Today’s conversation is one with a difference. When I asked today’s guest for her bio she came back to me and said everything I had identified with before has changed and really I’m just a person who’s done a hike.
And not just any hike. Kirsten Stallard spent 155 days walking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico border to the Canadian border covering 4270km of terrain including 42 days across the desert to the final days walking through snow and freezing conditions.
Why you might ask? Well I did. Kirsten had realised that her life needed to change and as an extrovert wanted learn how to be alone. She left her job, a 6 year relationship and found the PCT calling her.
This conversation is extraordinary as Kirsten shares the paradox of completing a pilgrimage like this. We talk about the little details like what you eat, to the lessons you learn along the way, including the challenge of asking and receiving help.
If you’ve ever had the yearning to put quiet to the noise, don a backpack, and step away from life then this conversation is an adventure worth hearing.
Join us in stepping into the lessons from the trail with Kirsten Stallard.
