About Kimberly

The golden thread running through my life’s journey is a persistent calling to find, as Frederick Buechner describes, the place where my deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger. I hope that this offering will be one in which we can flourish and discern together how best to live into that fiercely tender calling.

Time to Just Be

“Kimberly is obviously passionate about sharing her love of nature and the benefits of taking time to just “be.” She is able to make you think and be present in the moment. If you have the time to take part in one of her activities, I would recommend it.” –  NR

A repeatable experience

“Kimberly is a hospitable, holistic host who gently sets an ambiance with a welcoming inclusive tone of the anticipated journey… weaving a thread of kindness, reflectiveness and restfulness. A repeatable experience but more importantly enrichment for future walks of my own.” – SO

“Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.”

― Mary Oliver

You might not know you need it...

“Try it! You might now know you needed it until you leave lighter and refreshed.” – HR

A peaceful, calm break...

“A peaceful, calm break from the business of everyday life! Kimberly provides a perfect 🙂 connection with nature to encourage the ‘stop’ from life!” – BL

May all that is unforgiven in you be released. May your fears yield their deepest tranquilities. May all that is unlived in you blossom into a future graced with love.

– John O’Donohue
