Song of the Paddle

The natural environment provides all we need to restore our stillness, balance and peace of mind and there’s no better example of this than paddling ‘solo’ on mirror calm water, in an open canoe, as the morning mist gently rises or as the sun begins to set.

Very few people get to experience moments of pure perfection such as this and I consider myself very fortunate to have been gifted the skills to share this most natural form of total reconnection, to guide people on the journey and to teach them the way to ‘solo’ on rivers, lakes and seas, something I’ve been doing now for more than 30 years.

If you’re looking to completely immerse yourself in the simple beauty of nature and to fully experience a steady state of calm, natural mindfulness then you’ve come to the right place.

Upon leaving the shoreline our mind quickly begins to quieten and readjusts to this timeless world. Whilst listening to the bird song and the gentle lapping of the water, our focus for the journey is on connecting with the natural, subtle song of the paddle. With each stroke becoming more deeply connected with ourselves and more authentically with each other.

Longer journeys provide the opportunity to really get into our flow, to become like water and to fully learn the ancient art of canoeing. We’ll focus on our breathing, our subtle body movements and our focus, all practices that we can then take back into our day to day lives.

All canoeing equipment is provided and we recommend that you come dressed to go hillwalking with boots, trousers, fleece/jumper, waterproofs and a packed lunch.
