Haku Miasaki is passionate about leading a life that gives the most good it can to the world around, especially considering the amount of disconnect and suffering that our human family lives today. This has led him from learning about sustainability and making conscious decisions in our material world, to clubs for tracking wildlife and the 8 Shields - an organization offering short and year-long residential programs that focus on nature connection, regenerative design, cultural mentoring, and primitive skills.
He has taken courses in IATS, 2 years of RDNA 'Native Eyes', and 2 years of the Leadership Initiation Project, focusing on ceremony and connective practices. He has been a nature connection mentor/leader to youth through the Riekes Center since 2009.
He brings to Stepping Stones his authentic connection with youth, his playfulness, peacemaking, games, climbing, parkour, mindfulness, archery, naturalist skills, and storytelling. He finds that the greatest learning has come simply from the experience of Life - the joy and the pain, the successes and mistakes, the decisions made and the awareness of their effects, the relationships to all people and the World.
You could say the focus of his path in life right now is to do what he can to nurture and support connection/Love between his fellow people and the World, between each other and peace within oneself - and to have the most fun he can while doing so. For the most part this means simply learning what makes him a fully alive and thriving person, being able to share that with the world around, and helping others to learn how to do that for themselves. He is not here really to teach anyone how to do anything, he is here more to offer guidance in whatever way he can to others along their own path. They are the ones who must make their own choices and find out what their life means to them.
Gratitude for this opportunity.
