Attention Heart-Centred Entrepreneurs and Visionary Business Leaders:
From the desk of Julia Felton:
Out in the African Bush you will re-connect with nature so that you can rediscover your own leadership power . The power that lies deep within YOU and that can drive YOU forward whilst also unconsciously sabotaging YOUR success.
Working with horses and the laws of nature YOU will be able to identify your own natural leadership strengths and how you can apply these to your life and business
Harnessing nature’s natural energies you will connect to your intuition, find your authentic self, get grounded and become present and mindful to all that surrounds YOU, because leadership is all about who you need to BE in 2013 to be successful and have the impact that you want to have in the world.
What limiting BEliefs do you need to let go of? What BEhaviors do you need to adopt to set you up for greater success? The key factor that shapes your identity is your Environment, so I was inspired to create this unique once-in-a-lifetime VIP for eight remarkable women……….and you are invited!
I first travelled to Africa to celebrate my 30th birthday. I’ve travelled across the world but never experienced the magic that can happen when you get out of the hussle and bussle of daily life and get a chance to get really connected to the natural world around you.
To be honest on that first trip I went extensively to challenge myself. I signed up for a two week overland trip throughout Kenya and Tanzania travelling on an overland bus and camping out in the wilds. Now anyone that knows me would tell you that I appreciate the finer things in life (I’m a bit of a hairdryer girl) so camping was way out of my comfort zone. I think I had only been camping once before and that was as a Brownie!!. The prospect of pitching a tent every night and joining a group of people that I didn’t know was pretty scary, but I knew that if I was to grow I needed to step out of my comfort zone and as Susan Jeffers notes “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway”.
It was an amazing experience and something shifted in me, I fell in love with the natural beauty of the place and the fabulous animals that we encountered in the Masai Mara and Serengeti. I was hooked.
In 2004 I returned and spent a fabulous month travelling overland from Cape Town to Victoria Falls. During this trip I discovered more about myself and begun to realise that I needed to take responsibility for my life if I was to lead the life that I wanted. It was during this trip that the first idea of taking a sabbatical from work arose and 12 months later I told my boss that I was taking a year out.
Luckily the company that I worked for encouraged sabbaticals and for me it could not have come at a more opportune time. I was virtually burnt out from being on the corporate hamster wheel, my health was suffering and my personal relationships were in tatters. I jumped ship for nearly a year and spent six months in Colorado rescuing horses and then six months in Africa being a tourist, volunteering at an elephant sanctuary and horse rescue.
To my amazement I discovered that I loved the simple life of living in the bush. There was something so liberating about all your possessions just being in a ruck sack. Freed from the materialism of life I found that I was freer than I had ever been in my life. I was fascinated by the beauty of the natural surroundings and the laws of nature. Everything had a role and purpose and collectively and symbiotically worked together to create an environment in perfect harmony. If only people could live like that.
My curiosity was aroused to learn more and so I enrolled in a two month programme to learn all I could about the African Bush.
Living in the bush I learnt all about the uses of the different plants and shrubs that surrounded us and how the Bush Men used different plants for different medicinal purposes. (This is what peeked my interest in Zoopharmacognosy and working with horses using natural self selection techniques). I learnt all about the animals – reptiles, mammals, birds – and how the different ecosystems worked. I was incredulous to see how everything was inter-connected and in perfect balance. You see nature is always in balance, and yet we struggle in our own lives to achieve this. At the end of the two months I took my examinations and became a level one qualified safari guide (not a lot of people know that!). And one of the reasons I did this was because I was woefully aware that I was going through life not being present and paying attention to what was happening around me. Trust me, being in the bush surrounded by wild animals means you really have to pay attention to what is going on, or else your safety could be compromised.
This programme is perfect for you if:
