Hi, I'm Will! As a kid, the forest offered a wild inspiration to my imagination and I was often found in the woods. Nature began taking root in my heart as I co-created magical realms with the forest. Every fallen log was a bridge, mossy stump a kingdom and clearing in the trees - a treasury. I continue to be inspired and at home in natural spaces. 

Battling anxiety and depression throughout my life, I have always experienced nature’s healing hand. Spending years in multimedia production and spiritual ministry, I enjoy when the seen and unseen realms overlap. I find the inner world is often reflected by nature’s outer expression and believe enchantment, grounding, connection, and purpose can be found when we make time to seek it. 

In solidarity with my fellow LGBTQ+ community and anyone who has ever felt “othered, I'm growing Walk Weird Wildcraft into a resource, to help people embrace their uniqueness and to promote wild spaces. 

Through forest therapy guiding and art I hope to spark the wonder of the inner child, supporting those willing to walk weird by slowing down, dropping into the senses, being present in the body, and open to the experience that nature has for them.

What is Forest Bathing?

In 1982, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries created the term shinrin-yoku, which translates to “forest bathing” or “absorbing the forest atmosphere.” 

The practice encourages people to spend time in nature, enjoying the benefits of physical and mental wellbeing. Some benefits include; stress hormone reduction, feelings of happiness and creativity, lowered heart rate, blood pressure, boosted immune system and accelerated recovery from illness.
