Join us for this Digital Detox adventure! Fall and rise with the sun, paddle through the clear blue waters of the Boundary Waters lakes, and portage amidst acres of pristine wilderness. Disconnect from modern intricacies of today's world, reconnect with the outdoors and discover the healing powers of nature. On this adventure, you will enjoy Paleo style meals cooked over the campfire, meaningful movement all day long, and creating a community of wilderness travelers. Discover the wild side of health!
The Point Retreats is ready to create the ultimate wilderness adventure part three! Join one of our experienced and certified wilderness females as they lead our 2022 trip!
For 3 nights and 4 days during the fall season, you will submerse yourself within 5 million acres of remote primeval wilderness between the Minnesota and Canadian border- better known as the Boundary waters canoe area: 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 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.
This trip requires being adaptable to all elements of nature, activity, and adventure! Canoe, paddles, Sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent, backpacks, campfire chairs, first aide supplies, water filters, and food/cooking utensils will be provided. You will need to bring clothing and shoes to prepare for all elements of weather and activity and all personal items desired that can fit into your backpack and are eco-friendly. What you bring in, you will be responsible to carry in and out. We will provide a recommended list of personal supplies.
