John Milton is a pioneering ecologist, spiritual teacher, meditation master, vision quest leader, and shaman. His vision quest and shamanic work began in the mid-1940s, after experiencing his first vision quest at the age of seven. A founding father of the environmental movement in the early 1960s, he has guided thousands of people into the wilderness to cultivate a deep ecological experience of communion with nature and the earth. The founder of Sacred Passage and The Way of Nature Fellowship, John and his guides offer Sacred Passage Awareness Trainings and wilderness solo experiences year round for individuals and groups. John is a former professor of environmental studies and Woodrow Wilson Center scholar at the Smithsonian and was one of the first ecologists ever on staff at the White House as a member of the President’s Council of Economic Advisors. He is also the founder of Threshold, an international center for environmental renewal.
