Shamanic Wilderness Vigil Project

A “vigil” is a period of time staying “awake.”  It’s a special ritualized time of being in an enhanced awareness focused on observing a spiritual practice or intensity.


This Shamanic Wilderness Vigil is a period of time when Chivito is living in the backcountry of a wilderness area for three to six months observing specific shamanic practices, awarenesses, and rituals.  It’s living using mostly primitive methods while also maintaining a balance of being in the “world,” and serving community. 

This Shamanic Wilderness Vigil is to document three primary focus

  1. What’s it like to live in the wilderness using primitive skills and the experiences of being exposed to the elements 24/7

  2. The shamanic practices, mindsets, and rituals of connecting with the forest, animals, and the mountain.  The ancestral ways of being in relationship with “place”

  3. The step-by-step process of manifesting our next retreat center using ritual, micro-manifestations, and shamanic practices.  

What this is NOT....  this not to be a wilderness survivor reality show and does not demonstrate how to live completely off the land by foraging and hunting.  We honor state laws, tribal foraging territories and hunting seasons. It's a humble offering and we learn to share this as we do it.  Rather than an "All or Nothing" approach we hope show how to balance an immerse wilderness and spiritual lifestyle while still being a functional part of a community and society.  The peacemaker doesn't hide away but brings for the lessons to share and help other stir the remembrances within them. 


Providing hands on training in Shamanism helping you develop the awareness to access the potential within and join the conversation that's happening within every moment, with everything. OM!
