WilderneSS (Wilderness Spiritual Solitude) takes people out of modern society where there are many distractions and ways to mindlessly pass the time into solitude where they can connect with God and spend intimate time listening to Him.
WILDERNESS SPIRITUAL SOLITUDE’S VISION
The vision of WilderneSS is to inspire leaders to pursue deeper intimacy with the Lord.
BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW WILDERNESS SPIRITUAL SOLITUDE GOT STARTED AND WHY IT EXISTS
The first excursion took place in 2002 in the West Elk Wilderness area of Colorado. It came about from the Founder’s own experience in spending extended time with God in the wild. WilderneSS exists to provide participants five days of isolation and solitude in a wilderness setting in order to seek God and reflect deeply on their lives.
