The Rhythm of Nature

Every year I disappear into the bush to reconnect. These are my most treasured times. These are the times that have significantly impacted my life and drawn me towards my true self and living my purpose. The rhythm of Nature allows us to slow down and be! Whether it’s the vast open plains, the sandy…

The Average Day – SoulTrekking

The fire is stoked at daybreak and, as the flames take hold, the all-important billie is set to boil. Coffee starts the day. Before sun-up, each soultrekker finds their private spot, coffee and journal in hand to start their day with meditation and prayer. Each person does it their way – this is a private…

Why Soultrek?

Over the last decade of my life the significant growth and development always seems to be preceded by a time of wrestle.

Soultrekking – What is it?

Ever wondered, ” How did I get here” For most of us, our first 30 years, “just kinda happened”. Yes we make decisions, but do we really? School is not an option…that just happens. Then uni or a trade or work. Yes we make decisions but a lot of these also sort of happen. Chances are if you…

You Can’t Avoid the Desert
