find a world alive with sentience and with meaning as we come into a conversation with animals, trees, rocks, spirit, and our own true natures. From this conversation we may come away with treasure; inspired and imbued with pieces of our truest voice and wild purpose to bring back to a world in need.
