Everyone is looking for something and trying to find their way to something in their own lives whether personally, professionally, in relationships or with family.  Trackers do this and the the tools of the tracker can be applied to one’s own life.

What will it take to find your way to a life that feels like a fuller expression of who you are and what your creativity is?  People who discover this create lives that are unique, unconventional and full of purpose.  The life tracker creates an outer life that is a deeper reflection of their inner values by paying attention and tracking their internal guidance system.

Tracking a Meaningful Life


Somewhere deep inside, you know what your gift, purpose, and mission are. In The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Life Boyd Varty, a lion tracker and life coach, reveals how the wisdom from the ancient art of tracking can teach you how to recognize these essential ingredients in a meaningful life.

Know how to navigate, don’t worry about the destination, and stay alert. These are just a few of the strategies that contribute to both successful lion tracking and a life of fulfillment. When we join Boyd Varty and his two friends tracking lions, we are immersed in the South African bush…


This book is about connecting with nature and connecting with the nature inside of oneself.  The ancient art form of tracking awakens a primal magnetism and understanding in people. There is a deep desire to in people to connect with nature – the natural world is speaking to us, it is full of wisdom.  There is a place inside each one of us that knows what aliveness and fulfilment feel like.  This is the wild self.  Overlaying this is the social self that makes us lose touch with the wild self which is bound to the rhythms of the earth and the truest version of ourselves.

Tracking is science, a mythology, an art form and a toolkit.  The book is a journey about the quest to track a pride of lions but it is also about getting the reader to start to think about stepping onto the trail of their own life to discover what it is they are looking for. Tracking is the first story that humanity ever told, it takes you places that you would never have expected to go.

The book offers:
– A Common language to connect people to their wild self
– Nature prescriptions
– An exciting adventure on the tracks of a pride of lions
