Mountain Zen Den

for Personal Growth and Simple Living

through the beauty and benefits of the Natural World.

Here you’ll find helpful resources & inspiration ~ simple ideas, tips, stories, courses and meditations for living a rich life ~ full of wealth, purpose, mindfulness and meaning.

Life just keeps getting busier and busier.  Hurry, worry and rush are the norm.  Like the proverbial roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes!

This “unnatural” stress is creating a sickness, not just in the individual, but in our society as a whole.

We are losing our sense of connectedness, with Nature and with each other, with our sense of meaning and purpose.

We’ve gotten away from the core of who we are and where we came from.

We are literally killing ourselves through unneeded worry, mindlessness and stress.

The answer? Mountain Zen Den*

Over time we have gone inside, shut the doors and windows, gradually alienating ourselves from the beautiful natural world. We are distanced from the smell of wildflowers, sage and pine, the feel of grass through our toes and of rough bark, the sound of the wind through the trees and the forest streams.

We’ve lost sight of the calm, azure sky filled with white, dreamy clouds overhead.  We have cut off the ties to our original source of joy, security and well-being – Mother Nature.


Think about it, in the Garden ~ Love and Simplicity. Joy and Tranquility. In the wake of the “progress” and smog of the Industrial Revolution…well, you get the picture.


The Naturalists like Thoreau, Emerson, Whitman and John Muir were deeply connected to the Source of calm and depth, balance and purpose through Nature. This wasn’t by accident.  They were aware and purposeful in putting themselves in the natural environment.


Mountain Zen Den is a return to the Natural.  A daily dose of sanity, and “A Moment of “Ahhh…” to help restore and renew the soul within.


Today, while the idea of meditation is becoming more and more popular, for the average person, it is still a somewhat strange, mysterious and “unattainable” concept.

 Meditation for self-development, health, happiness & well-being

Find your super power through Nature

Here are just few of the Benefits of Connectedness with Nature & Meditation done right ~

  • More focus, allowing you to accomplish more in a shorter period of time (Like make more $ or spend time with your family)

  • Significantly reduce your stress levels

  • Lower your blood pressure

  • Control your thoughts and behaviors

  • Improve your relationships

  • Increase your confidence

  • Boost your health

  • Advance your income

  • Elevate your happiness & outlook on life

The good news is that it’s a lot simpler than you think.


Without trying to oversimplify it, meditation really boils down to this:

Slow down.



Just be aware of your thoughts without labels or judgment.  Simply Be (Present in the Moment).

Sounds simple right?

It is.  But it’s not necessarily easy.  With all the noisy, busy, negative influences and energy going on all around us in the modern world, sometimes our “Tuner” can only pick up cacophony and static.  This is where Nature comes to the rescue.

It is said that it only takes a hundred feet of mountain stream over rocks to purify and restore its waters for drinking.  When under the influence of Nature, the body, mind and soul are purified in the same way.

You can now buy healthy, delicious meals online, delivered to your door, saving you time and energy, so you have one less thing to be frustrated or have to worry about.

So with Mountain Zen Den.  We help create the inspiration, environment and resources to help guide you through simple natural meditations to use on a daily basis.  This is done in a variety of ways, facilitating your personal growth & self development, helping you lead a healthier, more fulfilling life.

We know what its like trying to establish a meditation routine.  Especially for Beginners.

By re-learning and applying what the naturalists, philosophers and ancient wisdom seekers have known and taught for centuries, we offer you a resource to finally gain self-mastery, and the power over your life that it takes to achieve your dreams.

You know that deep inside you have been on a quest for a better way, not only to meditate, but to achieve your dreams and live a rich and meaningful life.  Let it begin here today!


“The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes.  It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches.  It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day.  What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.” ~ Michael Josephson
