What we do :
We facilitate one’s connection to the natural environment, each other and a deeper connection to one's self.

We've been running a broad range of holistic experiential ed programs in the mountains, as well as workshops, in South America, & the U.S. since 1998.

Come Join Us! Reconnect! Delve into the inner and outer landscapes.

Participants on MSI programs have a greater appreciation and understanding of their own resources, of other individuals around them, as well as a better sense of their place in the natural world.
Self reliance, compassion, service, centeredness, physical fitness and interpersonal community-building, as well as caring for, and understanding of the natural environment, are all hallmarks of our mission.
Outcomes - An increased sense of joy and peace.
