Walking through beautiful countryside, cycling, surfing, gliding or going on a safari are not just simple adventures. They can be an occasion to observe nature, to enter into deeper contact with the natural world around us.
So, whilst exercising our bodies, we are actually renewing those vital links to the planet that we run the risk of losing.
Respect for nature, conservation passes through contact, getting to know, learning to contemplate and above loving and appreciating the gift we have all received in nature and our duty to preserve and pass this on to the future generations.
The quiet time that can also be experienced in these journeys creates space for a deeper contact with ourselves.
