At home in the world through Nature Journey
As an Outdoor Educator, Naturalist, and Lifelong Meditator, I've created a series of unique outdoor experiences that blend mindfulness meditation practices into a nature immersion adventure that will ignite in you a sense of awe and wonder and inspire a deeper feeling of connection. Perfect for those looking to re-wild, renew, reconnect with their wild child archetype.
No previous experience is needed, just an interest in spending time outdoors connecting your mind/body/spirit with the natural world.
"Marnie led me through a guided meditation on the banks of the Rio Grande with Sandhill Cranes and Canada Geese as a backdrop. Typically when I go into nature, I'm mountain biking, trail running, or moving through the landscape with another purpose. This slowed me down and helped me feel profoundly connected. It was a marvelous experience! I emerged from the experience richer for it and filled with gratitude."

You are worth it!
These Home Retreats are designed to appeal to new and experienced meditators alike! Together, we'll explore the informal side of mindfulness meditation and engage in practices that support our daily lives. Some themes of recent retreats: Mindful Movement, Mindful Eating, Digital Mindfulness, and relating to chores with mindful awareness. Oftentimes, mindfulness practice focuses strictly on the formal meditation component. One way to bring a mindful lifestyle off the cushion is to explore how it is we relate to the mundane tasks that occupy our time. Now that we spend more time than ever at home, these retreats can transform our relationship to #stayinghome and the new realities of modern life.
"Marnie Rehn's Guided Meditation this weekend was so helpful. I've been meditating for years, but in current times I've felt the need for more centering and added this experience. I'm so glad I did! Practicing bringing mindfulness to activities, not just meditation, truly teaches how to bring more calm into everyday activities. We really need these skills now more than ever."
Unique Programming for groups, business, institutions
It's always a delight to create content specific to a client's needs.
I can run private mindfulness retreats and specialized programming for your group, organization/business or school. I offer a multi-week Introductory Mindfulness Course, staff development workshops, or team building retreats; All designed to provide mindfulness skills. When individuals on a team are engaged in deepening their own emotional regulation skills, they become more coherent individuals who connect in healthier more productive communication and responses to stress.

I've facilitated meaningful programs in public & private schools, with museums, non-profits, and with a variety of health-field and professional institutions.
"The entire staff at Acequia Animal Hospital was thrilled with their recent participation in a nature-based mindfulness retreat guided by Marnie Rehn. We got to explore the beautiful Bosque by the Rio Grande, stopping several times along the way for moments of reflection and connection with our workmates. We were a COVID weary group that Marnie revived by giving us skills for re- grounding, renewal and resilience to apply in our everyday lives and together as a team. Marnie tailored the gathering to our needs, and we left the experience having more compassion and a greater appreciation for the other members of our team. I would highly recommend to any manager who is looking for a creative way to make on huge, positive impact on their staff"
