Integrate the ways of the wilderness into your life.
Drawing on indigenous wisdom and spiritual teachings from all over the world, you will integrate powerful techniques, healthy habits and ancient rituals to help you live in harmony with yourself and your environment.
Embrace nature as your teacher and move with grace.
Using meditation techniques, contemplative exercises and moments of storytelling, you will learn how to use all of your senses to receive nature’s guidance. You will discover how to allow the force of life to flow through you freely, opening up limitless possibilities.
Become self-reliant in the wild and live courageously.
Learning how to survive and thrive in the wilderness reconnects us to the root of our humanity. You will learn the wilderness skills you need to rewild your body, mind and spirit, deepen your connection to nature, and build resilience to face any challenge in life.
Join a tribe that supports you in every way.
In the wilderness, we need each other to thrive. By going on this journey together, you will join a new tribe of friends, celebrating life together and supporting each other through hardship, be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
The rewilding journeys focus on reawakening our wild spirit by returning to the root of our humanity.
We come together to discover ancient techniques from indigenous cultures that help us integrate nature’s wisdom into our daily lives. And we learn what it takes to survive and thrive in the wilderness.
We practice wilderness skills, strengthen and rewild our bodies, and reignite the awe and wonder of the mesmerising beauty surrounding us everywhere. By becoming part of the wilderness, we realize happiness can be as simple as the pure enjoyment of our senses in the present moment.
About your guide
My name is Sacha Post. I am a wilderness guide, coach, and philosopher from the Netherlands.
I organise rewilding journeys, nature retreats, and courses to share nature’s ancient wisdom and help you meet your source in the wilderness.
After obtaining a master’s degree in cultural analysis, I continued to study the ancient traditions and practices of people who lived in harmony with nature for over seven years. I lived in communities all over the world and spent a great deal of time in remote wildernesses, learning first-hand how to integrate these practices into my own life.
Forever remaining a student of nature, I now share how to live a life full of awe and wonder, aligned with the cyclical flow of life.
Those who came before
Many have completed the journey in the last few years. Read on to discover how they experienced it.
“The journeys are great to take some time off to think about deeper processes, choices and undercurrent. I am in awe of the wisdom, effortlessness, balance, and pureness that Sacha just seems to ooze. He guided me back to nature. Not only with long walks and bushcrafting, but especially through the ancient philosophies of the world and the wisdom of our ancestors. The peace and clarity I found prove that Sacha is a wilderness guide in the most holistic sense of the word.” —Klazien
“Do not underestimate the power of these journeys, of nature, or of Sacha as your guide. You will sink deep, you will reconnect, and you will develop stillness. Learning from nature through Sacha is a pleasure and a gift. The core of this teaching and the treasure I take home is presence: the deep listening and awareness of my inner and outer world through inner stillness. This presence is the invitation of nature and the direct experience of Nature of Wonder.” —Maurits
““The journeys are a truly magical combination of philosophical and cultural stories, practical exercises, meditations, and being outdoors to learn wilderness skills. There was still so much for me to learn. Sacha is a wise and patient teacher who made me feel understood in my needs and love for nature. I have returned to the reality of the urban jungle with a strong sense of what I need and want to do.” —Toos
“My rewilding experience was one of coming home into myself. Sacha is such a wonderful guide, as he makes sure you are well prepared, and then gets out of your way, empowering you to have your own experience, offering guidance, advice and ideas, while always leaving plenty of space for you to experience nature your own way. The forest opened me up, softened me, humbled me and peeled off layers that society had lured me into. I take home with me a sense of self-reliance, and a sense of triumph, not over nature, but over my own limiting beliefs.” —Jaap
“I have found Sacha guiding us naturally through our processes within the larger process of nature. Ever since, I am more aware that nature is always thriving and present, holding us, nurturing us, and giving birth to us. When you want to live a life in line with the natural pace of life, go to these journeys. Here you have the opportunity to surround yourself with like-minded beings and a strong, gentle, sincere guide.” —Anke
“I find myself in nature, in the silence, the freedom, the peace. That is where I connect to my heart. I gave myself the beautiful gift to return to nature. Sacha is a source of vision, knowledge, and inspiration. I have learned a lot and taken it in completely.” —Jelmer

Everything you want to know
Answers to much-asked questions. Anything else you want to know? Send us a message.
What is the schedule like, and what will I learn?
You learn what it takes to survive and thrive in the wilderness. You acquire practical skills to survive and thrive in the wild, such as how to make shelter, build an effective fire, and navigate in deep wilderness.
We wake you gently in the morning to gather around the fire and start the day with natural movement and breathing exercises to strengthen our bodies. We then meditate together and guide you into a deep state of surrender to listen to what nature has to tell us. We focus on embracing the ways of nature, and you will immediately apply what you have learned. For example, you learn how to use your senses to become completely aware of your environment and discover what the plants, trees and animals can tell you about yourself. You will receive contemplative exercises based on indigenous wisdom, after which you are free to roam in nature on your own and reflect on the larger currents in your life.
We also use ancient techniques to help you merge with nature and find inner peace, such as vision quests, in which you will be on your own in the wilderness for an extended period within a safe container. We spend time in complete silence to become more attuned and sensitive to nature’s guidance and wisdom. And in the evenings, we sit around the fire, playing music and telling stories under the stars.
I have never done something like this. Do I need to have experience?
No. We designed these journeys to be accessible for reasonably fit and healthy people. You will be in a safe space, supported by an experienced team, so you can feel at ease and allow the ways of the wilderness to come to you naturally. If you doubt whether you can go on this journey, please don’t hesitate to contact Sacha at [email protected].
What do I need to bring with me?
Most of us have never learned how to be comfortable outside, especially in bad weather. Learning to dress for the outdoors is simply life-changing. When we know what to bring and wear, our bodies can relax and become intimate with nature in all its shapes and forms.
When you join, you receive a detailed packing list explaining what you need and why you need it, including recommendations for all budgets. Expect a simple list to fulfil your basic needs in the forest, like a tarp, sleeping mat, sleeping bag, headlamp, and clothing to keep you warm and dry, as well as a backpack and tools like a knife, folding saw, firesteel, compass, water bottle, and cooking pot. We keep it simple, encouraging you to do more with less, relying on skills instead of bringing more equipment.
What will I eat? How will I wash? And where will I sleep?
The wilderness will be our accommodation. At a leisurely pace, we will explore the wilderness of Fulufjället, setting up camp in the ancient forests at the foot of the mountains. We give ourselves more than enough time to reflect, practice the ways of the wild and live with each other as a tribe. There are plenty of pristine lakes, rivers, and streams where you can wash. You will prepare and carry your food and equipment for this journey. Of course, you will receive all the guidance you need to prepare yourself well.
Where will we meet and how will I get there?
The journey starts at the eastern edge of Fulufjället, where we will stay overnight in a cabin so we can hike out together early the next morning. You can choose to drive with us from the Netherlands the day before and take the ferry to Scandinavia together.
Alternatively, you can also fly or take a bus to Sweden and then take a train to Särna, where you can get to the park’s edge by bus, and we can pick you up. We return to the park’s edge in the late morning of the last day of the journey so we can continue travelling home. If you drive back with us to the Netherlands, you’ll be back home the day after. You will connect with the other participants so we can make plans together.
