What you'll do

We will hike - onwards and upwards-Man's natural pace- starting at sea level in Eze Bord de Mer we will pass through some of the most beautiful scenery and historical sites in France, we will climb to 696 meters. This is challenging and you need to be reasonably fit- its not a race and when we reach our highest spot, have enjoyed arguably the best view on the riviera, its time to meditate - Awareness meditation - breathing in where we are- sights, sounds, smells, taste and touch. My goal, apart from offering great cardio exercise and great views, is to re-visit our senses- appreciate living in the moment surrounded by beauty, nature and a living history. Detach totally from our everyday lives- We'll Touch the bark of a 2000 year old olive tree in Roquebrune village - and the ancient stones of the roman trophy in La Turbie village. With our senses heightened we continue our hike, now we descend, (equally challenging). The aim now is to be more in tune with ourselves and our surroundings to be "totally in the moment". We'll take lunch along the way in a local restaurant that specializes in provencal cuisine- This can be a continuation of our experience- To taste and savor - to ponder and reflect. Many people have experienced personal breakthrough during this experience.

Paul

I left the world of international interior design to pursue a path as a recovery mentor and life guide. I came to the Alpes Maritimes in 94 for a 6 month contract and stayed- WHY? I love this region- The weather, the food, the stunning scenery, the amazing places to visit and experience- the diversity of the place and its peoples. Its truly international. Hiking around here is amazing, challenging and hugely rewarding -. I will take you to jaw-dropping view points off the beaten track.We will also practice an awareness meditation at 696 meters altitude My philosophy is to help not just visit a place and see it - but to live it and make it your own while you're here. I have had the good fortune to explore many of the nature trails and footpaths in this region which is steeped in rich history, myths and legends. Let me share this with you.
