体验内容

In accordance with COVID-19 safe practices, from our meeting place we will caravan, each participant group in their own vehicle, to a lesser known/traveled but stunningly beautiful section of the Appalachian Trail, about 50 min from Weaverville. Once there we will spread out and take a minute to drop in and be present as I lead you through a couple of presence and awareness activities. Then we'll hit the trail (min 6 ft apart)! This is a slow hike, not a race. We'll take time to notice and engage with our surroundings. Each person offers a new and unique perspective. Depending on the season we will pause to learn a few flowers or wild edibles.
This is an out and back hike. The distance we'll cover depends on how engaged we are and how much we stop to observe and interact with our surroundings. Keep in mind the objectives of this experience are presence and engagement, not distance.
Towards the end of the hike -depending on group consensus- we will either hike or drive to a nearby fire tower where we will be privy to breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains. When we have taken in as much beauty as we can hold, or the wind drives us down, we will conclude our hike and you will drive yourselves on to your next adventure.
Other things to note
Aside from travel time, this experience is entirely outdoors. Except in cases of dangerous conditions, we will hike rain or shine. Please check the weather and dress appropriately! Make sure you have rain gear. Layers strongly recommended. Avoid cotton.

I've spent much of my life in the forest, from growing up on 300 acres of forest adjacent to National Forest in northern Minnesota, to living in a State Park while teaching Environmental Education in New Hampshire, to living and working on the Pacific Crest Trail in California and Washington. I hold a degree in Environmental Studies which has led me to experiences of teaching both adults and children about the natural world of which we are an integral part. Most recently I was working in a Forest Kindergarten here in these amazingly biodiverse mountains of North Carolina where we spent the entire day playing in, learning from and communing with the forest and each other. It was such an impactful experience that I desire to expand access of this experience to adults and children from all backgrounds and geographies.
