Thanks again for visiting YourLifeNature.com
Helping people bring more of nature’s contemplative power, energy and stories into their lives through photography is just one of the ways I help people sustain and revitalize their connections to the natural world.
Here’s how I help people and groups connect more consistently with nature:
YourLifeNature™ Mentoring Programs.
These help you connect more fully and deeply with nature, no matter where you are in life. I am passionate in serving as a knowledgeable, skilled, patient experienced mentor and guide to help you make nature connection a vital, harmonious, joyful and peaceful part of your life, too!
My experience as an outdoor and international educator, Yellowstone park ranger, naturalist guide and entrepreneur have helped me create a process that helps you quickly connect with and relax in the beauty of the natural world, and better equips you for navigating life changes, challenges and opportunities through your deepened connection with nature. Learn more in the Work with Hobie section of this website.
Guided Tours of National Parks and Other Protected Places.
I lead tours with a select number of reputable, commercially permitted travel companies to Yellowstone and other protected places in the Northern U.S Rockies, Great Plains, Pacific Northwest and Desert Southwest. These include custom as well as catalog departures, so please contact me if you desire more information. Thank you!
Speaker, Trainer, Event and Retreat Facilitator.
Nature is waiting for you to show up and be present, no matter where your feet are, and I help people and groups bring this to life in practical and meaningful ways. In June 2017 I co-led an inaugural Yellowstone LGBT Retreat through the Yellowstone Forever Institute at the Lamar Buffalo Ranch, and we intend to offer similar retreats there and elsewhere moving forward. I am experienced at speaking with, engaging and inspiring a wide variety of audiences on life and nature connection themes and topics.
If you’re ready to learn from nature and embrace change more confidently, courageously and pro-actively, remember that there’s help from people who are traveling a similar life path to yours, who are a ways further down the road.
Be your bad-ass independent, natural, true, authentic self. The world is waiting, and it is indeed a lonelier and darker world without each and every one of our lights shining. Nature connection helps us cut through b.s. and overwhelm, and focus on what’s really important in our lives.
And the best part is that it’s never too late to get started!
Some people have special and unusual gifts that defy description. Hobie Hare is one such person. It is almost impossible to categorize what and how Hobie does what he does. His gentle spirit, deep love of nature, poetic command of language, and mesmerizing voice literally pull you away from your current circumstances and take you into nature’s healing embrace. Hobie’s byline best captures his gift: Connecting you with nature, no matter where your feet are.
Introduced by a mutual friend, I was at first unclear about what he did and how we might collaborate on our mutual love of nature. I simply didn’t understand the full breadth and depth of his talents. He is more than a nature photographer, he is more than a guide who takes clients from across the globe on trips through Yellowstone National Park; he is more than a writer and curator of information about nature, he is more than a personal coach.
In order to better understand, I decided to participate in a nature connection sit spot teleconference with Hobie. I was, to say the least, skeptical. How could a conference call connect me to nature? As soon as everyone was “present” Hobie asked us to sit quietly and listen. He then used his calm voice and his ability to capture images in words to take us all on a journey into our own special nature place to replenish our souls.
I was amazed. This was something that never would have occurred to me. I personally need only step outside my door to experience nature’s healing touch with all of my senses, but my life is unusual and my physical connection to nature is the exception, not the rule for much of humanity. To witness Hobie’s ability to emotionally and spiritually connect people with nature in the absence of nature’s physical presence, or even of a visual focal point, made me see-or should I say hear-things differently. It made me want to get Hobie involved with our community.
When we are denied the personal joy and enrichment that being in nature bestows because life’s circumstances prevent us, would it not be wonderful to let someone like Hobie guide us back mentally and emotionally, no matter where our feet are?

In her book, The Nature Fix, Florence Williams sums up the research and lesons by saying “Go outside, often, sometimes in wild places. Bring friends or not. Breathe.”
This pandemic is really demonstrating for many this importance of connecting to nature, but the reality is that we don’t all have the same amount of nature available to us. We can feel like we are all out of options, frustrated and disconnected.
My friend and peer, Hobie Hare, helps people connect to nature. He’s adept at helping them feel that connection whether he ‘s guiding them through one of our amazing national parks or they are in a high-rise in a big city.
If you’ve been feeling disconnected from our world during this time, reach out and chat with Hobie to see if he can help..

“Hobie offers a tuned balance of self-exploration and experiential education in the natural world. He draws upon his own personal connection to nature and human experience evoking meaningful bonds between body, mind and Earth. Through the recognition of beauty he attaches greater meaning to the lives we lead and the love we feel.”
