A Hiking and Coaching Journey to discover what you don’t know you don’t know, open up to possibilities you didn’t see and unleash your power to create your next chapter and enhance your impact in the world
WHY HIKING AND COACHING IN THE MOUTAINS ?
We believe that mountains offer:
- Altitude to see things from a higher level perspective, above the details of the daily life
- Disconnection from the fast, digital and busy world
- Disconnection from our automatic way of thinking
- Reconnection to ourselves at a deeper level, to others with whom we share this journey, to our purpose, and to something bigger than ourselves, whatever that means
- An opportunity to get out of our mental space
- A journey toward the beautiful and the magnificient
- An opportunity to surpass ourselves and build confidence and self-esteem
- A holistic experience: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual
- A beautiful metaphor for the adventurous journey of life, going up and down, requiring efforts and stamina, courage, to deal with the unknown, offering different viewpoints and unexpected surprises.
We believe that being in movement, like hiking, offers the possibility to reconnect to our body, facilitates creativity and generate well-being.
We believe in the power of small groups to practice connection and intimacy at a deeper level than our daily life allows.
And we believe in experiential learning, which enables us to disconnect from our brain, get access to more insights, more possibilities, and anchor the learning at a deeper level. Participants will remember it forever.
We want to go HIGH, literally in altitude, and figuratively by helping you get some elevation from your daily lives, high enough to see the box you are operating in and to create new frames of reference/paradigms.
We want to go DEEP with our coaching, deep into who you are, what you really want, and what’s in the way.
The bottomline : we get to the ESSENTIALS.
WHY WOULD YOU JOIN?
You tell us.
Maybe because you want to take a step back from your life/business to reflect.
Maybe because you want en original way to work on your leadership and the impact you want to have in the word.
Maybe because you can see/feel there is more to your life but can’t really put your finger on it.
Maybe because you are looking for some meaning or purpose.
Maybe because you want to grow, make new connections and get some inspiration from others.
Maybe because you are inspired by the Mountains.
Maybe because you (eventually) want to take some time for yourself.
Maybe you don’t even know but feel drawn to this experience. That’s where it starts to be interesting. Can you practice stepping into the unknown and trust that you will generate exactly the breakthrough you need in the moment.
WHY SHOULDN’T YOU JOIN?
If you are not willing or able to hike several hours per day.
If you are not open-minded and willing to open-up, explore, share, be vulnerable and let yourself be surprised.
If you expect a structured, detailed top-down content program, because all the magic happens in the moment, with the group.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU:
- A beautiful hike in an amazing, magical environment (really !)
- A heart based human adventure
- An ontological, experiental and transformational coaching approach
- Insights on who you are in your essence and who you want to be in this world
- New Possibilities outside of what you already know
- New Connections
- More Power
- More Authenticity
We don’t reveal much of the journey, because:
- It is part of the experience, to step into in the unknown and trust, outside of our usual need to know, manage and control
- A lot of it will happen in the moment, with what the participants will bring and generate
What we promise is a safe space, (dis)(re)connections, elevated conversations, deep explorations, out of the box reflections and ambitious declarations and actions.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
- WHO: change makers, inspired leaders, adventure (internal and external) seekers, “there is more to life” lovers – Max 8 persons
- WHERE: Pyrenees mountains (the place to meet will be communicated later)
- WHEN: Thursday October 6th to Sunday October 9th. We believe this is the minimum to really disconnect and access a deeper place and have more impactful results
- WHAT: hiking equipment (especially hiking shoes) and all weather protection (sun, rain, cold), snacks for 4 days and water reusable bottles to fill-in, a sleeping bag.
- I don’t have time
We get it – AND, what if that was exactly the reason why you should come?
Evan’s meditation teacher once told him: “when people tell me that they are too busy and they don’t have time to meditate for 30min a day, I tell them “you are right, you shouldn’t meditate for 30min … you should meditate for 1h”
- I don’t know if the other people will be a good fit
We will have conversations with every participant to make sure they are a good fit for this experience. Those who will join probably share a sense of adventure, loving the outdoors, a willingness to meet new people and learn from them, to grow personally and professionally. And …. In life, we don’t always choose who will be on our path, so it is also a great way to practice being with this.
