Nancy Jane

Nancy is an ecopsychologist, wilderness guide, and council facilitator. She began her study of wilderness rites of passage in 1981 and has been following this calling ever since. Nancy leads youth and adult vision fasts and has pioneered wilderness rites of passage in school settings. Her intention is to listen deeply in support of others’ connection to nature and spirit; to hold the deepest, widest container of safety and acceptance for others; and to empower them in the full expression of who they are. Leading up to and following the death of her mother 7 years ago, Nancy has been immersed in the rich, though challenging, underworld of death's teachings and the potential for an awakened life such an experience brings. She has also cultivated her passion for understanding and healing ancestral and collective trauma through studies with Thomas Hubl and a year-long training program in Israel on facilitating transgenerational trauma for groups.

For many years a naturalist and forester, Nancy is also an author, an editor, and currently adjunct faculty at Naropa University, where she teaches in the graduate Ecopsychology Department. She has an M.A. in Transpersonal Ecopsychology.

Nancy is certified in Wilderness First Aid.
