I’m Regina Reiter and ……….

I know what you’re going through.  I yearned for decades to spend extended time outdoors where I felt whole, alive, connected to a higher purpose. I was raising children, managing a household, working at jobs that were satisfying – but not deeply fulfilling.


“When could I get to do what really made my heart sing?” I lamented. I would stand at the kitchen sink, with a baby in the backpack carrier, dreaming of backpacking for real! I took my kids camping, homeschooled them so we could learn outside, worked at the local nature center. It was never enough outdoor time! The kids grew up and I didn’t want to wait any longer.

I realized that the Appalachian Trail was just two hours away, and I went for a visit. In my first  step on that narrow path, I felt a rush of energy and affirmed “This is where I want to walk!” I didn’t know the first thing about the trail or about backpacking! I did have one thing going for me, though: my husband wanted to hike too.

It took another seven years to fulfill that dream!  Along the way I learned how to wait, how to use each day to keep the dream alive, how to pack, how to prepare food. There were setbacks, challenges, and disappointments that all had to be navigated.  Over five years, in increasingly longer sections, we completed almost 700 miles of the trail.

That’s when my husband abandoned our AT dream. “I don’t think I care if I finish the whole thing,” he said. I realized that I’d have to do the rest myself.

What helped me most to stay focused and not give up was the tools of Radical Forgiveness I was learning. They kept me going. They helped me sort out my feelings, stop blaming others for what was blocking me. I realized there could be different ways of looking at things.

On June 27, 2007, I stood atop Mt Katahdin, Maine at the beginning of my journey……. or at least what I thought was the beginning.  Now, I know that when the journey truly began was on that first step at Woody Gap 7 years earlier!  ALL of the preparation, transformation, planning, testing, and relationship shifting was PART of my Appalachian Trail Journey.

All of that is what I now see as the Inner Journey that evokes, supports, and coincides with my Outer Journey.

Since my thruhike in 2007, I’ve talked with thousands of AT hikers while working as a ridgerunner on the trail.  The ones who seem satisfied and fulfilled by their journey are the ones who are aware of this Inner Journey.

  • They have a “purpose” that keeps them focused.
  • They have tools for shifting their energy when blocks, delays, disappointments arise in their path.
  • They’ve orchestrated their Inner Journey.
  • They have support from a community.


This is why I’ve developed

What People Say:

“I am Regina’s sister. I think that a testimonial from a sister holds a lot of weight because I’m just learning to be Cactus, Claudia and Candy in the Snowopen with my biological family. I find that every time I call her when I’m unhappy about something, that she is more and more skillful each time. I am feeling more and more safe and confident that I won’t be judged. When we talk now, our sister history is totally put aside and she is present, skillful, and compassionate, and that’s what I’m really yearning for when I’m suffering. She’s transforming a competitive sister relationship into a very compassionate, skillful and reliable one and I’m so grateful.” Claudia Bernard


“I had feelings bottled up inside that I thought I had dealt with already. The walk with Regina allowed them to come ouEvelyn2b1044t. The 13 steps tool helped me realize how to accept them and not judge them and to be able to keep that in mind as I continue to work on these feelings. In the long run, I have the tools to continue to grow and really forgive myself in the end. ” Evelyn Chiu Owner, Yogo Ono  


FB_IMG_1467154596400“A mutual friend demanded that I get to know Regina when I was attempting to train my uncooperative body to go on a hiking trip in Scotland with my son.  My friend could see that Regina had the skills to assist me on preparing my body for the trail. She could also see that Regina had the knowledge and ability to assist me with uncovering whatever I had in my past that would emotionally, mentally, and spiritually block me from making the breakthroughs needed to complete this memorable trip.  Indeed, Regina’s and my relationship became one of looking for the source of joy in the Inner Journey that is found when sometimes looking for something else.  Regina’s unique, calm, unassuming presence and comments would knock my socks off. She was always supportive, always loving, always encouraging, and always looking for what she could provide for me.”  Mary Campbell, author of This
