Saved from danger in the forest

Originally appeared on

Deep in a forest in British Columbia, I learned the value of overcoming and destroying fear. It is an essential step needed for healing in any high-stakes situation.

Visiting from my home in England, I knew nothing about the local wilderness or the wildlife. I’d been raised in the suburbs of London, with only parks to give me an idea of what the countryside was like. With occasional visits to rural areas, I’d never ventured on my own into the wilderness.

We'd love to hear from you!
