Unplug With Nature

Sometimes life can be too complicated, too demanding and just too downright exhausting.  When this happens, luckily there is an "opt out" plan that can immediately restore your sanity, realign your priorities and once again bring a relaxed and peaceful ambience back into your life.  The plan is simply to reconnect to the magic and wonder of the woods.

There is a certain inherent quality in the woods that beckons you to leave behind the digital, over-stimulated world and step into a pristine environment where beauty, joy, peace and tranquility hold court.  This is living in the moment and enjoying every glorious second of it.  Hiking in the woods enables you to tap into the innate ancient wisdom of the trees and feel your body transform as a result.  Indeed, it is this unadulterated sacred sanctuary that fills you with such a comforting peace that your entire body seems to let out a huge sigh of relief.  You again realize that there is more to life than iPads, iPhones and rushing around.

If you want to personally experience the extraordinary gift of connecting intimately with nature in the woods, and with your heart, join us on our "Unplug with Nature" programs.  Held twice monthly, these delightful adventures, suitable for most fitness levels, will introduce you to what it's like to unplug, unwind and unleash from the stressful world and embrace a more peaceful and life-enhancing alternative.  The meditative walks usually last from one to two hours while the mindful hikes range from two to four hours.  Group and individual sessions are available.  The location and types of paths vary depending on the needs of the participants. Most hikes are done in the mountains lasting anywhere from 2 to 4 hours of delightful adventure.  Contact Darlene at for details.

In addition to the group walks and hikes, individual guided walks and hikes can be arranged for most days of the week.  For more information, contact Darlene at or 828-273-5567.

Discover the Magic of the Mountains

The spirit of plant, trees and ancient rocks all hold a beautiful vibration that is filled with healing energy and love.  Add to this the presence of orbs and you have the makings of a truly magical spot.  Discover the magic of the mountains at a blissful orb sanctuary surrounded by towering trees, flowing streams and a very special waterfall.  Connect with the nature spirits and feel your body transformed.  For a privately guided hike to this magical spot contact Darlene at 828-273-5567.  It will be a life-changing experience.

Be Ready to Move

Every day in Africa, a lion wakes up.  It knows it has to move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.  Every day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.  It knows it has to move faster than the fastest lion or it will die.  It really doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle.  What matters is that when the sun comes up, you better be moving.
