About it all ...
Perhaps it is fair to say that we are all searching for inspiration to effect change in our lives, in one way or another. But change can be fearful when the outcome may be unknown. This is where nature is invaluable as the wilderness experience can provide us with courage to cross these borders.
To explore this bond, The Elephant Rumble is an authentic and exciting motivational presentation, importing the wildness of Africa, and the magic of elephants, to your jungle, boardroom or corporate event.
The Rumble has been felt across the Atlantic in numerous European boardrooms and corporate forums. Alan was invited to speak at the prestigious TedXAmsterdam event.
The simple principles of living close to the land, which spill over into our daily lives, are bases on our following basic keystones:
As a wilderness guide my livelihood, and at times perhaps even my life, has depended on interpreting signs in the sand. When you follow the tracks of an animal a new world opens. A world of observation, discovery and intuition. As an ancient science (if not the origin of it all), tracking connects us to a deeper understanding of our environment, of ourselves and of others around us, at all levels.
Solitude and silence is very unusual in our modern world, but extremely important. When was the last time you were alone with your thoughts without running from them? How often do you really listen to the world? When we talk we hold the power of speaking, but when we are still we hold the power of listening.
We feel the need of lifelines when entering the bush; spare equipment, heavy backpacks, extra food etc. to connect us to our comfort zones and a sense of security. All this in actual fact does is create a barrier and not break any down, and we become sterilized and separated from the energy around us.
A meaningful wilderness encounter has many challenges, such as possible discomfort, weather conditions or physical hurdles. But perhaps the most challenging of all is facing the fear of the unknown, or letting go. And in our need to be prepared, we often miss the moment. By breaking down personal barriers we realise that boundaries may only exist in our imaginations.
A born and bred South African, Alan has spent his entire adult life living and working as a wilderness guide and tracker. He is well known in the industry for his mellow character, but it’s his steady confidence in handling big game which safari clients remember most fondly.
Numerous clients and students have experienced close-up elephant encounters, and Alan's knowledge of these sentient animals is well known.
