Awake in the Wild Teacher Training

Awake in the Wild Teacher Training

The Awake in the Wild Teacher Training is an apprenticeship training in guiding contemplative nature practice, inspired by wisdom teachings from the Buddhist tradition, by Mark Coleman’s book Awake in the Wild (AITW) and by the wilderness retreats led by Mark for more than two decades across the Americas.

The Awake in the Wild Teacher Training is for people who care deeply about the earth, who have a strong Dharma / meditation practice and who take that contemplative presence into the outdoors. Equally important, it is for those who feel called to take people deep into nature with a spirit of reverence and contemplation.

The 2023-2024 training program has just started in Europe. The 2024-2025 training program will be held in North America.

“From the simplest feeling of a gentle breeze to the great mysteries of life and death, Mark Coleman guides us into an ever-deepening appreciation and understanding of the world around us. A jewel of a book, and highly recommended.”
