This blog began its life with another name, My Walk in the Woods. As I have changed over the past few years, this blog, which has been dormant for some time, needs to be revived with a new name and a new look. Welcome to The Holistic Hiker, where I combine my love of hiking with holistic living and my spiritual journey through life.

My spiritual passion has taken me on a journey from my roots as a strict Catholic, who attended Catholic school, to my current, spiritual beliefs of religious unity and love. If there is one thing I’ve learned on this journey, it’s to always follow the longing of the heart.

My heart has been longing to reach out to others, to talk about God and spirituality.  I tried ignoring my heart’s longing, but it was rather insistent. This longing can no longer be silenced. So, join me, as I journal about Hiking, holistic living, God, spirituality, religion and my own personal journey. Namaste. 🙏

GOD BLESS!

MAY YOU ALWAYS KNOW

HIS PEACE,

HIS GUIDANCE

AND 

HIS LOVE!
