I LOVE the St. Croix river!!!!


I have found solace, fun, joy, wonder and refreshment in, on and around the St. Croix. I want to give back and facilitate offerings for others to experience some of gifts the St. Croix river has given to me.

A mind-body walk or paddle includes an individualized, guided mindful walk or paddle on or near the St. Croix River. Mind-body skills are taught as an option to support participates in realizing their innate resilience and self care to manage stress, life changes or health conditions in an intimate outdoor setting.
