Life-Changing Journeys in Nature

Walking up the gently sloping dirt path, enjoying the lush green flowering plants passing to the left and right, you take a moment to look at the path and the mountain ahead. The path forks, offering options to the left, toward a beautiful valley along a trickling stream and right- toward the peak of the mountain.

Get back in touch with your own infinite creativity.

Wilderness Workshops are personal development events that take place in locations of beautiful nature. We go into wilderness, packing light and leaving everything behind. Our focus will be on presence, compassion, purpose. We’ll aim first to relax and quiet the mind with meditation and guided visualization, and then we’ll create ceremony to reconnect with nature, to reawaken the part of us that remembers how at home we feel surrounded by plants, rocks, trees, mountains. Depending on the event, we may inquire about a particular question- a decision, the steps to a path forward, or something much deeper.

Why Wilderness?

Nature has a way of bringing clarity to our minds- allowing the anxiety and mind-chatter created in our modern day to day lives to dissolve, in turn allowing our own creativity, positivity, and sense of purpose to arise. It is in this state that we are able to best pursue the great questions in front of us.

About me

Kevin Ford

Hi, I’m Kevin Ford, and I’m here to support, motivate, and help you envision and create the life you want to live. My purpose in life is to help raise consciousness past fear, scarcity, and materialism up to love, abundance, and living lives of purpose.

My values are honesty, personal responsibility, service, and adventure.

My path to this role:


My path of personal development began after finishing university. I started a job in my studied field of finance, and within two weeks knew that it wasn’t for me, but didn’t have a clue what to do. I began to reach out for resources- books, websites, friends, mentors, workshops and anything else I could find. I’d make progress, then hit a wall and slump back in resignation that while work appeared to suck, at least it was only forty years. The next 12 years would take me through study, investigation, and transformation of self-esteem, self-confidence, emotional beliefs, personal responsibility, love and self-loathing, euphoria and depression, achievement and failure.

I moved around the country and the world, my physical world mirroring my internal search for fulfillment. I lived in San Francisco, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and then settled in Las Vegas to attend grad school here, thinking I could help people relax, feel good, and enjoy themselves by working for a resort casino company. That decision was on the right track, but not deep enough, and not in the right area- I was still working in finance. The longer I stayed, the worse I felt, and the stronger a message in my head became: “If you continue doing this for the next 20 or 30 years, you will have wasted your life.”

By this time, all the personal development work and emotional transformation work I had done had already lead me to the conclusion that I wanted to devote my life to achieving my dream by supporting others as they strove to find their path of purpose, and then support them on that path. I took over a year from the time I had that realization to actually execute it and quit my job- a decision I made while on vacation hiking in the Alps.

Now, firmly on my path, the value I give to clients is helping them move along the path I’ve been on much faster than I did. The areas in which I can help include:

  • Exploration and rebuilding of self-esteem
  • Finding and reprogramming limiting beliefs
  • Digging deep to discover your purpose in life
  • Creating action to get on the path toward that purpose

I’m 43 years old, and have lived all over the Southwestern U.S. and Japan as well. My interests include hiking and backpacking, adventuring, personal development, and helping people along their path toward finding their purpose. I’m a member of Red Rock Search and Rescue, and am trained in Wilderness First Aid, as well as CPR, navigation in nature, primitive skills, and a horde of other outdoor-related skills.

I have a BS in Finance and MBA/MSHA and worked in the hospitality industry for a number of years, where my desire to help people relax and enjoy themselves was a great asset. I’ve had a number of other careers; two of my favorites were teaching English as a second language and tending bar.

My life is devoted to personal growth and fulfillment, both mine and yours.
