Natural healing/inner journeys



On the inner journeys front, I've:

- Experienced shamanic healing 
-Explored co-creation with nature 
- Discovered the joys of mindfulness in the wild
- Explored my inner genius with an ex-pop singer
-Learned about sacred activism with one of Canada's top filmmakers
- Made stone sculptures by the sea
- Tried slacklining
- Imbibed South American plant spirit medicines (Ayahuasca and San Pedro)
- Gone underground to experience a healing cave (in Austria)
- Tried parahawking, been rebirthed, tackled love addiction, trod shoeless in Britain's first barefoot park     and been a guinea pig for every complementary therapy going...
