Guide Lindsey Mitchell is passionate about deep nature connection mentoring. She started working with the San Luis Obispo based nature school, Outside Now, in 2008 where she was blessed to work with master "coyote" mentors. This inspired her to spend two years at the Regenerative Design Institute in Bolinas studying nature connection philosophy, tracking, primitive skills, the art of council, rites of passage, permaculture design, and so much more. She is deeply grateful for the opportunity to share this knowledge with her community. She lives in San Luis Obispo and continues to work with Outside Now. When she's not mentoring kids outside, you can usually find her at her favorite sit spot listening to the birds or in the ocean.
The passion Guide Sami Ryan brings to 1Rev is a strong desire to connect young people to their physical and emotional selves. While obtaining her Bachelor's in Psychology and Dance, she found the constant places of overlap between the well-being of her body and her emotional state. Through adventuring in nature, Sami believes that we have great potential to help young people learn how to check in with their state of being and through that, decide how they want to show up in the world. With experience as a horsemanship instructor, a behavioral coach, an avid camper, a mountain biker, and a self-proclaimed homesteader, Sami is excited to bring her diverse background of experiences to 1Rev.
