Mountain expedition as spiritual research

Trekking in the mountains, when it is experienced intensely in each moment, is not just recreation or a pastime (and an expensive one at that) for “tuning out” of every day life.

Only those who are light may continue. It has happened to me more than once that I depart with a heavy mood, and...
