Earth Goddess Hike: Medicine Wheel

“Throughout our hike, I’ll weave together ecology and psychology (born of my ecotherapy interest) and use nature as a lens for us to look at our lives and things that may be challenging at the moment. I also love to share the history of the area, particularly that of the Native American tribes of New Mexico (I was born on the Navajo/Dine reservation and work with a number of Dine friends when bringing guests to Canyon de Chelly).”

Price: From $50 USD (3 hours)

Review: “Wow absolutely had a magical time on this hike! It was snowing and WONDERFUL…Cheryl became ill but was very informative on following up and placing us in the hands of her wonderful business partner Larry. His sense of the land and connection within us all was truly uplifting and knowledgeable. I felt inspired by the words he spoke that I took away with me after the experience. The hike itself was gorgeous in the snow and not too strenuous, at all. Very easy to keep your pace and enjoy all the glory nature has provided us. 10/10!” – Meagan
