Bujinkan: Usagi & Grímnir

Activity: Bujinkan Usagi Grímnir Training Camp, June 2008

What did we do? Four days spent in nature; training vigorously in a friendly and safe atmosphere, an environment that is both rewarding and taxing at the same time. A world outside this world; no phones, no TV, no stress. Just playful fun, arduous training under the open sky and amidst the trees…

The most useful I found: Discovering one´s limits in the bush concerning energy and time. The useful properties of plants, roots and herbs. The profound joy in human companionship and the tales at the campfire…”To be alive, one must become surrounded by living things!”

Mystic Manifestations

Activity: Mystic Manifestations Art event, June 2005

What did we do? Hazepad assisted in setting up and realising the natural surroundings that became necessary for the creation – as well as atmosphere – of that particular event as well as the art that was created upon the mid-summer’s eve. The location, the knowledge and the spirit of nature; all held hand in hand under the guidance of Marco Verheij.

The most useful I found: Being able to traverse the natural landscape without doing damage or – indeed – leaving a trace. Receiving knowledge on every shrub, plant and tree… Knowing where you are and what you are dealing with. “Know your surroundings and know yourself!”
