Outward Bound Canada Mindfulness programs take traditional mindfulness practices and blends them with classic elements of an Outward Bound course. Mindfulness, an ancient tradition and the core practice of meditation, is simply the ability to be deeply present in the here and now. The Outward Bound experience of hiking through the mountains, taking on physical challenges and pushing you to do your best will give you a new perspective and allow you to see aspects of yourself that you may not have realized were there. It will reconnect you with your true self, giving you more confidence and motivation than ever before. The course is designed to help adults who are seeking greater clarity – perhaps in times of challenge and transition – who need space to reflect on their lives or who want to learn or deepen a meditation practice – or who simply want to walk their own path more deeply. This course will leave you more present, relaxed and aware of who you are and what unique gifts you have to offer the world – and help you feel ready to take on new paths or challenges at home.
You will begin the course at wilderness cabins, with several mountain hikes form the key activities of the first three days. Your will have a gradual progression into more wilderness based skills and experiences, culminating in a backpacking hike to the headwaters of the Nepisiguit River. On the peninsula of Lake Nictau, you will have the opportunity to do a solo phase with a meaningful process of reflection activities and self-reliance challenges. The course is led by a pair of highly experienced instructors who will guide you through your mental and physical journey. The group will have enriching experiences in the adventures, hearty meals and time at base camp with thoughtful, fun touches on all aspects of the course.
