Meet your guide…

Rachel Hodge, MSW

My journey into becoming a Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide began with a deep reverence for the beauty and wisdom found in every unique leaf, every inhale of the rebalancing aromas of tree sap, and every gentle touch of velvety moss on my fingertips. I've found comfort in knowing the forest is devoid of layers of artifice and judgement that we tend to have in our society.

Deep listening (or Suni-ai) is a state of being we seldom practice with the relentless pace of this world. Yet, the forest gently reminds us we deserve moments to pause, breathe, and simply be.

As your guide, I am wholeheartedly committed to creating a nurturing and inclusive environment that honors the uniqueness of every individual. I recognize that cultivating a harmonious relationship with oneself, nature, and community is deeply personal and meaningful. So, whether you are seeking a moment of stillness amidst life’s chaos, a reconnection with your inner wisdom, or simply a chance to indulge your senses in the beauty of nature, know you are invited and supported here. 

With infinite gratitude, I look forward to our walk together!
