We live in a time of exceptional challenge in all areas of life. The need for individuals, organisations and nations to move towards greater harmony within themselves, with others and the more than human world has perhaps never been greater. Adventure Education can be a powerful catalyst in this process.

“Virtually all indigenous or native cultures have regarded nature or the universe or Mother Earth as the ultimate teacher. At few points in history has the need to rediscover this teacher been greater. “

Easy Days combines exciting and challenging adventure experiences with facilitated sessions that invite you to explore your own human nature and discover important practices that enables you to live a happy and fulfilled life. We call this ‘essential adventure education’.
THE PROGRAMME AIMS THAT YOU:
• Experience Canyoning, Rock Climbing and the Adventure Trail (Via Ferrata) and the fun and adventure that goes with it
• Develop skills, discover tools and understanding that help you feel deeply satisfied and in harmony with others and nature.
• Feel inspired as an individual and future professional to drive positive social change. We hope to encourage you to look more deeply into life, to keep exploring and to find meaning in the challenges that life brings and begin to discover a stable joy and happiness that is within yourself already.
Easy Day inspires three core values:
Creative Minds …
An appreciation for diverse opinions, believes and challenges as an opportunity to grow in understanding.
Open Hearts …
Experience how well and satisfied you feel when paying attention to your natural sense of being.
Wild Places …
Experience and understand the underlying unity of all life. Exploring wild places can inspire profound discoveries and changes within ourselves.
Every day invites you to experience a different outdoor activity and to work with an over-arching educational theme:
DAY ONE: Adventure Trail – Arriving and creating a Culture of Learning

“Cuando nos damos el tiempo de escuchar a la naturaleza de una forma determinada, nuevas formas del conocimiento emergen.”
As qualified guide and group facilitator I draw on over 25 years of experience and have safely led thousands of people through transformative learning adventures. I am passionate about creating atmospheres and spaces in which people feel at ease, at home and inspired to explore what truly matters to their hearts.
These days I feel most satisfied in my work, if the facilitated process, which often blends nature experiences, conversations and guided meditations, can help participants to become inwardly silent, empty and open. It is here, that we really begin to feel, understand and appreciate the completeness and contentment of our natural state of being. The significance of this experience cannot be overestimated as it reaches into all aspects of our life.
I am founder and director of Easy Day. I hold a Masters degree in Sustainability and Business Responsibility from Ashridge Business School and a BSc in Outdoor Education from Edinburgh University. My family and I live in our beloved Sant Aniol valley in Catalunya, Spain.
Wonder is at the core of my work. As a professional I try to stay close to my own sense of wonder, in order to invite others to inquire and experiment together in the workplace. For me, a sense of wonder is about attention, curiosity and seeing beauty and possibilities in places where that might not be self-evident. But also about taking the time to hear and inquire into each others stories in organisations, as human beings.
I am always searching for those questions and stories that might create movement in a complex change issue. I love to design and facilitate change interventions and leadership programmes, but also to support the development of fellow practitioners through writing and teaching about my practice.
I am a partner at Kessels & Smit The Learning Company and live with my family in Amsterdam.
En esta edición pretendemos cuidar la composición de un grupo diverso y limitado a un máximo de 12 participantes provenientes de distintos con- textos y organizaciones sociales.
If you are interested in participating in the programme, or have further questions, please send an email Javi Gras (see below).
As part of the registration process we will ask you for your CV or LinkedIn profile and we will conduct an online interview to answer any questions you may have and to get to know you a little in order to evaluate your candidacy.
