Mark Roule is a Forest Therapy Guide certified by the Association of Nature & Forest Therapists. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Kripalu School of Mindful Outdoor Leadership in Stockbridge, Massachusetts where he has served as lead faculty. His passion for nature connection and preservation led to the re-wilding of a once concrete-covered lot in Isabela, Puerto Rico where he and his partner, Daisy Lee, removed giant truckloads of concrete and planted over 60 palms and a variety of fruit trees in their reforestation efforts. This has resulted in the return of wildlife as well as friendly neighbors partaking in the abundance of coconuts and mangoes. Mark's love of surfing and nature connection led him to the Caribbean where he and Daisy create Qigong programs for the Shift Network and where they are building the Radiant Lotus Retreat Center.
