Mindy Schlimgen, Resiliency & Nature-based Coach, Awareness With Nature, LLC
Mindy’s earliest memory of connecting with nature was as a young Girl Scout. She learned to wilderness backpack at the age of 18 in SW Colorado and studied natural resources, earning degrees in Forestry (BS) and Water Resources (MS). As a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala she taught reforestation and soil conservation techniques. She later worked for the US Forest Service, Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources, New Mexico Environment Dept., American Rivers, The Nature Conservancy, and the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe. Today, as a Life Coach she offers individual and group coaching, workshops and Forest Bathing Meetups. Credentialed by the International Coaching Federation, she presently serves on their statewide Board. Mindy loves sharing her experiential practices and talking about the wonders of nature.
Rev. Linda Guy, IFM, CSD
Linda’s first love was the woodland of her Maryland youth, and this affair with nature flourished in the Rockies during graduate school. She is now an interfaith minister (Emerson Theological Institute), a spiritual director, writer and Prayer Chaplain Emeritus at Unity. Linda offers spiritual direction as a means to awaken awareness to our divine dimension. She is particularly fond of accompanying those called to move the contemplative life out of the cloister and into the world. Linda’s life is rooted in daily meditation, and since her arrival in Prescott, she cofounded two contemplative circles, including Unity’s Midweek Meditation. She can think of few better ways to reconnect with spiritual wholeness than by turning to nature, humanity’s first cathedral.
