the .raw experience
Our mission is to provide a space. A space that allows individuals to open their heart for an experience that is authenic and true to them. Through our two passions of adventure & holistic health, the .raw
experience was created.
A space to push oneself deeper and outside of comfort zones. Through facing fears in the physical (rock climbing) & sitting with oneself in the mental (meditation) blockages + fears can be overcome as the lessons now have a space to expose themselves.
A space for the true teacher within to emit itself. Through group + individual work, the healing can begin. Mother Earth is our greatest healer and shes one we’d like you to sit within as you sit & push through the uncomfortablity on this experience.
Our mission is to provide a space.
A space where we can create, allow & grow through onward to becoming our greatest self. While on this adventure we will adventure together within.
Sequoia National Forest
6 spots available
If you've never climbed before, what a great time to learn and step outside of your comfort zone. Climbing tests your mental game as well as your physical.. and in our opinion there is nothing more satisfying than reaching the top and conquering that mental block. We will provide all climbing equipment + instruction. There will be climbing for all levels of skill on this crag.
We have 2 hikes planned. One is a hike along the river bank to a waterfall + the other is through the magical Sequoia National Forest to see the massive giants that guard the forest.
One hike is 5.8 miles round trip & the other is 1.4 miles round trip.
Breathwork, Qi Gong, Meditations, Yoga + Circle Work
Every morning we will start our day with morning energizers + breath work. When we are not adventuring we will be delving deep within through various holistic health modalities lead by JP.
With the hot spring right on the river, this provides a perfect spot to cycle between cold + hot water therapy. Plus add in all the minerals from the ground.. this is truly a magical experience.
In years past we've gotten large Air Bnb's to accommodate everyone & to host working in spaces. Since the virus, we are taking things outside and adding an extra level of adventure. All working in work will be held at our group campsite + will double as our lodging. The types of shelters available are listed below.
We will have a large community tent for meditations + group work. This tent will also double for group sleeping accomodations. This tent will have a small space heater with many blankets, pillows + sleeping bags.
We will have two individual tents provided with sleeping pads + sleeping bags. These will be upon first come first serve basis or given to people who feel more comfortable sleeping in a seperate shelter.
If you have camping gear, bring it!!
Please tell us below what you will need for sleeping gear or what you have & are planning on bringing.
