Ken's Mission Statement

  • Make deep connections with myself, others, the natural world and with the great mystery.

  • Grow, and expand.

  • Recognize abundance.


Ken Wylie is an adventurer who is profoundly different from the boy who entered into his mountain life thirty-five years ago. In 2003, he survived burial in an avalanche to experience the deep and tragic consequence of his choices. It was when he stopped to write his first book, Buried, that he discovered the freedom found by making meaning of his adventurous life and being accountable for his choices and actions. Ken understands that our ability to connect to truth, wisdom and wholeness is critical to healthy individuals and society. In fact, our survival as a species may depend on looking deeply into ourselves for the truth about our lives and current reality.

Ken Wylie’s speaking, writing and reflective programs enter into this unique and important space. His work harnesses the inner wisdom of his clients and supports their own personal development so they can connect more deeply with themselves, others and their environment.

After all, human evolution requires that we consciously and actively attend to the development of the human spirit. It is time to make a practice of answering the question, “What am I meant to learn here?”
