In the words of SRG hikers:

“It was a truly memorable trip - amazing vistas, beautiful forests, fascinating antiquities, and a perfect place to reflect and converse with my inner thoughts.
  A very personal accomplishment for me just to have walked so far.  I loved it!”

“Great trip! I will highly recommend it to anyone!  Every step was just beautiful.”

“What a great trip and nostalgic way for me to visit the English countryside.  Through wooded lanes, ancient ruins, incredible historic churches, and just enjoying fields of sheep, cows, and horses.  A perfect way to take in the beauty of England and have a moment to just walk and reflect on our lives.  Thank you Shawn and Andy.”


"We cannot become ourselves, by ourselves.” ~Claire Zammit


It is true that when one hikes in nature for several days at a time, whatever is lurking in our consciousness, and sometimes even our subconsciousness, comes forward with great clarity.  The awareness might be a behavior pattern we want to change.  A dream we are wanting to pursue.  The path not taken that we are now wanting to take.  A creative insight that we want to act on.  A relationship that needs tending to, and sometimes that relationship is the one we have with ourself.  Whatever has come forward, it feels clear.  And we probably even know what we need to do to act on what has become clear, but for a variety of reasons we don’t, aren’t or think we can’t.  The reason for that is usually FEAR. Fear is generated on the inside, and not outside of us.  


I am here to help heal and resolve the patterns, misbeliefs, misidentifications and misunderstandings that make up the narrative and the fear that is holding you back. If it is time for you to move forward and live in that clarity that was revealed, you will feel it.  If you’re ready to respond to what nature has shown you and need some help navigating the process, I am here to help with a set of world class skills and experiences to support you in achieving it. 


Contact me at Shawn@ShawnRichardsonGlobal if you want to talk about what we can accomplish for you, together.  Give yourself the permission to be happy.  To be successful.  To be alive!



I have been climbing mountains and hiking trails all over the world for the past 10 years.  There is no arguing that nature heals us and helps us know what we need to know about ourselves and our lives, at the time we need to know it. I refer to this awareness phenomenon as the inner experience that happens concurrently with the physical experience of hiking/mountaineering.

For me, the powerful and beautiful inner experiences are the best part of outdoor adventuring.  So transformational and uplifting are they that I was inspired to study 4 years of spiritual psychology, as well as obtain certification in life coaching methods, to better understand the psychological and experiential dynamic I feel, and to support others in their journeys.
