Sometimes we just want to relax take a break, learn something different, go on a safari, go bush, to a retreat or ... possibly even a non typical experience of depriving our self of the usual.
This being the case, then try spending over a fortnight a mile deep down a canyon of rock walls of red, brown, yellow to white colours and a clear blue sky above, on a tribal adventure by river raft, with people you have never met.
Experiencing an adventure deep through the grand Canyon in the US allows thoughts and feelings to be caught up with, plus encounter and interact in a close intimate clan-like setting that over a very short time period, becomes more and more natural, allowing ourselves to shuck off city life and all the attachments of Western civilisation.
Understanding of how a river runs through aeons of time, the politics of water, the pros and cons of dams, of invasive species and native aquatic fish, and know that for many thousands of years the Indians lived in sacred ceremony throughout the area, and now today struggle with the western indulgences that induces diabetes, alcoholism, cigarette smoking and a loss of connection.
Listen to an experienced and well grounded river canyon guide articulate what it is like to support people in doing what they think is impossible and push the boundaries of their being as well as know that you have to do it yourself, but not necessarily alone.
