About Our Associates

Soul Paths

Also sharing this lineage is Steve McKenzie. He and Rain co-facilitated these quests twice/year between 2014-2020. Steve and his team are currently hosting two group quests a year (March/October) near Stirlings Road, Mt Byron which is about 1.5 hours north-west of Brisbane.  Additionally he is hosting 1-1 or small private 4-day vision quests at his home base at Dundas, Qld., and group dawn-dusk Nature sits supported by his vision quest experience.

Nature Philosophy


Founders Kate Rydge and Sam Robertson

Nature Philosophy run quests and other deep nature connection programs also in this lineage on the North Coast. If our quest dates don’t suit you, you may like to visit their calendar. They have since trained 100’s of people in skills inspired from their years at Tom Brown Jr.’s Tracker School in USA, and Malcolm Ringwalt’s programs.

Soulcraft Australia


Offering the work of the Animus Valley Institute both online and in-person, SoulCraft brings to life the core concepts and inspiration of Bill Plotkin, author of Soulcraft, Journey of Soul Initiation, Wild Mind, and Nature and the Human Soul. All of these inform the work of SoulScapes and are potentially wonderful resources for the quester.
