    #24 In conversation with Adam + Laura

    #24 In conversation with Adam + Laura

    Welcome to Episode #24. Today we're joined by the magical and deliberate Adam + Laura

    Adam and Laura are the couple that make up Yellow Matilda, an ever evolving story that started with a serious case of Adventure Ache and has lead them on a journey through van life, a spontaneous elopement, a 600 mile walk and most recently the prospect of living on a 31 ft sail boat.

    Adam and Laura are a pair of self proclaimed ‘multi-potentialites’, Adam born in England despite the curious Canadian twang; a professional chef, expedition leader, collector of outdoor qualifications and newly qualified yoga teacher. Laura, born in Scotland, an artist and ‘recovering graphic designer’ and yoga teacher.

    They have a dog named Angus who join them on all their pursuits.

    Our conversation with the Wild reveals two individuals who together have developed a deeper commitment to self realisation & overcoming limiting beliefs about themselves. Time spent on water navigating the currents of life have taught Adam that he can’t always plan and control life’s outcomes. The wild ocean is his teacher. Laura tells us that she desires more spontaneity and fun. She needs to see more sunsets and sunrises in her life. Unlocking her creativity and being the artist is her gift to fully claim.

    Together they have explored something called transcendental meditation which is a practice that helps them feel grounded. Their gift to us is that life should be lived more slowly and in connection with nature now, not later. They seek to be more compassionate and kind to others and the planet. Their new wild adventure on a sail boat with an electric engine, is both a great adventure, but also more time to listen, to journey within and to live sustainably with the elements

    We hope you enjoy this insightful chat x

    #23. In conversation with Cormac Davey

    #23. In conversation with Cormac Davey

    Welcome back! It's season three and we're starting this season with a special episode packed with humanity and wisdom.

    In today's show Josh hosts The Living Project's very own Cormac Davey. The resulting conversation shines a light on Cormac's colourful and not a little bit spiritual journey from his birth in Northern Ireland, to his home now at Basecamp in Swindon with his wife Carrie. (There were life stops along the way in Ecuador, Lesotho and Sri Lanka to name a few!)

    Cormac opens up about significant difficulty he's faced in his life and how he made sense of those things and moved forwards, and he shares his own connection with the Wild - how he finds his water, earth, fire and air.

    Cormac's passionate about the issue of equality (or more the lack of it) in the world and from his experience working in international development, and his own personal experience he shares insight into issues he's passionate about and seeking to contribute to now - namely; the climate crisis,  and more locally - private land ownership and the potential criminalisation of trespass.

    Cormac's name in Gaelic means Raven - a symbol of wisdom and this conversation is an inspirational and brave opening up into Cormac's experience on his journey so far, where he finds himself now, and where he's looking. It's packed with wisdom that we hope will trigger thoughts, learnings and reflections within you. It's a magical testimony of the now for the Raven who is Cormac Davey.

    Thank you for joining us - we hope you enjoy it, and would love to hear your thoughts.

    Loads of love, Us x

    #22 Season 2: In Reflection

    Today's episode is the last of season 2. And what a season it's been...

    In today's show we reflect on the magic moments and key learnings we were gifted by our courageous guests throughout the season.

    We also answer a couple of powerful questions posed by our listeners. The questions we answer are: What has been a game changer for you this year? and, How has you relationship with the wild changed/not changed over the last ten years? We loved exploring these questions together.

    Finally we introduce our plans for season three which begins in January 2021, and some exciting events we've launched and are looking forward to  sharing.

    #21 In conversation with Peter Cox

    Hello and welcome to today's episode. Today we have an inspirational conversation with Peter Cox. 

    Peter speaks to us from his home in South London. He tells us about growing up in East London, yet finding his sense of belonging and self in the mountains of Snowdonia as a teenager.

    From this first experience Peter went onto achieve first winter ascents in the Karakorum and the Himalayas, and found. himself deeply moved by the power of the wild, and the communities he learned from along the way.

    Swapping mountaineering for parenthood Peter has gone on to lead more than 50 youth development expeditions around the world, as well as live a family life committed to exploration of people and place all around the world.

    Peter. tells us that his journey, and recent experience of Covid-19 (he spoke to us a day after his weekly plasma donation to the NHS) has instilled in him an awareness of the impermanence of life, and a commitment to the now.

    This is a truly special conversation with a truly special, warm, generous and humble human x enjoy x

    #20 In conversation with Geoff Payne

    Thanks for joining us again. Today we have an inspirational conversation with Geoff Payne. 

    Geoff's spent his life connected with Air, not only through his love of gliding, but through his 50 year career working on land planning around the World. Geoff shares his learnings about our need to work with nature and re-connect with community values if we are to live a healthy future.

    Speaking to us from his multi-generational home in Ealing, London, UK Geoff shares his wisdom, his journey, and a strength of independence that has seen him challenge the World Bank's approach to individualism and now, during lockdown write a book for the future based on his lifetime of experience with humans and the wild.

    This conversation was a privilege to be involved in. You can find out more about Geoff and his work here: http://newgpa.org.uk

    #19 In conversation with Viv + Jason Day

    This episode is a first for us. Today we have a special conversation with a couple committed to living life with the wild.

    Speaking to us from a cabin on the coast of Norway where they spend time every year working as caretakers for a rural cabin-hotel, Viv + Jason tell us about starting their life together on a narrow boat, executing their dream of leaving the corporate world, moving into a van to explore more mountains, and winding up starting their own guiding company in the French Alps, https://www.daysawayadventures.com

    Chatting with a couple, a team, we explore what the wild means to them each individually, and how they've built the life they lead now together to satisfy their joint dreams, as well their own. Viv speaks to us about the healing power of the mountains, and Jason shares the learnings the mountains have given him, importantly - persistence and focusing on exactly what is in front of you with a faith that by doing this the future will work itself out.

    If you're in Morzine anytime and want to explore the mountains (in the snow or sun) look up Viv + Jason at DaysAway Adventures - two more passionate, warm and enthusiastic guides you could not hope to meet.

    Viv + Jason are on Insta @daysawayadventures (https://www.instagram.com/daysawayadventures/)

    This was a fun chat.

    We hope you enjoy it x
