PURPOSE & INSPIRATION
“Man In the Box offers an adventure-based learning approach to personal development. With our work, we empower personal leadership & inner engineering, in outdoor training programs powered nature & native culture. Together, we’re building an autonomous community of liberated people, here to leave this world better than we found it”
We design ABL products and services of various kinds, all aimed at inciting a cycle of deep learning in the outdoors. In doing so, we support the development individuals, groups and organisations with Adventure-based-Learning Tools & Methods.
Instead of providing short-cuts or quick fixes, we are in it for the long run. We empower people from all walks of life to truly overcome their challenges, reach their objectives and use their potential in a sustainable way.
Our activities are:
Nature gives us a reality check, whatever we see around us happens inside of us, and if we want to learn how to become stable human-beings, we need to understand first that nature is where we are from, belong in, and relate towards during our entire lives.
Indigenous cultures of all times and places have studied the ways of nature to define cyclic, rhythmic lifestyles that harmonise the behaviour of people, with that of the planet, we need to look at these cultures and understand their ways can teach us a lot about how to live well.
Adventure’ or experience, is what creates a breach in our daily comings and goings, the moments we take a step beyond the usual, is when we open a window for change, we are provided a new point of departure a turning point, where we can decide to go a different way
The entire story of humanity is about survival, about learning how to stay alive in the world, and move through existence as a species. Living in today’s world has taken away much of the usual friction, thereby diminishing our learning opportunities and hijacking many of our evolutionary capabilities, these are things to be re-learned.
