“A journey with beautiful faraways, incisive proximity and deep insights”
“An adventurous safari on foot in Africa, the origin of mankind. The dream of every boy in the man isn’t it? And which man gives space to the boy? I did for sure. Three times in a row I heard about this safari by coincidence. Three times I thought ‘wow that is cool, I would like to do that!’. Two times I also thought, ‘oh, that is a lot of money, and then without my wife… no I won’t do it’. The third time it was different. I had to do it from the boy within myself, adventure was calling. And the boy was allowed to come along, he had to stay inside for such a long time.
And what an adventure it was; campfires, plains, Masaï, dryness, dust, silence, primitive, warriors, forgo, compressed energy, vulcans, emotion, clear nights. Unfamiliar men became comrades. And apart from that all the animals and wonders of nature on the way. But also; meditations, yoga and sharings. That was fairly new to me but it gave such en extra dimension. And all of that in such a setting.
To describe the intensity, the contrasts, the small and the magnificence, words simply fall short. What I do want to share is what it brought me; personal leadership as human and man and a more intense relationship with my wife. The talks with the trainers and comrades, Tanzania, the Masaï, they all contributed in their own unique way. I end with a powerfull and loving Aho. Thank you Mindful Adventure and Tanzania for seeing the need for this and for making it possible”.
