Into The Mystic…
The wildlife and literacy activist Boyd Varty, author of the memoir Cathedral of the Wild, had an unconventional upbringing. Born to a family of conservationists, Boyd grew up on Londolozi Game Reserve in the South African wilderness, a place where man and nature strive for balance, where perils exist alongside wonders. Founded more than 90 years ago as a hunting ground, Londolozi was transformed into a nature reserve beginning in 1973 by Varty’s father and uncle, visionaries of the restoration movement. But it wasn’t just a sanctuary for the animals; it was also a place for ravaged land to flourish again and for the human spirit to be restored. When Nelson Mandela was released after 27 years of imprisonment, he came to the reserve to recover.
Since childhood, Boyd shared his home with lions, leopards, snakes, and elephants and has spent his life in apprenticeship to the wisdom of nature. Boyd survived a harrowing black mamba encounter, a debilitating bout with malaria, even a vicious crocodile attack, but his biggest challenge was a personal crisis of purpose. Boyd grew up speaking the local language and learning the true meaning of coexistence between people and with nature.

Into The Mystic…In Nature That Is…40 Days & 40 Nights With Boyd Varty
Sunday, September 27 10:00 a.m. EST
Up close and personal into the mind and experience of this man who longed to answer this question…there are over 40,000 accounts of mystics going into the wilderness. Why?
Why has the mystic and the natural world been intertwined with symbolic meaning and the path of awakening to a different way of perceiving life since the beginning of human experience? On the 1st of April, Boyd realized a lifelong dream as he went into the wilderness alone for 40 days and 40 nights.
Boyd studied within a typical western educational system while travelling the African bush to restore ecosystems and living in India and Europe to deepen his understanding of language and culture. As a university student he studied psychology and ecology, learned martial arts in Thailand, hiked the jungles of the Amazon, and apprenticed with a renowned tracker from the Shangaan tribe to deepen his intimate knowledge of the natural world.
“My hope is to explore the archetype of the mystic in nature. How my state of consciousness changes outside of the structures of modern life. Explore the dynamics of solitude and what it means to be wild.”
For many years he dreamed of this experience but to find 6 weeks to be alone had always been a challenge. During these very strange times and a global shutdown due to a pandemic it suddenly felt like the time had arrived. For a moment the world has gone into a collective time of reflection. It seems like we are realizing our relationship with nature must evolve and we are certainly being asked to think about the way we live.
