My name is Sol Sebastian. I’m the founder of a program called The Alchemy of Man which is a man’s work and it covers a wide range of things but especially in relation to hormonal health, sexual health, relational health and just being a man, being a dude in this world trying to live at his best. And my work takes me to very many parts of the world and I travel and have traveled for quite extensively for the past, well since the mid-90s.
But especially the past decade or so I’ve been quite traveling a lot and since meeting my partner, my partner in crime and my wife, Saida Desilets who does work with women, we’ve been sort of on the road for many years and really consider the world our own that it’s hard to sort of pinpoint one particular place that is home for us. So the idea of conscious nomads is something quite close to my heart as well as my wife’s heart because we are quite nomadic in the true sense of the word. And yes so I have to love to share all that.
Bram: Can you give us an idea of what your travel’s been like over the last several months or longer? Where have you been? What you have been doing?
Sol: Last several months we’ve been in Bali which is where we back to here. But in the past few months we’ve been in South Africa in the middle of the some of the most game-rich, some of the most predator-rich game reserves in Africa. Hanging out with lions and hyenas and elephants like very, very close, you know, this same distance from you to the camera in fact, and been really loving that. That was amazing experience. We’ve also been in Amsterdam where we spent two months putting together some online content.
Part of our work has an online component so we spent quite some time in Amsterdam where the Internet was good. We managed to put together quite an extensive program. We’ve been… Mostly throughout been a little bit more settled this year in terms of what we used to. We used to travel very rapidly. My partner has been in many more places this season. She’s been in Australia, in Canada and the Europe. I mean it’s a little hard to track actually where we have been this year. But I think the highlight for us was South Africa for sure. That was one place who really stood out for us this year.
Bram: Did you become mobile is a necessity for this business or this type of business or regarding your business around being mobile?
Sol: The business was planned around being mobile because we’re both [0:03:17.0 inaudible] at heart. And we always love to travel and it’s something I think I really love about being with my partner because we both have this passion to be mobile to see as much, to really eat in as much of this world as we can. And we have no children. We’re sort of pretty footloose and fancy free in that aspect and so we’ve really made the most of that. And we have an appetite, let’s say, we have a very big appetite to see as much on this planet extremely possible.
Bram: And what are some of the things you find attractive about this kind of lifestyle?
