Moonlight Baboons

In the middle of the night across the river a lion roars.  I rise from a half sleep and walk to the sliding doors that shut the night out. As they slide open a dimension opens. There is a distinct sense of stepping through a threshold as I go outside into the night. I feel in a few steps I have stepped from a domesticated comfort into a moonlit wildness.

The air is cool on my bare skin and the stars faint against the size of the moon. An ebony tree towers to my right silhouetted in silver light. From …

Connecting the Wilderness of Africa to You and Your Journey

It’s no secret that if I had the choice between technology or tracking an animal in the wilderness, I’d choose tracking. That said, I know that connecting this world village is made much easier, and more effective, with the use of the wonderful world of technology, social media and media sharing.

Join me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for more regular updates on what I’m up to and for up to date info on the retreats that I’ll be running in future. Let’s create connections from the wilderness of Africa to wherever you are in your journey…

Step Into Your Power: The Empowered Visionary World Summit

 

Wisdom and enlightenment are nothing if not shared with those around us. My heart and roots are grounded in the ancient art of storytelling, and this allows me to share what I have learned, and share my essence with those around me.

Kari is the perfect person …

The Art of Tracking

Track Your Life Men

It was so great to sit down with my friend Patrick o shaunnessy  for a conversation about the art of tracking on his podcast the investorfield guide. Patrick and I come from very different necks of the wood so to speak but we quickly realized that while our lives are very different we are both inner trackers. By this I mean we both people who are interested in what it means to live a fully engaged life and in that way both trackers of meaning.

Hope you will enjoy this journey into tracking.

This week’s episode is the most unique …

Village Building: Cultivating a sense of shared wellbeing

I see it time and time again in my own village. By working hard to cultivate a sense of shared wellbeing- be it to keep common areas neat and tidy, to regenerate the village by planting life back into it, or to keep an eye on your fellow neighbour’s health in times of sickness, it cultivates the best in everyone. It becomes a place to return to a deeper humanity and begins to represent a place for much deeper connections. The village, and village living, becomes a way that we can all hold each other in community, and it gives those …

A Sense of Wilderness

DSC_0038

I am always struck deeply by the sense of belonging I have when I drive out on a piece of wild land with no other person around and see a creature as magnificent as a leopard and he accepts my presence. I pray that other people will have the chance to feel that. I pray for future generations to have that chance. I want to bottle the feeling of awe and safety that comes when we begin to lose our fear of the unknown wilderness and see it for what it …

Lessons from the Wild Part 1

The natural world is always communicating with us. If we learn to listen and learn from it, there is no better teacher on the subject of how we should live.

In the process of tracking our lives and building our villages, we naturally become more closely attuned with the natural world. We begin to fall into the rhythms of nature, and to understand the guidance and lessons we are receiving. We come to see the harmony of nature’s unfolding and all the ways it holds us. Our souls are fed as we learn to live in line with our …
