Connecting with Nature
Mediums of Connection
For all skill and experience levels, this is the most simple way to connect with Nature. As a certified Wilderness First Responder and EMT I am well equipped and confident in my ability to lead safe, fun, and fulfilling hikes. Nature is universally cathartic - Simply embracing the Wilderness will lead to external and internal Connection.
“Going to the woods is going home.”
- John Muir
One on One Discussion
In the woods, at your dining room table, or anywhere in between, one on one discussions let you get to know me, and let me get to know you. As exhilarating as the Wilderness can be, human connection begins with the human. Even if we never see a hiking trail, one on one discussion will allow us to adjust your perspective and understanding of self, allowing you to pursue who you really are. During our sessions, we’ll map your needs to come up with a program that works for you.
"We're all just walking each other home."
- Ram Dass
Backpacking and Snowshoeing
Just because it's cold doesn't mean Nature won't heal. Backpacking and snowshoeing forges grit and perseverance that can only come from being alone in the Wilderness. The peace, quiet, and cold is an unparalleled atmosphere for growth and regeneration.
"The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Yoga and Meditation
There is something Connecting and healing in Nature. Mind-Body-Spirit connection is real and is a necessary component to maximizing a fulfilling and sustainable life. Cultivate a sense of calmness and inner peace, explore your energy, nurture awareness, and remove road-blocks keeping you from fully experiencing life.
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future. Concentrate the mind on the present moment."
Spending any amount of time in Nature is cathartic, but making it your home for a period of time reaches another level of healing. With only ourselves, there is nowhere to look for answers but inwards. Whether it is a one night experience or four, laying your head down in the Wilderness is an all but necessary part of the organic growth and soul-searching process.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to confront only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
- Henry David Thoreau
