体验内容

NOTE: this is a relatively tough walk/scramble that requires 'good strong footing' from you. Steep uphill, steep downhill.

We will meet at Falcon Rock, an adventure centre at the base of the Lady's Slipper, a small mountain halfway between Port Elizabeth and Jeffrey's Bay. From there we will walk/scramble up the mountain on the well-trodden trail. It is an extremely beautiful place, characterized by a unique 'rockiness' that is simultaneously harsh and inviting. The view from the top is spectacular - one can see the ocean to the south, Port Elizabeth to the east, Jeffrey's Bay and beyond to the west, and the inland mountains to the north.

I will act either as tour guide, if that is what the person or group wants from me, or as a facilitator of an 'embedded experience'. By 'embedded experience' I mean that I will spend some time setting the scene for the walk up the mountain. For example, one can simply do the walk with their mind doing what it usually does, or one can cultivate their awareness of certain features of the experience. With my academic expertise and extensive experience in putting theory into practice, I will provide the conceptual tools that allow one to 'be in the experience' in a manner that resonates with the practice of philosophy as a way of life.

The walk is circular, and we will finish at the same place we started, i.e. Falcon Rock's parking area.

I have a PhD in Philosophy, and I have taught the subject (as well as other academic subjects) since 2006. One of my subject specialisms is philosophy as a way of life as written about by Pierre Hadot, a renowned philosopher. Philosophy in this format is something that cannot be contained within the walls of a classroom. Instead, philosophy involves the cultivation of specific ways of looking at the world.

One of the ways in which ancient Greek philosophers cultivated philosophical perception was to concentrate with deep intent on the experience of being part of, and intimately connected with, nature. My academic and teaching background, combined with my deep passion for being in nature in a mindful manner, makes me well suited for providing unique perspectives on the experience of being in the great outdoors.

体验地点

The Lady's Slipper mountain is a beautiful, rocky mountain, covered in indigenous Fynbos (translated as 'fine bush'). It takes about 1 hour to ascend at a gentle pace, and about 50 minutes to descend. The views from the top are spectacular. Steep uphill, steep downhill, some big 'step-ups' and 'step-downs' over rocks.

David is een intelligente en gestudeerde man, die met een ascetische levenshouding , wars van materiële zaken bij zichzelf blijft. We hadden tijdens de schitterende wandeling leuke gesprekken. De wandeling vroeg om een goede en conditionele gesteldheid. Goed schoeisel is aan te raden. Wij hebben genoten.
