Join us as John P. Milton discusses how elements from the world’s Earth-honoring wisdom traditions can be integrated for personal and environmental transformation. He will draw upon his vast experience to show that intentional alignment with Sacred Lands can have profound healing effects. John will describe how ancient practices such as wilderness retreat, vision quest, ceremony and meditation are relevant today and help us fulfill our role as stewards of the Earth.
John P. Milton currently teaches with his organization, Sacred Passage and The Way of Nature Fellowship. As a practitioner of meditation since the 1950s, he has developed unique practices for uniting inner and outer nature through training in Buddhist, Taoist, Vedantic, Tantric, and Native American traditions.
