Nature is beauty that can be emotionally moving and profoundly beautiful. Allow yourself to surrender, to open to receive the beauty within yourself.

"I work with ancient mysteries, the energy in the land, the animals & trees to help people experience beauty & connect with their inner wisdom and find a path with a heart.
I simply believe that all life is sacred and that nature can be a portal to a divine realm.
My beliefs and practices are reflected in many traditions, from around the world that respect, and learn from, nature including pilgrimages, walkabouts and vision quests.
It is my honor to connect with you."
