Happy New Year from Adventure Retreat Leader

We wish you all the best in 2012 and beyond.

The Good News: Adventure Retreat Leader is a resolution-free zone. We only ask that you find a little adventure in your life each and every day.

  1. Adventure Can Be Simple: Too often we think of adventure as this big thing we have to plan and put together. Arrangements need to be made, schedules coordinated, time secured, etc. Now that can take the adventure right out of adventure! Adventure can be as simple as just stepping out your door with no plan in mind.
  2. Hang Out With An Adventurer: Do you know someone who has an adventurous nature? Spend some time with them. Adventurers love to lead others into uncharted territory.
  3. Adventure Is An Attitude: Get that and you will find adventure in everything you do.
  4. Go To The Wilds: True, adventure can be found at work, home and even in a good book. But in the wilderness, your senses become more acute. You'll smell, see, hear and feel more. A sun-soaked rock can feel as good as a down-covered bed; a light breeze or a cool lake as good as a full body massage; a campfire more wonderful than turning up the furnace; a field of flowers or just plain old earth more scent-filled than the best perfume. The best place to start with adventure is to let you body sense where all adventure comes from, the wilds.
  5. Move Your Body: You'll see this in most of my top ten lists. Your body knows more than your mind ever will. Hone it.
  6. Be A Child: When you were five, adventure came naturally. What did you love doing at that age? Do it. Yes, this may mean you'll have to get in the sandbox, on a swing, hang from the monkey bars or lead the cat around by a toy at the end of a string. (Hint: Kittens and puppies can teach you a lot about adventure)
  7. Take The Dog For A Walk: Let him or her lead.
  8. When The Directions Say Turn Right, Turn Left
  9. Make Choices In Seconds: Not, hours or days. If you can't decide in a few seconds, then choose not to choose. Let it go as though you never had the choice.
  10. Find a Creek and Follow It: Upstream, downstream, it doesn't matter.
