keep it wild edition

Our mission at Face the Current is to create a ripple effect of positive change providing fuel for our reader’s to live an authentic, inspired life and achieve their full potential. But what does it mean to keep it wild in this context? “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”–Howard Thurman Consider that living a ‘wild’ life means not being ruled by fear, stress, and anxiety; staying true to yourself and jettisoning the naysayers and/or societal expectations that instill self-doubt. Simply put, it can mean having the courage to be your most authentic self. We need to free ourselves from the constraints that keep us stuck, complacent, and “normal”—which…

van boom! how wild and free road tripping has become a lifestyle

Sergei Boutenko is a story teller. His life as a filmmaker, author, entrepreneur, green smoothie enthusiast, forager, health nut and overall adventurer provides him ample ideas to share his thoughts and experiences. His wild life includes him participating in lecture tours, conducting podcasts, writing articles, hosting retreats and generally being on the road. Because of his somewhat nomadic existence, Sergei was attracted to the van life. For some, living in a van allows them to travel freely. For others, it lets them save money to pursue a passion. And still others are just drawn to van living because they want to maintain a lifestyle of minimalism and self-reliance. Fascinated by the van life trend, Sergei is determined to make sense of it all and capture that in his new documentary…

My most memorable trip in the wilderness would have to be hiking the Tiger Leaping Gorge in China back in 2015. The hike itself was only two days, but was one of the most grueling and beautiful I have ever participated in. Hiking along a gorge with the vast mountains of South-Western China looming overhead was quite an experience, and we only encountered a few fellow hikers over the 2 days. Our half-way house was perched at the top of a hill, and watching the sunset over…
