Living life is like moving among mountains

Climb Your Mountain WOMEN

When you think about it living life is surprisingly similar to moving among mountains

Along the way, you encounter valleys and summits while the paths you walk are seldom smooth and easy.

The climb to the summits can be challenging, even hard, and it’s easy to forget that it’s not the summits you reach that make the journey worthwhile. It’s the views and the challenges along the way there.

Thankfully there are things you can do to make the journey easier.

You’ve realized there are things you can do to bring back balance into your life; a balance uniquely your own. And you could do with a bit of support.

Why a mountain trek?

Because we humans are as much part of Nature as dogs, birds, lions, fish and yes, even trees and mountains. We are not meant to live a life stuck inside offices and sitting down all the time, disconnected from Nature. We are meant to move and be connected with Nature.

Research has shown that our brains work differently when we move. Parts that are quiet when we sit or lie down become engaged and active.

Walking in Nature, among mountains especially, is a form of active inactivity. As you focus on your physical environment (active) the mind easily wanders (inactive). Walking helps us to think creatively, making finding answers to difficult questions, solving problems and much easier.

We’ll alternate between walking and being. Giving ourselves ample time to not just ‘move through’ but also ‘be in’ our surroundings.

Talent Dynamics Profile Test

This test has been used by over 500,000 leaders across the world and is designed to find out what your natural path is; to find your flow and reclaim your time by doing what you do best.

Without putting anyone in a box it helps you understand yourself, your colleagues, and even your family. It highlights a path specifically for you to grow trust in yourself and from others in you.

You’ll have the opportunity to take the test before the first microschool session.

Reaching your goals

My name is Gerdi Verwoert. I’m a certified professional coach as well as a certified mountain hiking guide who helps busy managers, executives and coaches go from a life taken over by work to a better-balanced life with time for themselves and the things important to them. A life in which they are the self-leader they are meant to be.

Guiding my clients into Nature where they more easily disconnect from their busy lives and reconnect with themselves is an important element in all my coaching programs. You see, I believe that since we are all part of Nature, you can only be connected with yourself when you’re connected with Nature as well.

Nature is my coaching partner, my co-conspirator. She offers us a place to rest, regenerate, play and explore.
