The Art of Mirroring

May 4 - May 10, 2019

Mirroring is a unique form of creative expression that empowers a person with a deeper, clearer picture of themselves, and their gifts. Mirroring seeks to draw out what is beautiful, strong, healing and powerful in a person’s story, in the most artful, authentic and heartfelt way. At its best, it can be peerless in magically weaving together an individual’s journey, the collective story of a group, and the timeless, mythical narrative of Life. 

Many report finding mirroring to be the most profoundly impactful and transformative part of their wilderness quest experience. It is the place where their ceremony, their solo time and their whole life to date comes together, integrating into a deeper level of awareness and inner strength. We consider it an essential tool for guides, coaches, counselors, and anyone in the fields of healing, personal growth, adult maturation or mentorship.

The Art of Mirroring is a seven-day wilderness deep dive into this practice led by rites of passage guides Rob Miller and Ruth Wharton in the beautifully expansive eastern Oregon wilderness. Incorporating the medicine wheel and solo walks out in nature, participants will be both subjects and objects of the transformative experience. With each passing day you will grow your own facility, range and expression in the art of listening, sharing and reflecting on sacred stories.

“Some might say that the future is in technology. Yet there is another evolutionary force happening simultaneously. This is a return to heart-and-soul-centric human council. A circle where people share stories and listen to the truth, beauty and goodness in one another. I recommend Cascadia Quest’s Mirror Training for anyone who feels a call to get more deeply in touch with their humanity and core essence. I recommend it to anyone who would like to be part of magnifying the need for more village-mindedness to counter today’s excessive tip to egoic i-consciousness. I recommend it to anyone who would like to practice the creative art of storytelling for social impact. In addition, the training is a wonderful way to be introduced to or strengthen one’s commitment to the powerful medicine of the Four Shields.”
