After retiring from a long career in nonprofit operations management (including Health Care, Education and Mental Health Services), I've now created a heart centered vocation as a Forest Therapy Guide and Embodied Awareness Coach.  When I'm not guiding Walks, I can often be found participating in local meditation groups, playing chess, taking long solo walks in the woods and writing down whatever comes to mind.  A brief example follows …

Dreaming the dream within a dream
Waking from sleep again, to remember
The faces I've lived behind, and the lives
That have ended and begun, time after time

The Husband and Father desperate to find food for his family
The Wife and Mother mourning for her hungry children
The Warrior striving to honor his father and mother
Thrusting himself forward until he breaks against the rock

The Holy One who sits in silence remembering them all
While the upright sword stands tall in the soundless stone
A hand slowly reaches up to cradle and then grip its shining hilt
So, its light blazing, the freed blade lifts and then blossoms, into a pen

This guide has no scheduled walks.

This guide has no published videos.
