Into The Wild with Andrea Ference

Posted by Anupaya Admin on

I was raised on the side of a hill in southern Alberta with my parents and four brothers, we had a big bay window in our front room overlooking the Rocky Mountains that I would gaze out of and daydream about first ascent routes (long before I would learn what an ascent route was) and the animals I would encounter on my adventures. As the only girl I became fiercely independent at a young age,  often found in the woods, long after my mom called us in for dinner, covered in dirt from collecting branches and rocks. I always joke that wandering mountains is in my blood - my grandparents were born and raised in the Austrian Alps! From the North America Rockies to the European Alps there is something comforting about being a part of something so immense.

5 Things to Take Hiking

Posted by Shannon MacLaggan on

There is nothing quite like getting outside into nature to bring us back home to ourselves.

We put away the timetable and the agenda. The deadlines, the meetings and the expectations.

And we just simply, fully, show up.

There is a rhythm in nature. 
A beautiful, barely perceptible orchestra plays the soundtrack of life itself. 
It can be heard, but more so felt when we allow ourselves to become the audience.  When we place ourselves in the right seat and become still enough.
There are certain sounds that stir the light in us all. Crickets at night for some, a crackling fire for others. Perhaps the powerful rushing of waterfalls or the delicate trickle of rain. 
There is a pace to nature. 
It is different from the pace we hold in daily life.  Its slower, more methodical.  Like our breath when we allow ourselves a moment of slowness.

Look Up.

Posted by Anupaya Admin on

We live in an instant world, folks.

Text messages allow others to contact us at any given moment, our phones light up when our attention is needed for an email, a ‘like’ or when a DM rolls in, and we are almost always expected to document our lives as they unfold under the premise ‘pics or it didn’t happen’.

In an age where we feel lost without our smart phones, when we are so deeply addicted to technology, it’s more crucial than ever to disconnect, slow down and take the time to genuinely LOOK UP!
