I decided to start this group because I felt there was a need for a group that combined hiking with contemplative, introspective time in nature. I have a master's degree in Ecopsychology and have Wilderness First Responder Certification.
I'm hoping to learn how to lead groups on contemplative hikes in a way that feels educational, inspiring and lessens stress and anxiety. I would like to inspire people to realize the intrinsic value of nature.
I've love spending time in nature -- particularly the mountains. It's my favorite thing to do.
