First and foremost I want to give gratitude to this planet. Without her sustenance and beauty, I would not be doing this.
I walk the talk. Almost everything I eat I have gathered, hunted or fished. I live in a tipi in the bush and sleep on a bed I made from materials sourced within 20 metres. I get around by walking, and for longer distances I generally use my bike. But this hasn’t always been the case. In the past I lived in a city, in a flat with central heating. So I am able to bridge the worlds between the “primitive” and modern, and meet everybody where they are at on their own journey of nature connection.
Nature connection is transformative. Since many years now I have been supporting people in actively creating their lives.
What I am showing folk: being in nature is high-level fun and surprisingly easy. Sure there are things that we need to know and practice to look after ourselves, but if we know the basics we can get out there and connect with nature in a deep and joyful way, also with ourselves and anyone who might be with us.
I deeply care for this planet and believe that if we live more simply, we can live healthier, happier and above all, preserve our beautiful habitat.
What motivates you to connect with nature?
