Michelle has mastery of the journey. She is connected to higher realms while being grounded at the same time. A grand experience awaits the open soul.
Hands down one of the most inspirational experiences of my life. I came to Seattle in search of something and this experience helped me find it. Michelle's warm heart and open spirit made me feel extremely comfortable and confident about opening myself up. She has a well of wisdom that she draws from with Grace and Humility. If you need something to get you reconnected or or help you stay grounded, then this experience is for you. I highly recommend it to any and everyone!
Wow. What a special experience. I picked this experience because I wanted to do a hike, but I didn't have a car, so the fact that Michelle drives you out to the trail is a huge bonus. Not only was the hike surroundings beautiful, but the guided meditation and the mindful hike really helped me connect with myself and my goals. It was unexpectedly sweetly emotional. Michelle was so friendly and helpful, and I also loved meeting the other couple who was on the hike. Michelle's experience is top rated for a reason - it is a fantastic time and you should do it!
An incredibly relaxing, rejuvenating and reflective experience. The forest is breathtakingly beautiful and the hike is indeed a peaceful one. Michelle was a great guide; informative, patient and engaging. She also really helps you learn a lot about yourself from the beginning to the end. I’m sure the outcome is unique to the individual, but for me personally, I found myself imbued with creative energy throughout. I highly recommend this activity!
I’m so glad I did this! It was a wonderful experience full of great company and beautiful nature. I went into this with the expectation of seeing natural beauty, but I left with so much more! The meditative portion led by Michelle was truly eye-opening and gave me a different perspective on my life. Plus Michelle is very kind, and it was lovely spending time with the group. I highly recommend this experience!!!
Having my feet on the ground and seeing Michelle just ahead, leading us through this enchanted forest, was an experience with nature that was a welcomed break from traffic and the rush of our daily routines. It's so important to be able to disconnect from the noise that surrounds us and be able to take the time to touch and hear nature. The steady rain that accompanied us that day only added to the serenity. Thank You Michelle!
Today's entire experience was exactly the thing I needed to get myself acclimated to the outdoors of Seattle. Have recently moved from New York City, I was looking for a calm and grounding experience ( like meditation) that also included the gorgeous backdrop of nature. Michelle was an excellent host and guide! Her warm and welcoming personality was uplifting and fun! Our group of women was unique because all 4 of us were new to Seattle and instantly bonded on that commonality. Michelle led us through a thoughtful and stimulating guided meditation for our senses, a 3 mile hike, and then afterwards we shared our reflections over laughs and tasty snacks she provided. The hiking trail was easy and mostly flat. I truly enjoyed my experience so much and was a little sad when it was over. It was a special day with a great group of women. We all stepped away from our routines and out of our comfort zones to do something thing for ourselves. If you want to get out into nature and need some self reflection time in the woods, then this is the perfect way to tune into yourself and unplug from the outside world and your phone!! Do this nice thing for yourself, you'll be happy you did!
Michelle is a great spirit and has a positive energy! She is open and inviting to whomever she encounters. I am jealous of her friends who get to be around her wonderful spirit everyday! She is the perfect guide for the hiking trail! Michelle knows her way around the trail like the back of her hand. You will be lead through a meditative walk through a beautiful trail in the forest filled with water ponds, bridges, and a canopy of trees. Even though it rained during our hike, the trees made the rain into subtle drizzle, which added to our hike. The rain heightened our senses and gave a great breeze! It was the perfect weather! The meditation portion was relaxing and eye opening experience. It was a great way to relax and recharge before returning to the city. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Seattle! You should not miss out on this experience!
There needs to be more people like Michelle in the world. She's so warm, kind, welcoming - and a great facilitator and listener. I've done a lot of hikes in the area but this is definitely one of a kind. I felt so peaceful and joyous during and after this whole experience. Michelle helped me experience hiking in a more mindful way. I also met three other genuine people and I'm so grateful for this experience. Be sure to eat a solid breakfast beforehand since picnic is light and happens at the end of the hike.
Michelle was amazing! I felt calm and welcome from the moment I met her in down town Seattle. Once we met and got on the road for the hike she had such a great way of getting to know all of us. The Hike was perfect. A little wet that day, but it brought out such a crisp feeling, that I think it added to the experience. I am pretty much a local. I live in Tacoma. When I first read about this hike I knew it was something I needed after my oldest sons wedding. I was right. The calm meditative hike gave me peace and clarity that was needed after such an exciting event. I would recommend this to anyone on a vacation, business trip, or even a Staycation. Well worth it!! Thank you, Michelle.
Michelle has such a genuine and pure soul. She's obviously been through a lot, and she was able to find peace in her journey. Now, she shares her meditative experience with those who dare to join her. Michelle has such a warm presence and made us feel welcomed and safe. We never felt pressured to say more, and never felt embarrassed for not sharing enough. Time passed by so quickly, and unfortunately the experience came to an end after only three hours. Thank you Michelle for reminding us to take a step back from our hectic lives in order to simply enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer us.
I booked this experience before I even booked my plane ticket to Seattle because it sounded exactly like what I wanted my trip to Seattle to be- relaxed, adventurous and awakening. Michelle is a great host, and the experience was fantastic. Not only did I get a guide to take me out on a hike, but also got to meet 3 other amazing people to share a morning with. If mindfulness and meditation and hiking are your things, you have to go- well worth it- everybody could use a silent hike in nature surrounded by kindness and support of others :)
Michelle was knowledgeable, welcoming, and took a genuine interest in making sure every member of the group felt fulfilled. The entire experience was beneficial and very well conducted. In my opinion, it would fit well into anyone's spiritual or personal journey. I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and confident afterwords.
Michelle was upbeat and positive. It's obvious how much she loves leading others through nature as a mean for wellness. Her meditation was uplifting and easy to follow, not at all hard core or intimidating as others have been. The walk was beautiful and the meditation ensured we were also taking in the scents and sounds of the forest. We walked in unsure and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you!
Michelle took us to a beautiful area right outside of Seattle. We started out with a visualization to get our heads in a place to be open and appreciate the hike we were about to embark on. Once the hike began I was able to get in touch with nature and enjoy the nature areas I was surrounded by. Everyone went at their own pace on the peaceful trail we took, but Michelle kept an eye on everyone who moved at a slower pace. After our hike was over we had a picnic in a nice area and those who wanted to discussed how the experience effected them. I would go on this experience again when I return to Seattle. It was so refreshing. Thank you Michelle
I booked Michelle's guided, meditative hiking tour because I sensed it'd be right up my alley as I have cultivated my own meditation practice for the past seven years. Michelle's tour was a great way to spend a morning. She is welcoming, warm, personable and down-to-earth. Regarding the meditation and hike, she positively reinforced good things that my own practice is helping me cultivate, and she also planted some new seeds! :-) This activity was a wonderful way to step away from routines, deadlines hustle and bustle, and instead get more deeply in tune with your inner self.
What a beautiful experience. Michelle is such a genuinely kindhearted person. I'm beyond glad we were able to spend the morning with her. We started the morning out with some meditation to ground ourselves before our silent meditative hike. The trail itself was incredible. It was a great one for beginner hikers as it was not at all grueling. After the hike, we reflected with a light lunch. Great time with great people. Thank you, Michelle!
The meditation hike started with Michelle guiding the group through our five senses' perception of the environment. I loved the concept for the whole process reawakens the inner self. The hike was done in meditation allowing you take it all and reflect on life's up and down Michelle is certainly gifted in what she does. I recommend meditation hike highly!! I promise you, you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much Michelle for an enlightening experience.
This was a great experience and Michelle was an excellent guide on this little journey. We didn't know exactly what to expect but knew this could be whatever we wanted it to be; from a simple hike, to full-on inner experience and that put us at ease. We were a four person group where only one other and myself had minimal experience with meditation. Not only did Michelle pick us up from our hotel and drive us our to the forest and trails, she also took the time to talk to, and get to know us. I feel like she adequately gauged our levels and who we were and made the experience the best it could be out of that. We spent five days in Seattle and this was the only day it was lightly drizzling. Fortunately, this only made our hike a better experience. The sound of rain hitting the leaves opened up a whole new dimension to the experience. Prior to the hike we did a guided meditation through all five senses and this helped make me more aware of the surroundings. The hike was a simple, no pressure journey through the trails. It was everything from quiet, to us all chatting, to us stopping constantly to take photos. Never once was Michelle annoyed at us, she was happy to let us do our thing. After the hike she shared a light meal of snacks at a picnic table and food is always the cherry on top with us :D I'd highly recommend this for anyone on vacation, whether traveling alone, or in a small group. You can tell Michelle is passionate about doing this, and we enjoyed spending time with her as much as I hope she did with us.
Michelle is such a loving and kind soul; she made the entire experience so wonderful and pleasant. This was my first time visiting Seattle and also booking an Airbnb "experience." Michelle was so friendly, positive and accommodating. Since we were visiting from out of state and didn't rent a car, she offered to pick us up from our downtown hotel the morning of the hike. She really makes an effort to get to know you, which I dig. I loved how personable she made our hike and allowed us to "modify" our meditative experience. Not everyone in our group are big into mediation and weren't really keen on a silent hike. Michelle was 100% understanding and said she caters each experience to each individual group. I really enjoyed the beginning meditation session; it was so peaceful and relaxing. The particular area she drove us to (about 40 mins East of Seattle) was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and serene. Thank you Michelle for everything, it was a pleasure meeting you and experiencing nature with you!
