Nancy Jane (she/her) is an educator, 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, has pioneered wilderness rites of passage in school settings, and currently guides quests for two Waldorf high schools, as well as the School of Lost Borders and Naropa University. 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. Nancy has been immersed in the rich, though challenging, underworld of death’s teachings and the exploration of collective and ancestral trauma. 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 program. She is certified in Wilderness First Aid.
