consult & training
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 / consultation sessions that involve a process of questioning as well as provide information on safety, structure, legalities and holding practices.
Topics can include:
Logistics for wilderness programmes
menu / hiking food (specifically re. quantities)
routes planning (can include transport suggestions)
legalities / indemnity
equipment lists and rental options
Intersection of mental and environmental health
Ecotherapeutic programme design
Rites of passage programme design
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.

We walk in all weather.
You do not need to be fit.
We walk as slow as is necessary.
