Does stepping outside bring you closer to your Truest Self? Do you feel most energized, happy, inspired and at peace when you get out into nature?

If you say an emphatic YES to this, then you belong in our tribe...!

Who are we? We are mostly women, but we are not exclusively so. We gather regularly, in community, in the outdoors. We come together with intention, compassion, inspiration and good cheer. We share our skills, our stories, our challenges and triumphs - and we bear witness to each other. We explore the trails, streams, beaches, gardens, blueberry fields, mountains and back roads of our home towns as a way to shed the stress of our lives, improve our wellness, connect with nature and be an active part of this community.

We share outdoor experiences together - hiking, walking, biking, kayaking...writing, snowshoeing, skiing, exploring. Intentional, inclusive, fun, adventurous...

We pay attention. Sometimes we create cool things, or write in our journals. We spend moments alone with our thoughts. We read poetry and identify birds, and trees, and rocks. We come together a few times a year in the evening around a fire, or in a hut somewhere to get away from it all.

We are all - truly - Happier Outside.

You can follow us on social media feeds (Facebook, Instagram) for free. You are also welcome to sign up for our Virtual Community emails for free - we send out an email once a month with a curated collection of stuff that's inspiring us right now. Gratis. SIGN UP RIGHT HERE:
