Vermont Wilderness Rites Be Still.       Listen.       What in your life is calling you?




Currently, all of our programs and services are being offered remotely using Zoom.  We hope to return to in-person programs in 2021.  



We have developed protocols to protect participants, guides, and the community from COVID 19.  Because state guidelines are changed weekly based on health data, our guidelines and expectations will be reviewed and updated as needed.  Examples of new procedures include requesting that people travel to programs in individual cars whenever possible, no group kitchen, daily temperature checks, statement of no COVID 19 symptoms or contact with someone with COVID 19 14 days prior to a program, social distancing in all group activities, and personal protective equipment.  


Protocols will be given to each participant at registration and updates as necessary. 


If an in-person program cannot be safely held and needs to be canceled, full refunds will be given.
