To start, you will be joining me at the homestead on the mountain where I will walk you through the permaculture gardens introducing you to all the plants, as well as, the sheep, the pigs, the chickens and the ducks. Next We will go on one of the dozen 1 to 4 hr hikes within 5 minutes drive of the homestead. Which hike we choose will depend on the amount of time you have allotted for your experience and fitness level of participants. I know shortcuts to get out onto some of the best viewing ridges in the area. During the hike we will enjoy the perfection of nature through short mind-full awareness based meditations, possibly some yoga asana, and plant identification. Depending on the time of year and the weather conditions we will also engage in some wild harvest, enabling you to learn the proper ways to harvest medicine and food from the woods. If there is interest I can also share recent and long time history of the area. Our Hike will finish with a simple mind-full awareness meditation that will support the deepening of your experiences.
Raised in the forest of Mount Washington, MA. While studying international political economy in S. California I began studying yoga, meditation, primitive skills and permaculture. Inspired to connect others to the healing power of nature and food, I started a community farm and education project in Western Massachusetts. After finding success in education related to farming and wilderness awareness in the U.S. I participated in starting permaculture and meditation based in projects Thailand, Bali and in recent years Peru. During recent Berkshire summers, I have led a work crew of high school students doing farm and trail work. Currently, I am starting a perennial plant nursery, maintaining a beautiful homestead with my immediate family, teaching yoga and meditation, and guiding mindfullness practices in the forest and on farm.

We will first be visiting the farm and homestead of my family on Mount Washington which we can now proudly say is home to the greatest biodiversity of species I have seen in this area. The areas that we will go hiking will reveal some of the most pristine waters and panoramic views in the area. There are quite a few locations nearby that are not used or known by many others. I look forward to sharing these spots with you.
