Episode 120 – The Resilient Minds Podcast with Johan Van Vuuren

Released on June 23rd, 2022
How many of us have ever wanted to leave everything behind, head out on a great adventure and explore this magnificent reality we have been gifted? It’s a common aspiration, but all too often we are experts at finding reasons to delay, to postpone, or just abandon the idea altogether. We are taught that those kind of experiences are for others, not for us, that we should just accept the way things are, the circumstances we’re in, without dreaming of anything more.

Johan Van Vuuren smashes those fallacies in almost everything he does. As an adventurer, explorer, experiencer and guide, he gets the most out of every minute and helps others to manifest their own ideal reality along the way. His journey is one of discovery, both of self and other, distant places and intimate corners of life, shared as inspiration, but also as lessons for those ready to receive them.

Of course, each of us has our own adventure, and not all of them will take us to snow-capped mountain peaks. Learning to love yourself, find happiness in who you are, and overcoming emotional trauma are no less challenging than a great cross-country expedition. Johan learns as much from his young daughter, and from himself, as he does from his travels, a reminder to all of us not to allow material circumstances restrict our spiritual development. Every journey begins inside us, and while some of us take that journey on the road, watching as places and people change, the real transformation takes place within.

Even in an age of insta-travel there is still one journey that we can never be prepared for, the greatest and most important one of our lives: the journey to ourselves.
