What makes this a specialty trip?

1. Specialty Programming 

Morning meditations and practices to get connected to ourselves, the earth, and each other.

Evening activities and workshops that  are designed to specifically to help you get in touch with your inner compass, your wild soul, and the tingling of your heart on fire. 

Fire ceremony  to burn away everything you no longer need in your new awesome life.

2. Intention and Re-entry coaching

In order to make your experience as impactful as possible, Rachel and Angela will be meeting with each trip member one on one ahead of time to explore your biggest intentions for the trip and create a deeply personal intention guide for your trip and beyond.

During the trip you will receive personalized one on one time with Rachel and Angela to track your unique experience on the river and give you even more tools to tackle your next rapid, whether it's on the river or internal.

After the program, we'll meet again for a re-entry session where we unpack your biggest lessons from the river and break them down into practical steps and practices to implement into your daily life. After you've discovered your next direction, we'll help you set up the systems you need to move toward it!

Rachel Thor is a Pennsylvania native who has grown up creating what she wanted out of life: classes, jobs, and even self-healing.

In undergrad she created her own major integrating wilderness studies, philosophy, art, and education, knowing that these were each an essential part of what she wanted to offer the world (even if she didn't know how at the time).

Rachel has been leading backpacking trips for 5 years, intuitively taught herself dance therapy before she knew it was a profession, and has spent countless hours over the past 10 years living out (and geeking out) about the fractal essence of life, purpose, and spiritual connection. Rachel’s mission is to help others step fully into their powerful purpose. She helps you discover and trust the unique genius that only you hold.

Today, as an Inner Compass Coach, she is weaving together her passion for adventure, play, and personal transformation in groundbreaking experiences for men and women to discover their deepest truth and follow their unique inner compass to live life's great adventure!
