Join me this June, 2017 for a hiking & writing workshop in Italy and France. One week on these trails is the adventure of a lifetime, with a story to tell forever.
ABOUT. It’s a meme we all know now. It’s the button you click to find out who’s behind a website or a company or an idea. It defines your core characteristics, your essential qualities, what motivates you, what you’re passionate about, and why we want to know you. It’s the modern word for Bio. What does yours say?
WALKABOUT. A walkabout is a traditional Aboriginal rite of passage, a journey undertaken on foot by aboriginal youth who leaves society for a time to face themselves in Nature, to connect with the land, and to take time out for healing and spiritual awakening. It is a journey to discover yourself and identify your true contribution to the world.
WalkABOUT Writing Workshop: Walk Out Your Story on the Trail is a rare opportunity in a noisy, demanding world to take time out and away. For one week in June, leave your everyday life to reconnect with yourself and find new words to express who you are and what you stand for in the world. No matter what else you do – your work, your family, your legacy – you are at the center of it all. Your life is your most creative endeavor.
Who is this course designed for?
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a business owner, an artist or a person in transition, your uniqueness is in your story. Personal or professional it’s the essence of your message to the world, so it needs to be clear. Whether your intention is to re-envision your business brand or reconnect with your creative center, this workshop will give you the opportunity to challenge your limits, think in new ways and come home with a story on paper.
How do you know if this course is for you?
We know this course is not for everyone. So we’re looking for a few serious people ready to challenge themselves in new ways.

“NOT ALL WHO WANDER ARE LOST.”

Fundamentally, you know who you are and how you need to live. The pace and noise of modern life make it difficult to hear your inner voice and give it expression. But these fundamental processes are essential to a fulfilling human life. Taking time out is essential.
We all have valuable stories within us. And we struggle to express them because Life gets in the way. If you’re ready to tell the story you’ve never managed to tell for whatever reason, if you are ready to challenge yourself in new ways to discover the uniqueness within you, if you are ready for a breakthrough in any area of your life, then contact us for an interview to see if this program is right for you.
