Gentle Guide nurtures enlightenment of the mind, body, and spirit. Our mantra is we heal ourselves, we heal the Universe.

Gentle Guide connects seekers with guides ranging in approach from the traditional to the metaphysical — empowering every one of us to take control of our health, wellness and spiritual growth.

Many ancient wisdom traditions were based upon the belief that the quest for well-being and individual growth is three-fold. Only by simultaneously developing our mental, physical, and spiritual aspects may we cultivate balance in our lives and reach our full potential — individually and collectively (flora & fauna included). This sacred idea is central to the philosophy of Gentle Guide.

We celebrate the diverse spectrum of seekers and guides from all races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, and unique combination under the sun and the stars.

The maxim "teach a person to fish" is at the foundation of our mission. It is up to each of us as individuals to take that first step, to find our teacher, the one who can teach us to fish. For then we can teach our neighbor how to fish.

While these healing arts will always retain a degree of mystery (the Dao that can be named is not the Dao) our goal is to demystify the spectrum of alternative and metaphysical practices.

Like a trailblazing hike to the mountain summit or a dive to the ocean depths — your journey is unique. As honored as we are to be your guide it is ultimately up to you to choose your path.

Land Acknowledgment

We’d like to start by acknowledging and honoring that Gentle Guide is coming to you from the unceded stolen land of descendants of the Kalapuya, Atfalati, Cowlitz, bands of the Chinook, the Multnomah, and many other indigenous tribes who’s ancestors stewarded the land known as Portland, OR.

Supportive, Inclusive, and Confidential

It is our intention to create a space centered around safety, equity, and inclusion. We would like to create a community of care, one that honors the experience of BIPOC, LGBTQI2S+, and other systemically and/or historically marginalized communities.

We intend to create safety within this container and want to assure you that all of our guides take confidentially in their sessions very seriously. Any personal information shared in your session will not be shared.


We founded Gentle Guide through our own healing journeys with the intention of catalyzing connections to guides locally and internationally.

A contemporary label for Gentle Guide would be “scrappy start-up.” We wouldn’t be anywhere but for the steadfast belief and late nights of a small but dedicated team working in collaboration with practitioners. While we have humble beginnings we’ve got a far-reaching vision of a global collective of guides working in concert to uplift the economic, social, and cultural lives of communities around the world.

Our team consists of practitioners, coding warlocks, design wizards & alchemical enthusiasts.  We’re always looking for more magical lightworkers to energize the team. If you’d like to be involved please email [email protected]


We are seekers too. Our intention is to build a co-operative collective of guides to support the economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations of the community.

We’ll organize events in areas in need and provide free services, provide support for up-and-coming guides, and coordinate education, training & information for our communities.
