Meet the AitW Teachers

Skilled Nature Meditation Teachers

From Around the World

AitW teachers all care deeply about the earth, have a strong meditation practice, and feel called to share the power of contemplative practice in the outdoors with others. They participate in an intensive, year-long apprenticeship training, including mentorship by our founder Mark Coleman, in order to skillfully offer a wide variety of nature-based meditation programs to the public. Get to know our teachers below, and check out their upcoming events on our calendar.
