About 2 years ago, I felt the need for space and slowing down. I was inspired by the story of a friend whom each year takes time for herself to walk in the forest alone with the intention of reconnecting to herself.
At that time I wondered and dreamed to create a space for others to go on their own exploration, at their own pace. This is how the Walkabout-now festival idea emerged.
Here are the words I wrote at the time:
For the last two years, I have played with different perspectives and formats to find what could work best.
When I shared the idea with Sarah she jumped on it and then I knew it is time do it.
So here we are now, holding a space for personal exploration and development. We want people that join us, as well as our facilitators to experiment, play, go deep, learn and be present for one another.
We have decided to develop the idea in small iteration, listening to others and inviting those interested to collaborate with us.
My dream is that the first Walkabout-Now Festival will be the beginning of a movement that will see other festival in many wonderful places in the world.
