Val Nathan leads the wilderness experience of a lifetime.  The Boundary Waters is 2 million acres of interconnected lakes, rivers, woods, cliffs, bluffs and wildlife - where no motorized vehicles, roads, houses, or human development of any kind has ever been allowed. 

Video from Val's 5-day 2010 trip to Boundary Waters

"This is God’s country for real.  I know of no other place on earth that’s this pristine and untouched.  With no human footprint at all, Divine silence pervades.  It’s wild (but completely safe) and you will feel things you have never felt before.  Some of the greatest experiences of my life include:  seeing Osho for the first time; God giving me a son; and a friend and I canoeing the Boundary Waters for a week - the only 2 human beings within a 3,000-square-mile radius!  I will never forget it as long as I live".  ~ Swami Premodaya
