Back from my Vision Quest and YOU are part of my incorporation!

Day 3 or 4 of my solo fast
Thank you for the thoughts, prayers, blessings, etc.. My time in
Colorado attending “Queer Quest” with School Of Lost Borders was
incredible beyond words. Thank you for the support. It definitely
kept me going during my 4 day solo fast and I am deeply grateful.
Met some truly sweet, inspiring, and loving people as well as our 
amazing guides.  I’m holding all these people and experiences deep
in my heart as we all work on incorporating back into the 
tamed/chaos worlds. 

Part of how I am incorporating, is by guiding Forest Therapy!  This
week I guided the Friends Of The Blue Hills in celebration of their
40th Anniversary!  Such a great organization that I am now a
proud member of as well.  Check out Friends Of The Blue Hills!

I will also be guiding a walk with the Emerald Necklace
Conservancy’s Green Team this week at Franklin Park. 

The Green Team is a youth crew of 30 Boston residents between the ages of 15-18 employed by the city to tend the parks while also
participating in nature connection and environmental education
programming for 6 weeks every summer.  I had the privilege of 
guiding last years Green Team and it was particularly sweet to just
relax with them and enjoy the land that they work so hard 
maintaining.  
On Sunday, August 11th, I will be offering another day-long Forest
Bathing Retreat on Peddocks Islands in partnership with Boston
Harbor Now! Price includes a roundtrip ferry ride across the harbor and a full day of nature immersion with optional lunch.  
We had our first one in July and it was an incredible day!

On Sunday, August 25th, I will be out in Stockbridge, MA with Handshouse Studio, an educational organization founded by Rick and Laura Brown who have curated a series of events to engage visitors with their exhibition; “One Impulse from a Vernal Wood.” All events are free with regular admission and set in the woodland walks and gardens at Chesterwood.  Rick and Laura are incredible people and their
project “One Impulse” is all about turning downed trees into art and working in consort with the environment.

In June I officially became a trainer with the Association Of Nature
and Forest Therapy (ANFT).  It is an absolute honor to be a full
fledged trainer with ANFT and I am so looking forward to co-training my next Forest Therapy Guide Training this September at Bethel
Farms in New Hampshire.  There are still spots available on this
training.  Interested in becoming a Forest Therapy Guide?
