What exactly is a Deva SoulJourney?

A time to go shut off your log off social media and....

build trust, share your story, take risks, and 

create lifelong friendships with the other members of your group. 


A time to be so present in the now there is nowhere else to be but here.

A time to remember who you are and rekindle who you want to be.


Fear, anticipation, hope & excitement are common feelings.


Going away from home for the first time can feel scary.

Let us support you. Your voice will be heard. 


We will spend several days base camping and getting to know each other.

We will take time to learn the skills we need to thrive during our backcountry wilderness expedition.


Out on the trail, we start each day with outdoor yoga for anyBody, hike a few miles with our backpacks to beautiful & inspiring settings, learn to cook delicious & nourishing food with limited supplies, participate in experiential & creative workshops on topics that matter, laugh....a lot , and close each day with a sacred share circle.

Year after year, Summer Search Deva SoulJourney participants reflect on their experience and offer advice to next year's participants.
