Dare To Be HERD*

All Inclusive 3 Day Trek in Nature

From 17-20 October 2019 we trekked over the cliffs of Cornwall

Exposed to, but one with the elements and the cycles of Nature, we walked a stretch of the South West Coastal Path in Cornwall.
(*No, that’s not a typo!)

Jo Courtney was one of the coaches on this adventure.

But before we started out, like others who want to join in a Dare Greatly Experience, Jo felt she wasn’t particularly fit and was actually a bit daunted by the thought of having to walk up and down cliffs for not just one, but three days.

So it was with a bit of trepidation that she started walking on the first day of this 3 day trek. So …

How did she look back on that experience at the start of the second day?


Standing on a cliff, the wind rustling your hair and the smell of the salt ocean filling your nostrils you look out over the Atlantic. Far below you can just make out some seals resting on the rocks. Seagulls cry out over overhead.

You feel so much lighter, relaxed, more in flow than when you arrived in Newquay to take part in this adventure. A sudden realisation hits you: you haven’t once thought about your to-do list or anything else that’s been causing you stress. As if you’ve left it all by the trail side.

If you want to feel the wind in your hair and enjoy amazing scenery as well as have the time to de-stress and refocus the direction of your life – then join us for 3 amazing life-changing days.

Dare Greatly Coaching meets Inner Synergy to lead a small group of 8 on a 3 day nature and coaching trek.

Find your natural flow out in the elements:

  • Discover your own pace
  • Take up your own space
  • Gain clarity on life questions
  • See clearness within the mind
  • Connect with what’s truly important
  • Breathe and just BE

Jo and I will provide gentle facilitation, exercises and intuitive guidance. So other than booking, navigating your way to Cornwall (and some walking) – there is nothing to think about or do!

This is an ALL inclusive BEing experience with 2 very skilled coaches, each bringing in their own particular expertise.  Jo and I have got it, and we’ve got you.

  • How Gerdi wove our core values and beliefs into old values that we’ve adopted and would like to leave behind by being in nature was seamless and beautiful. My favourite part of the day was being taken into Richmond Park with Gerdi’s slow instructions as we walked and shed the old, to absorb what was coming into our experience was magic. [...] Gerdi creates the space in nature to step out of the ‘busy’ of life so we can slow down, breathe and let whatever’s been waiting in the wings for our stillness to arrive with clarity. Now I can see how being in the mountains of Austria with Gerdi is the perfect journey to shed the old clutter and step into what we want to create rather than going round and round the hamster wheel of busy. Thank you Gerdi!

About Us

Gerdi Verwoert

Gerdi Verwoert

I’m a former consultant, project and facilities manager with 20+ years of experience in the corporate and consultancy world. After years of working hard in a career in which I was successful but unhappy, I found myself in the deep and dark ravine of a major burnout.

That was the start of my own journey to re-ignite the vision I had for my life.

Now I guide people who are visionaries, creatives and changemakers in life, business or both or those who need to adjust their priorities and values into quiet, expansive mountains. There I help them reclaim their Identity, regain Clarity and become Empowered once more as they Re-Ignite Their Vision.

The mountains are a magical place; uniquely suited to help us to slow down, be present and find the quiet needed for inspiration, creativity and rejuvenation.

There I help you ‘just BE’ as you discover fresh perspectives, new horizons and an abundance of opportunities as what you thought is important fades away and get back on the trail to realising Your Vision for life, business or both!

I’d like to say that I am the founder of the Inner Synergy System but in fact, it found me.

It’s been over 20 years in the making and began when I was living and working in London. At the time I thought I was happy but in reality I wasn’t connected to my life, it was as if I was living each day through clingfilm.

Sitting on the tube one day my body gave me a sharp slap around the face that made me sit up and listen and from that moment on a series of learning began!!!!

Coming back to myself, and life, was quite something. Everything I believed to be true came up to be questioned. Was it comfortable no? Did I feel out of my depth and completely lost most of the time – yes! But something spurred me on and looking back I wouldn’t change a minute.

The system and I continue to evolve together and we welcome anyone who wishes to join in.
