“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.
Natalie, a field guide, shares a story of perseverance and humility. A troubled teen made the choice to come to Outback Therapeutic Expeditions to experience wilderness therapy to put her life on the right path. The young girl struggled for hours to bust a coal (create fire using friction) and was unable to but she didn’t give up! The next day she busted! 🙂
