Awareness With Nature (AWN) proudly celebrates…Welcome to the 1st Newsletter Update!

January’s Theme: Practicing Gratitude

I hope you are enjoying the freshness of the New Year with reinvigorated courage and gratitude. My personal practice is to live in the present moment while approaching each day with enthusiasm, knowing there are ripe opportunities everywhere. I am grateful knowing that I will make wise use of these opportunities as they arise.

Acknowledging opportunity and practicing gratitude is also deeply integrated into my approach as a nature-connected coach. I am certain that each of us shows up in this world in our own unique way based on the attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors that we each choose. I am grateful knowing that it truly is our choice to create change in the directions we desire.

Do you choose to be grateful? To dive deeper into the benefits and nature of gratitude, see this short video on gratitude.

Being solidly grounded in nature has helped me navigate my challenges of the past year. Over the course of nine trips to Boulder (Colorado), I completed over 300 certified hours of nature-connected professional coaching training. Now I am navigating business start-up challenges of Awareness With Nature. I am very grateful for this path, opportunity, expansion of my coaching skills, and connection to people I work with. I am also grateful for you and your desires to connect with nature!

“Thank you Mindy for helping me with my triggers! I really got a lot out of our session, truly, more than my expectation. I am grateful and continue to use the mantra created for me. Thank you for your insights.”Codi Reed

“Mindy is extraordinarily insightful and connected with the world around her. Through her coaching sessions, she brings her clients into that same presence of mind and spirit, leading them to connect better both with themselves and with their own world. A simple hike with Mindy ended up being one of the most grounding, clarifying experiences, and was the push I needed to overcome my own hurdles. I’m encouraged in my own journey, and would recommend Mindy’s awesome coaching services to everyone!”Kimberly Shaffer
