The Point Retreats is ready to create the ultimate wilderness adventure part two! Join us for 4 nights and 5 days during the 2020 Summer Solstice in the Boundary waters canoe area where you will submerse yourself in the 5 million acres of remote primeval wilderness between the Minnesota and Canadian border. We will be active as we canoe between the thousand pristine lakes and portage through the vast network of forests.

Enjoy waking to the ground underneath you, morning movement of Qigong by the lake, the sun and stars above that guide your day/night, the calm that comes from surrounding yourself in nature, the adventure of pioneering your path, the primitive Paleo style meals, and campfire conversations about the health benefits of living as our ancestors did! This trip will be the ultimate biohack as you rise with the sun, sleep under the stars, and experience a profound release from all modern intricacies (aka – no blue lights or EMF’s here).

In the wild, we confront evidence of energy greater than our own, experience a profound peace in the quiet solitude, and a freedom in being close to nature. The 8 Most Important aspects of health will naturally surround us on this trip – Sunshine, Sleep, Water, Food, Nature, Movement, Air, and Tribe.
