'Primitive Freedom' through Walking

Brent McKean has done a huge amount of walking all over the world, from the Inca Trail to the Blue Mountains, easy strolls in nature to incredibly demanding rugged walks of hundreds of km’s, and now he's editor of Australia's only dedicated bushwalking magazine, “Great Walks”.

In this episode he describes what he calls the “primitive freedom” he associates with being out in nature, relaxing back into the rhythms of nature and peace and transformation. He also talks about the importance of stretching our comfort zone and being adventurous, and the deep bonding which can happen quite naturally through shared experiences in nature.

A great listen for seasoned hikers as well as those ‘maybe’ considering it, for parents or grandparents wanting to get kids out into nature more, and simply for anyone wanting to feel inspired by one man’s walking adventures.
