Our Mission

To facilitate one’s connection to the natural enviroment, each other and a deeper connection to one's self.

From Wilderness to Workshops:

Participants on our programs will 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 hallmarks of our mission.

Still need some clarity, want a visual? See more..

Our Purpose:

Mountain Spirit Institute’s purpose is to provide a forum for teachers, lecturers, authors and artists to teach, facilitate or publish what they have to offer the world. These givers are invited to come into the circle and to teach, for a day, or a lifetime, under the financial, legal and administrative umbrella of the organization as long as they meet the criteria, as set by the board and administration, the bylaws, MSI’s policies, and their offering falls within the scope of the mission statement.

Return to top of page

Our Core Values:

MSI will continue to offer consistently emotionally and physically challenging, safe, high-quality programs that vary in their scope and medium. The programs will always involve the tenants of connection, compassion, centering, and awareness which in turn enable and empower individuals to be more self reliant, and contribute more to family, society and our world.

Body Mind and Spirit
Science is proving what the Eastern Mystics have known all along, that we are "all connected" on a very basic level and our thoughts literally create our reality. Healthy diet, exercise and some form of spiritual centering and training of the mind are all interrelated and important aspects of a healthy life.



Experiential Learning
One learns much better from an educational process based on doing and reflecting on the experience rather than a pure lecture. Participants learn through challenges presented in a logical and incremental way. A value forming experience can happen in a short amount of time when facilitated and reflected upon appropriately.



Learning from Indigenous Wisdom

An overlooked aspect and connection in our modern-day technological society is the people who have lived before us. We are just now understanding the depth and wisdom of indigenous cultures throughout the world, and they are just now sharing what they know because humankind’s need to evolve for its own survival. We not only acknowledge this wisdom but actively seek connections with those still practicing traditional ways, and who have not forgotten the ways of their ancestors. We are a young culture and can learn much from "our Elders."


Environmental Education and Sustainability

Individuals will gain an increased sense of responsibility for the earth upon which we live, when they have a direct experience and personal relationship with the out-of-doors. Students have come home from a program and started a recycling center or framed a quote in their office reminding themselves of their experience and their relationship to the natural world. MSI programs can have a significant impact on one’s sensitivity to the natural world.

MSI is committed to devoting a substantial amount of its efforts as an organization to raising public awareness of environmental issues that directly affect our lives, such as global climate change, peak oil and sustainable living.

Social Responsibility
All programs impel participants into working and problem solving experiences together on manageable challenges presented by the facilitator and the nature of the program. By actually experiencing the results of their actions, participants can transfer new ideas and commitments to others at home, work, the community and the environment.

MSI fosters a sense of community through service projects. MSI directors, particpiants and programs all give back to the local communities through service, whether it's giving sweaters to villagers in Peru, or mowing the library lawn or picking up trash along the trail. Service projects are continuously being developed for future programs. MSI also gives back to the community in which it operates with scholarship programs and donations to local organizations as well as participating in community events.
