I am a writer, coach, retired mental health counselor, and author of the award-winning book The Mindful Hiker, and, the Amazon best seller in the Nature and Ecology categories, Into the Woods…and Beyond.
I’ve also written Hidden Walks in the East Bay and Marin and The Mindful Golfer. My interests range from photography to politics to the environment to Buddhist dharma to psychology to golf to philosophy to nutrition and exercise to aging to music to the sights and sounds of nature. I also blog at www.mindfulgolfer.com, www.stephenaltschuler.com, and breakablenews.substack.com.
