“Awakening moments” are those pivotal moments that shape a person’s paradigm and changes the direction of their life. These life changing moments happen every day in the Outback wilderness for staff, students and therapists. While these moments are often small, they have big impacts on the lives of those experiencing them.
These awakening moments are the foundation of Outback.
Jeremy, a field guide with Outback Therapeutic Expeditions shares a story of making a rock sling with a student. This student was struggling with teen drug abuse and depression and Jeremy helped him to learn how to let go of the problems holding him back, just as you let go of the rock in the sling.
