 Whether facilitating strategy meetings for the Forest Service or guiding vision fasts, Gina wonders the same thing about the participants she’s guiding; where are they in this moment, where do they want to be and how can she be of service to them getting there. Gina has spent the past twenty years living in small mountain towns, working outside for the Forest Service, and dancing with light and dark that exists inside herself. She’s been known to say all she ever needed to learn she learned from the streams and land she’s walked through. She received her vision fast training through Rites of Passage, Inc. in 2014 and has been guiding leadership and veteran fasts since then. “For me, it’s being with veterans that moves me the most; they have a right to receive this ceremony as a way to heal themselves and for us, as civilians, to heal as well.”
