Jason Lewis

Jason Lewis is an award-winning author, explorer, and sustainability advocate. He is recognized by Guinness World Records as the first person to circumnavigate the Earth by human power—without using motors or sails. He walked, cycled, and inline skated five continents, and kayaked, swam, rowed, and pedalled a boat across the rivers, seas, and oceans. Taking thirteen years to complete, the 46,505-mile journey was hailed “the last great first for circumnavigation” by the London Sunday Times.

 

Andy McGeeney

Andy McGeeney is an ecotherapist. He has a background in psychology, counselling, training and development, wildlife photography and conservation.

He has just had his latest book, With Nature in Mind: the manual of ecotherapy for mental health professionals, published by Jessica Kingsley. To find out more go to http://www.andymcgeeney.com

Ecotherapy is much more than a walk in the woods. The invitation is to spend time outdoors with the intention of creating a deeper connection to Nature and in the process increase our sense of well-being. Ecotherapy uses specific techniques to enhance well-being. In the workshop sessions you will experience some of the ecotherapy activities I do with my clients and receive the positive benefits for yourself.

In my talk I will explore humanity’s relationship with the natural world, our elemental deep connection, the ecological self. Current explanations and research evidence, relating to the positive effects nature has on us and its role in healing, will be explored. Some suggestions for a way forward into the future are going to be offered based on a mindful connection to nature.

Testimonials of Emma’s class:

“Emma is so funny. She leads her Ecstatic Awakening Dance Class with a huge sense of humor and happiness. During the class, I felt secure and she gave simple and clear recommendations. The process is amazing and very easy to follow. The music was very good and I enjoyed very much the dance and specially the visualisation. After the session, I was relaxed, and happy. People are really lovely. I warmly recommend Emma and her Ecstatic Awakening Dance Class.” – Orriane Corman

“I love the ecstatic awakening dance with Emma! It is an amazing opportunity to go on a journey into your inner self, connecting with  your body, mind and soul and coming back from it happier, lighter, wiser, more aware of the beautiful connection we hold with the nature and other people. Can be life changing! Highly recommend it :-)” -Joanna Tyszczuk 


“I love to move and shake and dance, Emma’s class is a great place to do this, very safe space to get crazy and be still.  I feel free and excited after a good shake…….I live  and work in a very main stream area, so it great to share my dance at Emma’s class. One word……AMAZING ” – Peter Swift


“Emma’s passion to gently but surely bring people’s awareness to their beauty, their freedom, their own joy in life shines brightly from her. I feel safe, held, inspired and able to really dive in to the dance with Emma and always learn a lot from her classes. The dance shows me where I’m at, where my self-love needs to go, where I need to drop things that trouble me… Emma always brings a new aspect to each class that allows us to freely explore and discover what we need to. I am eternally grateful to have found Emma and the dance.” – Ruth Lawson

“So good it made my cry.” Lottie

“I am a sannyasin of Osho so it’s been like being home.” Lahar Fornaro

“Really energized. Best birthday present ever.” Emily Oran

Taking thirteen years to complete, the 46,505-mile journey was hailed “the last great first for circumnavigation” by the London Sunday Times.

Adventure is about much more than just records or firsts for Jason. Visiting more than 900 schools in 37 countries to date, involving thousands of students in a variety of programmes in conjunction with UNESCO’s Associated Schools Program Network, he uses human-powered journeys to promote world citizenship, zero carbon emission travel, and awareness of individual lifestyle choices on the health of the planet. In addition, tens of thousands of dollars have been raised through his 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for humanitarian causes — orphanages such as The Hope Orphanage in East Timor, and hospices for people living with HIV and AIDS (Rumah Solehah, Kuala Lumpur; Father Joe’s Mercy Centre, Bangkok).

BOOKS & AWARDS
A frequent contributor to outdoor magazines (Men’s Fitness, Sports Illustrated, Outside Magazine, Geographical) and travel books (Chicken Soup for the Traveler’s Soul, HCI, 2002; Flightless, Incredible Journeys Without Leaving the Ground, Lonely Planet, 2008; The Modern Explorers, Thames & Hudson, 2013), Jason is the author of The Expedition trilogy (BillyFish Books, 2012/13/16): Dark Waters*The Seed Buried Deep**, and To The Brink.

*WINNER of the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award & Eric Hoffer Award. **ForeWord Reviews’ Book of the Year.
