Lindsey Whited is passionate about connecting youth with the natural world so they can awaken to the deeper knowing that all beings are part of the sacred web of life.
Through her own journey of remembering and healing from her challenges as an adolescent, she is called to help create a culture of empowered and self loving young girls who create positive change in the world.
Lindsey was born and raised in Ohio and received her BA in Communications from the University of Akron. She moved to San Francisco 6 years ago and started working with youth of all ages in public schools, homeless shelters and urban farms as a garden and nutrition educator. She has pursued professional trainings through the Urban Permaculture Institute, Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, Art of Mentoring, and the Ecology of Leadership. She recently completed a year and a half long adulthood women's initiation process where she delved into deep self discovery and healing through ceremony, ritual and vision quest.
She now lives in Sebastopol where she does nature mentorship and Coming-of-Age circles for girls with Wild Wisdom and works as a behavioral tutor for autistic and intellectually disabled youth.
Lindsey weaves mind and body practices into her daily life with meditation, yoga, dance, singing and ceremony. She enjoys connecting with the earth through gardening, herbal medicine making, wild crafting and primitive skills.
She is so very grateful to have the opportunity to share her gifts with the Stepping Stones community as well as learn and grow in her service.
