Rediscovering ancient spiritual paths in creation that lead to wholeness in spirit, soul, and body.

Ancient Paths offers a tailored, inclusive, and accessible experience for individuals and groups of all ages looking to take intentional steps toward spirit, soul, body wholeness.  The experience includes two months of pre-work, with each month including a face to face (or zoom, during the current crisis) meeting with your cohort of participants.  It culminates in a 48-72 hour wilderness experience, unplugged from civilization and free to listen to what God has for you through creation, text, and all that you’ve been learning.

2021 Ancient Paths Trips

We are currently in the guide training season for Ancient Paths. As we dream and pray over the 2021 summer season please join us in prayer for another safe and transforming summer of trips in the mountains of Washington. 

New trips will be announced at the beginning of 2021.

Connect with Christ and engage with your story through the text of creation and the practice of spiritual disciplines on a fully-guided Ancient Paths Experience.

Steps to Wholeness

The core theme of spirit soul body wholeness is pursued through engagement with spiritual disciplines, consideration of how we’re shaped by our stories, and a time in the wilderness intentionally seeking revelation from God through creation, text, and our own souls.

Falling Upwards

One author says we spend the first half of our lives building our container, and the remaining time is best used filling the container with meaning.  Using that template, this group will focus the spirit soul body steps toward unique second half challenges and opportunities.
