I take a deep breath. The cool, moist air of this verdant, cloud-covered forest rushes in, filling my lungs and all the cells of my body. I feel my muscles relax as I exhale the stress, tension and grief in my body. My body hurts. It’s tight and has been holding on to so much.…
Welcome! I am Karen Joy Fletcher and am passionate about healthy living, adventure, deep nature connection, and helping people live lives that cultivate their own aliveness, wellbeing and inner Joy.
This is our natural state. When sauntering in ancient forest, soaking in the splendor of newly blossomed wild flowers in an alpine meadow, or sitting in awe next to a wild, surging river of radiant sparkling blue-green glacial waters, you feel the Joy, Aliveness and Wellness of Nature all around you – and inside you. We are nature and I am passionate about sharing simple tools, practices and experiences that allow these qualities to naturally bubble up and flourish from within.
I do this through my lifetime love, study and sharing of Qigong and Chinese medicine. I do this through movement, training and nature connection practices, such as Earthgym. I do this through leading Qigong & Wilderness retreat trips in the U.S. and China. I do this through writing, reflection, teaching and sharing as much as I can, and living my life in a way that cultivates and strengthens these qualities in me each and every day!
My name has always shared with me my calling, yet it wasn’t until I have lived through my own dark nights of the soul and have been on my own soul’s quest for years, that I understood. I am here to share Joy in the fullest sense of the word.
And I can support you through group lessons, private lessons, coaching, retreat trips in Qigong, Earthgym, Nature Connection and bringing wonder and aliveness back into your daily life.
Please join me in saying YES to a lifetime of wonder, nourishment, vitality, wellbeing and JOY!
