Nature is where we are meant to be.
It’s where we can go to find our soul and our heart and get back to mental clarity.

Six years ago, I went through one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I had been betrayed, I was heartbroken, and in an instant, everything I knew about the life I was living changed.

It was in my search for release from my suffering that I turned to nature for healing. I didn’t know what I would find when I got there, but what I discovered allowed me to heal in a deeper way than I ever thought would be possible. 

I want that for you, too. 

I designed this free guide because I wanted to be able to show as many people as possible that nature is one of the most powerful healing tools out there, and how I have learned to use it to guide others through their own personal healing experiences. 

The best part is that you don’t need to plan a big long trip to the mountains to get started. You can begin right away with a few mini-exercises I’ve created to introduce you to the magic ✨

💫We create a more loving existence + world when AWARE.

Be aware of your thoughts.
Your actions.
Be aware of your attitude + emotions.
Be aware of who you gift your energy to.
And who takes your energy without permission.
Be aware of how you speak to others.
But first, be aware of how you speak to YOURSELF.
Be aware of who you shut out.
And be aware of who you LET IN.
Be aware of your beating heart.
Your flaming soul.
Your wise mind.
Your beautiful body.
And .. your irreplaceable life.

In awareness .. we are grateful. And there’s no better moment to be grateful for YOU than the present moment you are in.


You are worthy.
You are loved.
You matter.

Tag someone you are thinking about in this very moment .. let’s PLEASE be aware of one another.

I love you.

I was floating on my paddle board miles offshore yesterday while talking on the phone with my father. (I know, that alone sounds crazy!)

He asked the usual question, "How are book sales going?"

I paused for a moment + said, "Good, dad. I'm working on getting these into as many hands as possible. It would be easier if I was a big fish in a small pond, but hey. Every step, right?"

He responded, "Well, you aren't a small fish in a big pond, Sara. And (gasp) YOU CAN’T BE ON A SUMMIT WITHOUT THE CLIMB."

Wise words, dad. Wise words.

There are days that we forget to slow down + appreciate how far we have come. Me, included. I see what is possible in this world + my exuberance drives me to get there. Not only for me, but for all of those people who I feel my book + projects will help. It's a yearning + calling, really. A calling to look into another persons heart + soul through the words on a page and have them understand YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Your struggles are real. Your hurt is valid. And your pain will only define you if steps aren't taken to release what is holding you back and receive what is possible in your lifetime.

As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, most will say, "Sit in gratitude."

I'd like to say, "Practice self compassion this week."

As we take steps to love ourselves more deeply, to practice unconditional worthiness for our heart + soul, we begin to feel more self-gratitude for our own lives in this moment. For the cup of coffee you hold in the morning. The apple you bite into for a snack. For your feet sinking into the earth + for the smile you witness take hold on a strangers face.

This world needs so much compassion + love at this time. By starting with each one of us, we spread to one another.
