For our first Share Your Story of 2019 we’ll be hearing the stories of four individuals who have found getting into nature, and the wild, to be life-giving, both for themselves and others. Living in a city, it can be easy to lose sight of nature, seasons, the wild and adventure. And yet there’s something deeply human about connecting with the natural world around us - it’s grounding.
As a society we’re more stressed out and depressed than ever, and while nature is not a silver bullet, our four speakers will share their experiences of how their connection to the natural world has helped their sense of self and wellbeing. For further info on our speakers, see the snippets below.
Each speaker will have 15-20 minutes to share their story - either all of it, or part of it. And as per usual for Share Your Story, each speaker is encouraged not just to bring the shiny ‘best self’ but all of themselves, including the challenges and hard bits.
Our hope is that you’ll go away encouraged and inspired (and perhaps challenged too), and ready to go away and live a good story yourself.
Doors will open at 7pm, with the first speaker sharing around 7.20pm. We’ll have a break in the middle, and be finished by 9.30pm.
Following on from November’s sold out evening around vulnerability and mental health, we’re expecting this to be another popular event. We suggest buying your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
SPEAKER BIOs (coming soon where blank)
Kim Slade - Adventure has always been a part of my life. From being a feral child at "hippy festivals" to more recently using adventure in a van as therapy for my mental health during a very troubled time. My dream of creating the world's most awesome adventure company has been a rough ride since I quit my job 5 years ago. I'll be sharing my journey through all of this on the evening.
Emma Houldsworth -
Sandra Chitty - Following years of work helping others and caring for her children, Sandra experienced a time of struggling with her mental health and anxiety. At this point and as part of her response to this experience, Sandra got a dog, Jess, which has meant lots of getting out walking in nature. This has become a vital daily practice for her and something that Sandra has been able to share with other women, to help them with their own personal journeys.
