Abruzzo: nearby, peaceful, rewilding, regenerative and full of close friends…. See what passes by this tree in one year. If you want to explore, let me know! I have guided a couple of groups through this area. Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo: One of my favourite places on Earth ;o) See also Wild hart trail 2
Becoming a more open and sensitive person is wonderful but can also be quite a challenge. You can never fully process the ever growing flow of information. At the risk of developing unhealthy overactive behaviour and/or a passive low energy attitude. Both affecting my sense of well being.
I am therefor sometimes tempted to reduce the flow of information by moving (permanently) to a place where the pace is more adapted to our state of evolution. Populated by a limited number of people that are satisfied with what is (a blue zone). This is however not easy as it means disconnecting ourselves from our complicated but ‘native’ environment. For me it feels therefore more healthy and sustainable to…
Each trail is a totally new and wonderful experience. The combination of animals, vegetation, weather and people is never the same and has it’s own energy, dynamics and discoveries. Trying not to replicate the experience of the previous (successful) trail used to be quite a challenge for me. This was not good for the group and not not good for me aswel. Glad to report that I have finally been able to leave that behind me (although the group was a ‘challenge’ due the great diversity in life experience and physical condition)!
Back from first NL Healthcare Wild Hart trip in the Apennines close to Pescaserolli. About 35% of the province of Abruzzo is left to rewild itself. Result is a magnificent area where you can feel that is the nature is gaining strength on many dimensions.
Core of the NLHC program was build on this to rewild our own senses including our harts (as part of a broader culture transformation program) by spending slow time in this area. Even spotted this wild bear on my first morning walk ;o) Also spotted quite a few fresh wolf tracks.
