Walk the rhythm of the earth
There is an old Masaï saying that inspired Mindful Adventure to this unique 14-day hiking and camping safari in Tanzania for men from all over the world:
Only a wise man can dance the melody of the Earth
Only a man with integrity who respects himself and others, a man that is loving, trustworthy and tolerant, will be able to enjoy his life on Earth to the max.
Trainers Bart Wiegers or Ralph Nelissen from the Netherlands are taking you along an adventurous ‘inner’ journey to that source that is bubbling up the beautiful potential to mankind and manhood: wisdom, love, integrity, passion, trust and companionship, originated from a deeper relaxation. Both men walk almost the same path, share the same mission but bring in their own unique approach.
Vision Quest or male archetypes
Bart Wiegers offers besides a 6-day hike a mini Vision Quest (1 day). A Vision Quest is an intensive stay in nature: alone, without food, shelter and distraction. Ralph Nelissen will walk for 7 days. Every day will represent one male archetype to connect with: wild man; lover; warrior; jester; magician; wise man and king.
Raymond Zijdemans was joining in September 2018 and expressed his experience like this:
“Wow”! This adventure was like a boys dream. Nine days ago we walked as strangers into the wild nature of Africa. 7 days, 7 men, 7 missions, 7 different paths, 7 walking days. And yet we walked the same path. A path of vulnerability, development, finding yourself, discover your masculinity. Just us and the raw nature in Africa. Without wifi, without bullshit from home, without distractions. Just me and my process.
And it was magic! I have never ever experienced something like this. We went into ourselves and with each other so deeply. Everybody has found his answers. Everybody has found the key to his treasure. What beautiful mirrors we were for each other and there was so much familiarity. It felt like brotherhood”.
