Personal Preparation

RECOMMENDED READING

A journey begins with a single step, so the ancient mantra goes — or in this case, with a single book (or two, or three...) 

Add reading as part of your hike or retreat preparation. This will help a great deal in getting your mind in the right place, and setting you up for the process work that will take place during your hike or retreat.

You will see a lot of examples of Stoic wisdom below, as well as some recommendations from Derek Sivers, who had incredible success with CDBaby, and has some generally great ideas about life and personal happiness

PERSONAL WORKBOOK & JOURNALLING

Personal reflection enables us to process and make meaning of all of the great (and not so great) learning and life experiences we’ve had.

 

Everyone stands to gain from engaging in some type of reflection.

We recommend using an app like 5 minute journal - easy to use, always accessible on your phone -  just spend a few minutes jotting down the things you're most grateful for every day or lessons you've learned.

 

Our workbook will be used before, during and after our hikes and retreats, and will be handed out at the start of the event.
