    Episode 150 — ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Episode 150 — ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Of Iceland; Experience!

    It is too easy to do the easiest thing and to just follow the crowd. It is too easy to do things superficially. Life, travel and training are meant to be fully lived and experienced.

    Episode 149 - ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Of Iceland; Reconciliation And Finding Your Own Path

    Reconciliation is all about making peace between the relationships that once were and still remain. The same goes for our relationship with our own selves. We all have a story within us that is epic. Learning about ourselves changes everything.

    Episode 148 - ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Of Iceland; Learning to be Comfortable in the Uncomfortable

    Whether it is travel off the beaten path, climbing a mountain or volcano or maybe starting a meditation or workout program, doing the things on the border or outside of what makes us comfortable can change everything. Our lives shouldn’t be about living for the couch but all about living a life that matters.

    Episode 147 - ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Of Iceland; Learning To Be An Ambassador Of Your Ancestors

    Episode 147 - ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Of Iceland; Learning To Be An Ambassador Of Your Ancestors

    When we stop and think about the past and all those people who have lived lives to pass on the life you have right now it makes us wonder what happened, what they endured and experienced. Becoming and ambassador of your ancestors means looking into the stories, the myths, legends, religions and culture that was so important to them for eons. When you embrace this you start to see your world and your place in it much differently. This is what training is about; digging deeper and learning from it all.

    Episode 146 — ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons Of Iceland; Embracing The Cold Plunge

    After a dip in a frigid Icelandic lake I have gone from being someone who hates the cold to taking a cold plunge every morning. What is even better is that I have seen a huge difference in how I feel as a result. Experts are saying dipping in water that is less than 15 C can have profound positive impacts on our health.

    Episode 145 — ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons of Iceland and the Human Condition

    Episode 145 — ‘Walk With Me’: Lessons of Iceland and the Human Condition

    Iceland was once a heavily forested place but it was victim of deforestation when it was first settled. There is a lot of valuable lessons to be learned about life and how or why we train in that. Nobody intentionally made Iceland virtually void of trees and everything that results from that and in the same way most of us don’t really realize the mistakes we make when we are living our lives. What we need to do though is understand that we are all humans and all make mistakes, judge ourselves and others and live in duality. Now is the time for our planet to start to see things differently and learn.

Awesome

Hey!

I have been truly inspired by and enjoyed this pod cast! Each episode has allowed me to get inside the head of a man who has spent his life seriously training and reflecting in the
Martial Arts.

I am looking forward to picking up a copy of your books :)

Thank you
