is co-founder of Wildtender. A devoted student and teacher of California natural history, awareness traditions, ancestral skills and wisdom, and trail-craft/ backpacking practice, Fletcher is committed to re-connecting human beings in body, mind, and spirit with wild nature and our non-human relations.
In search of balance, the ancient sages of China walked into the woods to attune themselves with nature in its sublime integrity. The timeless wisdom uncovered in their wild wanderings was called simply Tao, “The Way.” Qi gong — the practice at the heart of Taoism — is dedicated to harmonizing body, mind and spirit with the elements of nature. In this age when so many of us feel disconnected and overwhelmed, wilderness remains a powerful healer and teacher, and qi gong can bring us back to center.
