Hello…my name is Celes Davar. Welcome to Experience Riding Mountain. I am in the midst of half a century of experiencing life. As President of Earth Rhythms, Inc. I have found that my passion for “the experience of life” is best found through experiencing travel. My wife and I live on the southern edge of Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba, Canada where we operate our experiential tourism company in collaboration with many regional partners, experience providers, and guides.
We create small group programs that are customized, experiential, and educational. By collaborating with other unique people within our regional landscape, we are able to offer distinctive programs in all seasons that are simply unlike anything else in Canada.
I have wanted to share the stories of some amazing people that we partner with, our passion for nature, culture, wilderness, conservation issues, and my photography of the area for years. I look forward to sharing these stories here at Experience Riding Mountain. We live in times that are governed by deep splits in ethos, by a planet that is shuddering with the effects of global warming, and within multiple cultures whose traditions are experiencing change at the speed of lightning. Within this context, I find solace in the Riding Mountains where I can go snowshoeing, photographing, or sharing stories with our guests. I am, however, inspired about the opportunities to bridge the world of business with the care for the planet, or as has been developed elsewhere, Business As An Agent of World Benefit. In my case, Tourism as a Business that benefits local people and the planet.
I seek to inspire, to engage, to transform. Through stories, visual images, and authentic experience with unique people, places, and activities, I look forward to sharing Riding Mountain’s uniqueness. Here, on our Experience Riding Mountain Blog, or through our various unique experiences, which you can learn more about at Earth Rhythms.
