Tracking & The Meaning of Life

Tracking & The Meaning of Life

Tracking may be the origins of the scientific method, it was the beginning of deductive reasoning – the art form of applying meaning

The principles of tracking should also be applied to your life – constantly look for and acknowledge information that attunes you with your inner self.

The successful art form of tracking naturally creates safety, excellent trackers can convey presence through non-verbal communication with the animals, and vice versa

Lessons from 40 Days in a Tree

Lessons from 40 Days in a Tree

Where your attention goes, your life goes. When you put your attention on living things, there’s more aliveness in your life.

Spending time in a single spot in nature becomes deeply personal. You become attuned and orientated with the patterns and interlocking intelligence within nature

True fear is a rare experience in modern life

Boyd details a treacherous storm he had to embrace and was overwhelmed with humility and an understanding of the fragility of life.

Ubuntu Philosophy

Ubuntu – the universal bond shared across humanity, translated as “I am because we are”

The western world often is misguided in its search for meaning, associating meaning by comparison. If you grow up in Africa or in nature, you associate meaning through relation. You learn about yourself through your encounters with the world.

Sometimes you have to let go of your rational consciousness and let nature take you to a place you can’t go on your own

Boyd describes an encounter with a leopard where he felt this overwhelming sense of connection

Trauma & Healing

A person who is dealing with trauma has a reduction of options. You’re frozen – traumatized people often resort to retreating and isolating

Ceremony spaces are healing opportunities: AA, sweat lodges, shared plant medicine experiences. Helps you understand and openly share your traumas.

These experiences can alter your personal narrative, viewing the trauma from a new perspective.

Boyd struggled with immense trauma from a crocodile attack, he describes a sweat lodge experience where he passed out and thought he was dying but the guide assured him: you’re not dying brother, you’re just being born

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
