As a writer, multidisciplinary artist, and musician, Fletcher’s creative practice engages deeply with place.

Fletcher’s inner work includes ongoing explorations in Buddhist and Taoist practices/philosophy; over a decade of study in the Gestalt lineage of Esalen Institute co-founder Dick Price; and two decades of engagement with the Earth-reverent, spiritual traditions of his own Nordic and Celtic ancestors.
