What you'll do
Each river is its own Lady with its own story and quality it brings into the world. Our Kamniška Bistrica is a sacred river born deep from magnificent Alps. Born in 3 spring she is 33 km long and on the end of her way she entertains with 2 other rivers, forming trinity again. A crystal clear mountain river with its springs being renowned for their high quality! Come on a River Story Ritual - a journey with Špela Kaplja, I am a writer and storyteller for Nature. I have researched rivers and listened to their stories, but Kamniška Bistrica was the first to share her story to me. That has changed my life and taught me grately so I am much inspired to share her deep wisdom with you. On this journey we will visit all 3 spring and famous gorge Predaselj (all walking distance). Listening to stories, tasting the spring water, doing meditative exercises and deep play will help us sense the true quality of the river and awaken it in ourselves! The walk itself is a light walk, but there are some steep areas which can get slippery due to the closeness of the water, so bear in mind that comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
I am Špela Kaplja, my surname in slovene meaning "drop". As co-founder of Society for Deep Ecology Terra Anima, I am one of 3 ladies who have built a soul sanctuary which became a home for us and animals and an art centre for deep ecology. I was a tour guide, guiding to different countries but found my happy when I became a local tour guide in Kamnik. My favourite tour was to Kamniška Bistrica and this is when our connection developed. Later when I started on my writing and storytelling for Nature path, it grew stronger. My first focus were rivers. I lisened to rivers, Kamniška Bistrica especially, sitting there, in my dreams and in researching local myths and legends, learning about her wisdom. That changed my life and this is why I wish to share her deep wisdom and my love to the river Kamniška Bistrica with you.
