With John Milton

Join pioneering ecologist, activist and wilderness leader John Milton on a rare visit to the UK, as he brings a 3 day Nature Renewal programme to Schumacher College.

Since the 1950s, John has guided thousands of people into the wilderness, sharing with them experiences and practices that cultivate a profound connection with nature. He calls this path the ‘Way of Nature’.

From this path, he has developed the ‘12 Guiding Principles of Natural Liberation’, which unfold as participants become attuned to their inner nature through direct experiential awareness. The main focus is to deepen ones experience with the connection of all life and to reveal ones purpose and how to fulfil it.

This course will include two full days of awareness training and solitary time in nature. During the course you will learn practices to cultivate presence, relaxation and sensory refinement as well as ways to liberate internal blockages.

John Milton

With his background as a professional ecologist (the first ecologist in the White House in the early 1970s) and a pioneering history in the environmental movement, John Milton embodies a unique blending of scientific grounding in ecology with the heart and mind openness of a spiritual seeker.  For much of his life, John has worked to establish what he calls "Sacred Ecology" as a new cultural foundation for the West. He brings with him the ‘Way of Nature’, a body of practice distilled from many years of extensive years of solo time in nature, extensive personal vision questing and direct teachings from many of the world’s outstanding spiritual teachers and lineages.
