I’m not in the habit of publishing several Updates in one week, but I’m making an exception today. For today a special episode of the Daring Self-Leadership & The Nature Connection podcast was released in the run-up to #WorldValuesDay on 21 October 2021.

In it, I have a conversation with Paul Ryken who is involved in organizing World Values Day 2021 with a special focus on our connection with Nature.

World Values Day is held every year “to increase the awareness and practice of values around the world”.

When we live aligned with our values, we live aligned with what we believe is good behaviour and what’s important to us.

This year’s theme for #WorldValuesDay is Reconnecting. Reconnecting with ourselves, with others and with the world at large. Part of that last reconnection is, of course, that Nature connection.

I talk with Paul and his partner Sandra about their decision to experience more of life and our amazing planet by living with less stuff, distractions, waste. And how this led them to choose a minimalist lifestyle while also travelling the world.

That’s it for now. You can listen to the episode here.

In the meantime, enjoy a beautiful Autumn weekend.
