A Barefoot Adventure

Today marks the end of a six week experiment of barefoot walking!

This idea came about after taking part in Laura Hollick's International Soul Art Day. You can read that post here

I wanted to share some of the photos I took during the time and the words that came up each time I went and walked barefoot. I'll be honest - I didn't do it every single day. Even that has taught me something and I'm becoming much more aware of my 'patterns!'

When I did do it though - I LOVED it and some others joined in too! There is such a sense of freedom about taking off your shoes and letting your naked feet really feel the ground!! ahh! YES!

One of my favourite barefoot walks was actually running around the field behind my house in the rain!! I felt so free and childlike. It was Invigorating and down right fun and fabulous! That is something I will be doing again!
The words that came up during some of my barefoot walks
I'm going to spend a bit of time reflecting on the other things that I learnt from this experience but for now just wanted to celebrate having done it and to say - TRY IT!! 


  1. What a wonderful idea for (almost) daily adventures this is Morwhenna. I found it interesting to read the variety of words that came up for you and I love your gathering of barefoot walking images. I like that the images begin and end with the barefoot painting that sparked the walking adventures and look forward to reading more of your learnings when you have had time to process those thoughts. x

    1. Thank YOU Julia. Yes the effect of those six weeks is still fresh in my mind and I feel the time is right to revisit that now and look at the deeper benefits. I'll be posting another story about that soon. x Do give it a go! x

  2. Love how you take an idea and run with it Morwhenna (or should I say barefoot walk with it) when others would leave it at the idea stage. Lovely collection of photos. You come across as really enjoying the moment. x

    1. :-) Thank you Richard! I KNOW that was my way in the past and I ended up getting SO stuck, so not I do try and listen more to what comes up and then try it. I've discovered that these things usually lead on to something else..Which I think is all part of the adventure!
