Wendy Johnston – “The Healing Power of Nature”

_0011_wendy johnstonIn 2013, Wendy Johnston decided to take a hike, more accurately a 2,700 mile journey of a life time. Wendy hiked the Pacific Crest Trail, the same trail Cheryl Strayed wrote about in her book “Wild”. After her 5 month long hike, Wendy decided to share what she learned. Living and walking on a long trail for months where so much of the external stimuli is eliminated, allows for time and space to receive lessons. The story she tells is personal, spiritual, and ultimately about reclaiming one’s life.
