Pushing the boundaries of personal development int

first_imgPushing the boundaries of personal development into the great outdoors, the Extraordinary Adventure Club (EAC) offers a revolutionary programme that combines transformative therapies, coaching and mentoring with bespoke wilderness expeditions that are individually designed around a client’s psychological make-up and therapeutic journey.Founded in 2012 by former Royal Marines officer Calum Morrison, the EAC taps into the zeitgeist for personal development, to offer intensive opportunities for self-discovery, unlocking and activating the client’s inherent resilience and recalibrating their perceptions of themselves and the world around them. Joined by a motivational team of personnel – including clinical psychiatrists and psychotherapists, life coaches, management consultants plus specialists in conflict resolution, addiction and philanthropy – Morrison and his EAC team have achieved remarkable success in resolving a range of issues from anxiety, loss of life direction and low self-esteem to emotional breakdown and destructive behavioural cycles.From trekking with nomads through the Sudanese desert, motorbiking across the Mongolian wilderness, training with a Zimbabwean anti-poaching squad to dog-sledding across a Norwegian mountain plateau, these life-affirming challenges are at the heart of the EAC’s unique transformational process. Clients are stretched – emotionally and physically – enabling them to access untapped potential and hidden strengths, resulting in renewed confidence and reconnection with their authentic selves and personal purpose.This is not a short-term fix and requires a long-term commitment to tackle conditioning forged over many years. No two programmes are the same and clients are encouraged to commit to an initial engagement of six months, including an induction retreat in the Scottish Highlands, at least two wilderness expeditions – each lasting up to a fortnight – and regular face-to-face coaching and mentoring sessions. This support is consolidated with weekly correspondence and conversations, a closing retreat and ongoing contact, with many clients continuing to engage the EAC in supporting their longer-term development.EAC clients are often high-achieving individuals in the corporate world who have lost their direction in life, members of the next generation unable to break a negative spiral, or nurturers who’ve dedicated their lives to others and along the way have lost their own sense of self. The common thread is a questioning of their identity and purpose in life and an acknowledgment of an urgent need to recalibrate.“Our programmes shape and drive clients’ self-development,” stresses Morrison, “To find authentic, lasting motivation, creating a new framework for the life they actually want; kick-starting a journey of self-discovery that will deliver the very best version of themselves.”The EAC will soon launch a new ‘Life Skills’ programme specifically designed for younger clients to tackle the unique set of challenges relating to inherited wealth and to equip the next generation of large enterprise families with the skills to prosper in an era of social media, online scrutiny and security threats. The programme promotes significant personal expertise through a range of modules that adapt seamlessly into a one-year timeframe. The modules consist of medical and clinical support, personal mastery, reputation management, personal and professional security, environmental stewardship and intra- and entrepreneurial skills. Experiential learning is at the heart of the process, exposing clients within a framework of locations, situations and contexts that mirror the realities of their future. The course acts as a preventative strike, equipping younger clients with the emotional, physical and intellectual skills to live responsibly.“Rather than suffering a crisis in your forties, let’s see you at 20 and set you up for success,” says Morrison.last_img read more
