Pathfinders

Take a hike. Find your path.

Have you ever wondered what you’re meant to do in the world? Or felt a bit jealous of those who seem to have it figured out?

What if there was a fun way to find your path and purpose?

Imagine having an engaging conversation with someone—the kind where hours fly by before you realize it—and the person you’re talking to understands and empathizes with all of the difficulties that you’re facing right now. In fact, they’re facing a lot of the exact same challenges themselves.

Now imagine exploring all kinds of new perspectives, leads, and ideas for moving forward with your new confidante while ambling down a gorgeous path through the woods, passing rivers and lakes and turtles and birds, and breathing fresh air deep into your lungs. And you realize that this is exactly where you’re meant to be.

Yep. That’s Pathfinders in a nutshell.

At first when I heard about the Pathfinders Group Hike I was a bit hesitant in hiking with strangers and sharing my unsureness about my career. To my surprise I not only had an insightful coach during the hike, but I also met some great people that I was able to share my uncertainty with in regards to my career. It is great to be around others in the same position as you are and that understand where you are coming from.

Meet the people who have your back.

Pathfinders is part hike, part facilitated discussion, and part meditation.

You’ll start by meeting up at a park in or close to Atlanta, a different one every month. After a brief introduction, you’ll be provided a partner and a question suggestion – something designed to help you get more clarity in your search for work you love. Then simply walk on a comfortable trail through the woods, exploring the question with your partner.

You’ll have the chance to speak with multiple people throughout the hike. You’ll also learn some meditation techniques that can help you calm anxiety and get in touch with your intuition.

Oh, and the best part of all? You’ll get a yummy snack. Because what’s the point of answering your calling if it isn’t delicious?

The hike was just what I needed to help me deal with my anxieties about a career change. I met others who shared their stories and had many of the same issues I do, and the support they showed for my career change plans really validated that I am making the right choice for me and am on the right track.

The hiking format is brilliant, and Meredith made everyone feel immediately at ease. The metaphor of finding one’s path became real through this grounding experience of connecting with nature and other people from an array of backgrounds. The conversations I had helped me process what I want in my career and in life. Perhaps most importantly, it reminded me that many of the questions we ask ourselves are universally human. And that everyone truly has unique gifts to give the world.
