One of my happy places is guiding in-person Nature and Forest Therapy walks, which I call Mindful Meanders.  These in-person walks are short in distance, gentle in terrain, and big in experience!  I offer these in-person walks at least once a month in all kinds of outdoor spaces - primarily in Gatlinburg, Knoxville, and Townsend, as well as surrounding parks and beyond. 


I am offering at least one free, public in-person walk per month and am open to providing others by request! 

Here are the scheduled, upcoming, public in-person walks:

  • Saturday, July 15, 2023 

  • Saturday, August 5, 2023 

  • Saturday, September 16, 2023 

  • Monday, October 9, 2023 

  • Friday, November 24, 2023 

  • Saturday, December 9, 2023 

To sign up for one of these walks, request a walk on a different date, or explore a partnership or other offering, complete the form by clicking the 'In-Person Walk Sign Up Form' button below.  You are welcome to submit this form as often as you like throughout the year.  You can also contact me at or 865-36-5371 if you have any questions or would prefer to sign up that way.  I am more than happy to add walks and additional events by request! The locations listed are tentative, and the specifics will be shared with those that sign up or express interest in each walk. 

For those who may not have a local guide or be comfortable/able to venture out, I also offer virtual experiences that utilize photos, videos, guided meditation, and imagery to offer a nature-focused breath.  I will begin offering these virtual offerings again in the Fall and provide them monthly on a Sunday at 10 am ET.  Virtual walks can be experienced from wherever you are. Please email me if you want to be added to the email distribution list to receive reminders and the Zoom link information.
