Do you ever wonder what happened to your adventurous self?
The part of you that thrived in uncertainty,
sought out novelty and excitement
and saw challenge as possibility?
If you are sometimes left wondering what happened to that person - or find yourself struggling to nurture that part of you amongst all the other commitments in your life, you are definitely not alone.
According to research conducted in 2018, the average age when we stop living so adventurously is 34.
As we take on more responsibility in our work and our life, our world can naturally start to contract. This can leave us feeling that a part of ourselves is missing…or has simply been left behind.
The good news is that the adventurous part of you hasn't disappeared - it's just lying dormant, waiting for that spark to reignite it. But even if we want to reclaim it, it can be really hard to begin - sometimes we all need a bit of help to get started…
Welcome to Reignite Your Adventure!
During this 4 week online course, Nicki Bass (Business Psychologist and Host of The Everyday Adventure Podcast) and Heather Sharp (Founder of Forces Wives Challenge and Leadership Consultant) invite you on a quest to rediscover your adventurous self. Each week, we will explore a different theme, with the aim of helping you to reconnect with the excitement, sense of purpose and possibility that adventure can bring.

Will the sessions be recorded?
Whilst we encourage you to attend the sessions live wherever possible, we know that life sometimes gets in the way! Each session will be recorded and the link will be sent the day after the session - it will then be available for you to view for one week.
Will I get access to 1-1 support from Nicki / Heather?
There will be 15 minutes available at the end of the session for any questions you have. You can also email these to us during the week so that we can reply during the session. However, please note that this is not a coaching course and due to the time available in the sessions, we will not be able to provide individually tailored advice regarding specific adventures.
How will I get the link to attend the session?
This will be provided in your confirmation from Eventbrite and a reminder will be emailed to you prior to each session.
Will there be homework?
Nicki and Heather will signpost exercises that can help develop the themes discussed in the session. Whilst these can help to reinforce and personalise the information provided, they are entirely at your discretion.
Are refunds provided if I find out I can't attend?
Whilst we fully understand that life can be hard to predict at times, unfortunately we will not be able to provide refunds once you have committed to the course. However, we will ensure that you receive a link to the recording so that you can catch up after each session and have up to a week to do so.
Will I be feeling more adventurous by the end of the course?
We certainly hope so! However, we need to acknowledge that everyone’s starting point, timescales and barriers are different; what may be a small hurdle to one person can feel like a precipice to another. What we can guarantee is that we will be providing a range of theories, tools and tips from our own experience that can, if applied, help kickstart the process. What you choose to do with these is very much up to you, but we aim to infuse you with as much excitement and self-belief as we can to help you to feel like it is possible!
So what are you waiting for - come and join us for the ride!
