Description: Most previous research on wilderness experience and spirituality focuses on women only or mixed male and female groups. This qualitative research study investigated the spiritual impact of participation in a men-only wilderness canoe trip. In-depth interviews were conducted after the trip with six participants. Interpretive analysis identified five themes: spiritual friendships, friendships facilitated by conversations, openness facilitated by the menonly group, spirituality facilitated by wilderness as God?s creation, and space for spirituality facilitated by wilderness.
