Coffee in Nature

For those developing their own programmes and projects that involve outdoor work there is a lot to think about and plan before the day arrives to head off into the wilds of your work. I love supporting projects that are contributing to "the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible".

So as to balance the energy required in sharing insights for other people's projects, with having enough energy for my own, I offer guidance and consultation sessions that involve a process of questioning as well as provide information on safety, structure, legalities and holding practices. 

Topics can include but are not limited to:


  • Intersection of mental and environmental health - ecotherapy

  • Ecotherapeutic programme design

  • Rites of passage programme design 

  • Logistics for wilderness programmes

    • budgets

    • safety

    • menu / hiking food (specifically re. quantities and nutrition)

    • routes planning (can include transport suggestions)

    • legalities / indemnity

    • equipment lists and rental options

The venue for meetings is a private nature reserve on Red Hill, Cape Town.

To start the conversation all meet-ups begin with walking in the reserve, along a simple, flat, sand track. The deliberate incorporation of the natural world into the guidance session is to acknowledge the many voices available to us if we care to listen - both in ourselves and in the natural world through metaphor. Mental effort can only get us so.

Consultation fee:

R1200 per hour 


We walk in all weather. 

You do not need to be fit.

We walk as slow as is necessary.

Location: Private Nature reserve - Red Hill, Cape Town
