    Just read about Eagle's Nest, Erik. Sounds like a fantastic place to collect your thoughts & consider your actions. I'm based in the San Juan Mtns. near Telluride. The Center for Nature & Leadership (CNL) is based out of DC and T'ride.

    Thanks for the compliment about CNL - it's work that is my calling -- "empowering lives and careers of purpose", -- and the many offerings are being well-received. Check out the Fearless Leader movement on the website. The more, the merrier!

    Having grown up in Colorado, I was fortunate that nature was readily accessible. Whenever I needed perspective, I would head up the trail into the Eagle's Nest Primitive Area for three or four days. Nothing like siting on top of a 14,000' peak observing how things really work! Kudos to the Center for Nature & Leadership, sounds like a great program.
