We have a number of tours devoted to appreciating the natural beauty and aliveness this Universe has to offer, while connecting with the same aliveness that animates our bodies. Whether we are gazing at the mountains, the sun, the moon, the stars, the forest, a waterfall, whether hiking in the woods or sitting on the mountain top, we start each tour by setting an intention to help ground us in the present moment. We provide some guidance on attaining a state of expanded awareness designed to connect us with the rich aliveness of the natural world all around. Our guided meditations are designed to create a sense of oneness with all that is, while Mother Nature provides a beautiful container for Self-exploration and Self-discovery. Each tour concludes with a sharing circle for those who feel motivated to share their experience and some guidance for further Self-investigation. Each participant will leave feeling a deeper connection to all that is as well as tools to help them connect with inner peace in the midst of everyday life.
I go by Trey (I'm a third) and I've lived in the mountains near Asheville all my life and have spent a great deal of time in nature. After a nature-assisted awakening experience in 2007, I became passionate about the transformative power of meditation. I began writing and eventually published a book, A Seeker's Guide to Inner Peace, which is a collection of insights and meditations that have brought me a great deal of peace. I began hosting weekly group meetings in 2007 devoted to people who have an interest in meditation and awakening. I have found over the years that combining meditation with nature is a wonderful way to discover the peace that we all seek. I started offering meditation hikes in 2017, which then led me to create Zen Mountain Tours. I now organize a number of tours designed to bring about inner peace.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are some of the oldest mountains on the planet and are abundant with countless points of interest and endless possibilities for exploring the natural beauty of Western North Carolina. We customize the experience based on the requests of the hikers (easy to moderate) and what they would like to see (waterfalls, mountain top views, sunsets, stargazing, etc.). Tours are usually within an hour drive of Asheville.
