From Story to Stewardship
The Soulful Stewardship Philosophy In a nutshell:
Personal stories of connection, creates caring, which leads to stewardship.


Our mission: To provide inspiring, educational programs and powerful tools that connect people and place, to enrich lives, engage communities and inspire stewardship.
The Soulful Stewardship Method

What is the Soulful Stewardship Method?  Is an effective 7-step creative process to discover compelling narratives that better connect people and place. It has been proven effective for individuals and the staff at National Parks, State Parks, Museums and other natural and cultural heritage sites. The Soulful Stewardship Philosophy is at the heart of these programs.

From in-depth trainings to introductory lectures,  from keynotes performances to sense of place concerts, my programs are grounded in the truth that we all have stories of connection to places, waiting to be evoked, remembered and revealed. And evoking those stories inspires caring, which inspires stewardship.

Tools, techniques and shared experiences

  • Find your creative voice through new connections to nature, history and place
  • Build community through the shared stories of connection to place
  • Restore your capacity to make a difference in the world

Why the Soulful Steward Method? From personal stories of connection comes caring, which leads to stewardship. This process helps people not just enjoy and appreciate places today, but also be inspired to participate in taking care of places for the future.

Everyone has stories of meaningful connections to places inside them waiting to be remembered, evoked and restored. These stories are what inspire caring and action. Find yours.
