As a psychotherapist and pastoral counselor, Dr. Audrey Boxwell has been researching the mind/body connection and their role in healing for the past 2 decades. She currently practices outside the office, taking patients and clients on walks or hikes to literally help each person move through long-standing psychological, physical and even spiritual issues with greater ease. According to Audrey, “Walking beside patients levels the playing field, eliminating the hierarchy existing in traditional office settings. This, coupled with the forward action of walking and or hiking, serve as a perfect metaphor toward possibilities, rather than getting stuck in the past, focusing on missed opportunities or long held negative beliefs."

In her new book, From Sole to Soul: Daily Prescription for Moving Forward in Your Life, Dr. Boxwell presents daily does of movement motivations in the form of bite-sized anecdotes, health facts and inspirational morsels to get readers up and out and on their way to creating a new day—one filled with personal goals and action steps to in order to "walk their talk.”

She is also the developer of PsycheHike®, an integrated physical, emotional and spiritual program that reduces stress and increases overall health by lifting brain fog and bringing clarity to long held dreams and life purpose.

“My whole life I have not been able to sit still well. My dean said, ‘Why don’t you take a hike while we’re meditating?’ I didn’t know if I should be insulted or intrigued… Sure enough, I came back from that first day and felt like I had meditated. I really felt like nothing was holding me back. I wasn’t flooded by negative thoughts. I felt elated and connected to the nature around me, which was everything I was told I would feel during meditation that I could never get to sitting still. So I decided, I can’t be the only person on the planet who can’t sit still and who processes better when in movement.” – Dr. Audrey Boxwell
