  • Walking in the presence of Awareness
    Natural Awareness, Self-Enquiry, Non-Dualism, Satsang, Advaita

    During a walk in Nature we do some practices that help you cultivate natural awareness by revitalizing the senses and calming the mind. These practices will bring back the mind to the body and the present moment. From there we go on to establish ourselves in the heart. In this "heartspace" the activity of mindfulness is transcended, resulting in a more fluid state of harmonious presence: our natural awareness. Ultimately, through investigation, the universality of this awareness is discovered.

    During the second part of the day we will continue with our investigations into the nature of that awareness or self by having Satsang in Nature (Satsang is a Sanskrit word for “being in the company of good people”). Satsang is where we, together, contemplate questions in relation to self-enquiry and non-dualism (Advaita) that help us discern the universality of awareness or self.

    We will try to organize this event on a regular basis and you are welcome to attend many times as each and every event is unique and has a cumulative effect. When the opportunity arises or if requested, we will also organize this event at other locations.

    Bring your own lunch!

    Duration: Usually the event starts at 10.00 and ends at 16.00.
    Next date & location: September 9th, 2017, 10.00 - 16.00. Gathering at VaraVild.

  • Practices of The Beauty Way
    Discovering the experiential essence through intuitive consciousness, tracking and other Old Way earth living skills.

    On this course you will learn many survival skills, or rather, non-complex living skills! You will also get a sound foundation in the art of aboriginal intuitive holistic tracking, taught in a unique way. More importantly, you will gain experiential insight in how these things are actually and naturally unified in our unfolding existence. They combine and become one, transforming you from a physical survivalist to a spiritual survivalist, from living a life to being life itself.

    For Old Way cultures the purpose of life is to achieve Balance, in a continual cycle of gaining and retaining harmony with the Circle of Life (environment). This is called Living The Beauty Way. Living The Beauty Way requires re-establishing our connection to the natural world, ourselves and each other. In The Beauty Way you will 'become as a question' causing the tracker in you to stir, and in the tracks you will discover the fullness of what you are!

    Humans are the best trackers on this planet and we do it all day in all facets of our lives without being aware of it. Unfortunately, because of all the mental noise and the cloak of personhood, we are not very good at it anymore. Tracking and awareness go hand in hand. Tracking is the foundation of all earth living skills and their practice catalyzes our opening up to the natural flow of unfolding existence.

    Many of the practices inherently are pointers or catalysts for discernment of the self. Tracking, awareness, meditation, fire-making and indeed all aboriginal living skills are all expressions of our true self in the form of naturally flowing beingness. Through these expressions we are life rather than simply living a life. Therefore they have always been imbued with spiritual significance and experience. These practices will help you open up your intuitive consciousness and revive your qualities of perception without judgement of mutually arising and interrelated opposites.

    Ultimately my goal is for you to discover your true self and the way of living life as it unfolds from your heart: the Beauty Way. And, although I love to use the teachings of Nature to bring this about, in the end, my intent is for you to discover that Nature is everywhere, timeless and that it is what you truly are.

    Duration: 7 days.
    Next date & location: 31st of July, 2017 (immediately after the HangOut!) at VaraVild

  • Discovering Hidden Nature
    Re-establishing connection to self and the Earth

    For Old Way cultures the purpose of life is to achieve Balance, in a continual cycle of gaining and retaining harmony with the Circle of Life (environment). This is called Living The Beauty Way. Living The Beauty Way requires re-establishing our connection to the natural world, ourselves and each other. With this natural awareness we can cultivate our personal power. Personal Power leads to action rather than reaction; to gifting rather than taking; to creation rather than destruction; to perceiving rather than judging; to oneness rather than separation. In The Beauty Way you will 'become as a question' causing the tracker in you to stir, and in the tracks you will discover your Hidden Nature!

    Duration: 2 days. (variations can be ordered)

  • Voices of The Track
    Introduction to aboringinal tracking

    Tracking is more than following sign on the ground. The Song of The Track consists of a collection of "voices". If we really want to learn what happened we also must learn to listen to all of them as one. This involves revitalizing our sensory and intuitive capabilities beyond what is the current norm. We also need to become centered in the now and in the Heart. In short we need to reconnect with our ancestral tracking self.

    Duration: 2 days. (variations can be ordered)

  • Nature Awareness
    A Course in Perceiving from the Heart

    This is a seven day workshop aimed to help you (re-)awaken your nature awareness and tracking skills. This course is about how to better observe and experience nature and learning things about yourself. Awareness is not a skill that needs to be acquired. We all have the skill from birth. What you can learn though are techniques and exercises to activate and train it. You will also learn how Awareness is connected to tracking and Earth Living.

    The overriding objective of this course is to help you experience more of the natural world; not with the mind but with the heart! This course is a natural first step on your discovery of the Beauty Way.

    This course can also be taken as a self study course,
    and as a 4 week on-line course.

    Buy the book Nature Awareness - A Course in Perceiving from the Heart from our web shop The Happy Earth Shop.

    Location: VaraVild, Idre, Sweden.
    Duration: 7 days. (variations can be ordered)

  • Survival Tracker
    Professional Tracking

    Delve deeper into the skills and philosophy of the scout. On this course we will study and practice the main pressure release groups and I will introduce you to Energy or Spirit tracking so you will discover the vast potential of intuitive tracking. During this course we will lay the foundations for professional tracking applications such as urban, tactical, SAR and team tracking. Above all,this course is about dirt time! Lots and lots of scenarios and training, both man tracking and animal tracking. During our outings we will of course also address tracker specific survival techniques.

    While this is a course to prepare for professional tracking applications it is still based in the ways of the aboriginal tracker. Awareness and living The Beauty Way are essential to 'become as a question', the core state of any tracker. I can therefore recommend that you take part in the retreat and any of the above workshops to prepare yourself to become a Survival Tracker.

    Location: VaraVild, Idre, Sweden.
    Duration: 7 days.
