Years ago, I read a moving account of a 40 year old woman facing her fear and joining an Outward Bound expedition. I was SO impressed and thought, “Good on HER… but it sounds like too much for me.” Well, I passed 40 quite sometime ago and now I am jumping in for Iceland, thanks to my husband Peter’s encouragement and the very special experiences we’ve had with long distance hiking and walking together. I’ve been an educator forever and now, in semi-retirement, I am Dean of the Wellbeing Project, a program designed to support the personal inner wellness of seasoned social change leaders around the world. I’m seeing this adventure as an important part of my own wellbeing journey, an extraordinary experience to share with Peter and an exciting opportunity to breathe in some spectacular natural beauty. Seeing the Aurora Borealis is definitely on my bucket list! Peter and I have four wonderful daughters, one of whom had her own life changing OBC experience in her late teens. I plan to use some of her gear for good luck!
