Compassion Fatigue Healing Hike

Free healing hike opportunity brought to by an Arts and Wellness grant from Wellness in Action and led by Raynelle Rino

This guided Compassion Fatigue Healing Hike provides a safe space in nature for community-based service providers to process and release any attached or residual energies taken on from their practice so they can sustain their daily capacities.

This hike is designed to

  • safely release the energies that cause us harm as practitioners

  • understand the tools available to us from nature as a daily self-care practice

  • experience what nature teaches us about our ability to heal ourselves and recover from Compassion Fatigue so we can better serve our communities


With unique and profound guidance from Transformational Coach Raynelle Rino, participants will be guided through the rituals and exercises aimed at providing opportunities to heal both physical and emotional pain with the permission of Mother Nature’s teachings. A series of guided meditative walks and talking circles will support an intentional process of reconnecting more deeply to nature, which in turn allows for a reconnection to true self.

Participants will have the opportunity to

  • Reinforce for themselves, the importance of self-care and time in connection with nature

  • Have a space for personal and private reflection and introspection

  • Let go of the lessons that no longer serve them and move forward with more space for transformation

Other opportunities that may present themselves during this hike are

  • Moments of ancestral healing, remembering, acknowledging

  • Intuitive energy healing, emotional hangovers, downloading or releasing

  • Restorative justice

  • Shared vicarious joy

This hike will be located in a local park on a beginners level trail. All details for preparation and logistical information will be provided after registration. Light snacks will be provided.
