Adventure is the deliberate process of expanding our boundaries, both internal and external, through activities that excite the soul and focus the mind. It’s more than just visiting wild places, and stoke goes well beyond an elevated sense of happiness.
Pushing ourselves, externally with risk and internally with awareness, has profound effects on our capacity for joy, resilience, empathy, entrepreneurship and personal innovation.
Above all, adventure connects us to ourselves, each other, and the natural world. When we talk about stoke, we think Webster puts it best: To stir up; to feed abundantly, to increase intensity. It’s that point found beyond jubilation and giddiness; beyond fulfilled.
