The Promise of This Adventure
You will transform as a leader in all areas of your life. You will gain greater clarity around your life’s mission and how to best utilize your unique skills and gifts to serve those around you. You will leave with a fierce purpose, direction and greater sense of inner peace than ever before.
Clarity. Calling. Connection.
Hey my name is Michael Cazayoux, and I created Soul Searching Adventures because it sounded like the funnest thing on the planet to me. My intention for you on this trip is that you get the following:
Clarity on your “calling,” your “mission,” your Dharma. A better understanding of what you were put on this earth do do
Leadership skills that allow you to rapidly create more trust and bring out the best in every person you serve
A blueprint for creating radically deeper and more fulfilling relationships
A deep sense of connection with yourself and the natural world around you
An unforgettable adventure that will forever alter the trajectory of your life
This adventure is for anyone who is ready to…
Find your calling
“Our calling is where our deepest gladness and the world’s hunger meet.” This trip will give you the space to explore what that is for you or deepen your understanding if you’d already found it.
Unleash your creativity
You will free up tidal waves of creative energy to use in your work, your relationships and other projects.
Make a more meaningful impact
Discover what your unique gifts are and where your highest point of contribution can be to the world.
Be maximally stretched
Be challenged physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is for you if you want to see what you are made of. This trip will stretch you in every direction.
Live with greater integrity
The most powerful way to lead is by example. You will learn how to further align your words and actions, and your example will have a massive effect on those around you.
Create radically deeper relationships
Relationships are the most important, sacred parts of our lives. On this trip you will learn to lead ALL of your relationships to place of greater depth and intimacy.
How this all started…
MY very first soul searching adventure was in 2008 – a wilderness therapy program for drug addicts.
When I started the program I was filled with anxiety, depression, and a deep sense of shame. I was even starting to flirt regularly with the idea of killing myself.
I spent 9 weeks living in a tent and hiking around the mountains of southern Utah with 15 other boys. I did lots of therapy, learned how to express my emotions around my peers, learned to set up 5 different forms of shelters using a tarp and some string, how to start a fire with a bow drill in under 30 seconds and most importantly I learned the greatest camping game ever: PELT.
9 weeks later I emerged… I had clarity for the first time in my life. I had some peace of mind. And I knew a shit load more about being outdoors. My journey to recovery had just begun and so had my love of being completely immersed in nature.
There will be many elements of surprise on this trip, but here’s what you can expect:
- I will give you some questions to ponder and either write about or share about
- I will give you written exercises
- We will have a lot of deep conversations that invite you to be vulnerable about diffferent topics
- You will have a lot of time to connect with your “inner-teacher” or “inner-guru” to find your own answers for your life
If you don’t already know how to use backpacking gear, you gon’ learn. Myself and a trained guide will show you all of the ins and outs of using backpacking gear and will give you the basics of surviving in the wilderness as long as you have modern camping gear. We will not be killing deer with our bare hands. That’s on Epic Soul Searching Adventure SuperMasterclass. Here are some other things we may cover:
- Orienteering and way-finding
- Water principles
- Leave no trace principles (protect the planet y’all)
- Setting up camp
- Cooking in the wilderness
- Climate stuff
- What to do in emergency situations
