Writing Through the Changes

December - March - June - September
2021 - 2022

A Self-Directed Study Course!

Seasonal pivots in our calendar are times of transitions, profound places to contemplate what is shifting in both our internal and external worlds. Writing through the Changes is a self-directed, writing-driven experience marking the changes of winter, spring, summer and fall. Contemplative exercises included in seasonally delivered Portfolio Packets include journaling and meditation prompts; connecting to nature exercises; and inspiring readings to incite calm, balance, grounding and a sense of belonging to self, community and place.

Portfolio Packets are delivered before each Winter and Summer Solstice and Spring and Summer Equinox. Materials are formatted in various downloadable modalities: video, audio and pdf document so you can complete them anytime, anywhere, and for however long you choose. Individual seasons: $60 each, multiple season discounts often available.
This course is made possible through the generosity of the Artistic Enrichment Grant of the Crested Butte Arts Festival.

Private Guided Hikes

Hiking, peak climbs, backpacking, snowshoeing and more!

I guide with Colorado Backcountry, an awesome, independent guiding company here in Crested Butte owned by long-time locals Janae and Ben Pritchett. You can ask for me by name when you book hiking, peak climbing, backpacking, or snowshoeing trips. I'll cater the trip to fit your needs according to distance, strenuousness, and what you want to do be it make some miles or doddle about looking at wildflowers. In all of my trips I'll offer information on wildflowers, natural history, local history, and other information gained from my multiple decades living and guiding in the Gunnison Valley and beyond, to help make your hike more in depth and enjoyable. I know the area like the back of my hand, and I can share it with you!
