Wild Human Nature

Explore what it means to be part of nature. Humans have evolved through their relationship with the land. The practice of Earthing, Coyote mentoring, becoming part of the forest so the birds start flitting around again, are all ways to become part of the forest again.

Fox medicine teaches us to meld with the forest, then we can truly see what it has to teach us. Create  your own plant blessing, ask permission to harvest part of a  plant. The power of deep listening to nature's subtle signals is amazing!

Learn about collecting plants from healthy plant populations so you are nourished and the plant community can rebound.

"In February 2019 I saw Julie Walker present at the 'Living in the Natural Environment' Event. Her presentation on 'The Wild Foods of the Forest Floor' was incredibly informative yet approachable. Her passion for wild edible plants is evident and I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation. I was inspired to plant my very own native food garden, which is progressing nicely!"

“Thanks, I really enjoyed my hike with full circle adventures.  I think your guiding style is cool, a little of this and that and even a song, a poem and impressions of wildlife!"


“Hiking with Julie has awakened my senses, she has taught me to listen to Wildlife, hear running water, and learn about the birds around us. That heightened awareness brings so much pleasure to hiking on the trail.”

“Powderface Ridge was a magical day!”
