    Input for Rewilding Business

    It´s just a name. It is meant to describe a set of practices that can help people with topics specifically tied into "nature", "inner nature", and a level of transformation that includes both ourselves and the planet. As such I do not view it as a clique, as something non-ordinary, or as an...

    Input for Rewilding Business

    For people who love oversight (and myself), I have put "Reasons to ReWild" in a bit of a list. These are great ideas and you have definitely given me some new ones. Thank you for the inspiration so far! Being Grounded: recharging yourself by being in close contact with the Earth for prolonged...

    Input for Rewilding Business

    I think pretty much anyone would go out of business that way haha! My businessplan is more focused on bushcrafting, methods to become more confident by showing people they can withstand natural things etc. I´m not going to post the entire plan on here but you get the idea. No insanity stuff...

    Input for Rewilding Business

    Hi Peregrinos! As some of you may know, I found my calling after the Camino. I´m now resolved to build a business around "ReWilding". ReWilding is about "undomesticating our bodies and minds", and the idea is that people have domesticated themselves to the degree of becoming completely...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    I ended up going to Ireland for a while, not very long though, because of Corona ;-) The experience was very valuable, I was confronted with myself, I learned about frugality and how maybe comfort sometimes is good, and I also learned about being part of someone´s family, me being a complete...

    Post-Camino Callings

    Figured I might update. I´ve enrolled in theology at the university. I encountered a bit of red tape and it might take a little bit longer to admit me - but generally my papers are fine and I hope I can start in September. Unfortunately the hospitalero who tried to convince me to become a...

    I miss you guys

    I haven´t actually met any of you, but I miss you anyway. I hesitated to get the forum patch but the postage was too expensive. Even so you could have easily recognized me. I was the one with the wild hermit look who carried a way-too-long-staff. Whenever I walked past tourists they would...

    Post-Camino Callings

    :D These reactions have made me really cheerful. I´m really happy there is more people here with a similar calling. I would love to combine several things at the same time. I don´t think I could promise to live my entire life in isolation - that´s what I like about friars, how they go out...

    Post-Camino Callings

    Thank you, I agree. I´ve already asked to stay in a monastery for a few days to see whether it would suit me (however those things are interrupted by Corona like everything else!). That sounds interesting Bob. It´s one of the things I might like to do if such an opportunity arises. I speak...

    Post-Camino Callings

    Hi again Peregrinos. It´s always good to return here and know that there is a "Camino World" despite the situation. In January I went abroad to do volunteer work for a while. It was fine but it did not last long. I had kind of overestimated myself as the Camino made me feel like Superman. But...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    I just want to also add also that I do not "hate" where I live. I don´t believe I used that word in either of my posts. I mentioned dislike, but hey there is a lot of maneuvering space between hate and dislike. This is probably a part of it. My parents were not particularly "Dutch". I think...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    I need a bit of time to catch up with the reactions, but this is the news: I´m leaving... :D I got a temp job waiting for me abroad. It´s really exciting and intimidating, well the same exact feeling I had when I left for the Camino. But "the future is calling". Better listen to it.

    question for spiritual pilgrims

    Thanks for your reactions. I have two things to say :-) - I know that it is the human condition to be searching for this state: I know that many camino walkers and not-camino walkers have experienced the same thing, and I have experienced it before walking the camino. But this experience was...

    question for spiritual pilgrims

    These are two separate things though. I did not say there was no pain. There is and was still pain - a ton of it - but the way the pain is experienced is different because again, there is no judgement on it - and so you can allow it to just "be" on its own accord. I agree that frantically...

    question for spiritual pilgrims

    Hi peregrin@s. I´m looking for spiritual pilgrims. In particular, inclination towards Buddhism or similar, or who have practiced meditation. I think spiritually inclined people might understand, or at least not second-guess my experience. And that´s important to me. I achieved a state of...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    This conversation is interesting to me, because it seems as though there is this thought that "running away doesn´t solve anything", I´m sorry if I am misconstructing your words. It´s interesting because this is similar to the conversation pilgrims have prior to leaving for the camino. "Why...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    @simply B Not at all! The reaction was not caused by anything you said :) I view working in quite the same way as you. Although I did think about getting a teaching degree here first, so I can apply for a visa later. In Europe it´s much easier for me to move around. I think this is very spot...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    Martin, other sunshine, my experience of my own country might be different from yours. The "beacon of sanity" is very subjective and your opinion, which I don´t share. Sure there are things to be thankful for here, but for me the negative overwhelms the positive. @simply B: yes! I can relate...

    Ok I´m home, I want to leave.

    Hello Pilgrims. I just returned from the Camino a week ago, and what I feared would happen, happened. I don´t like my country. The rat-race, the hurry... the amount of people who work themselves into a burn-out because it´s "necessary" somehow. I struggled with this before the Camino, but...
