Juan Lazo Bautista grew up both in Oaxaca, Mexico, and California where he experienced different ways of living and enjoying the natural environment. His indigneous customs and family centered upbringing instilled strong values of conservation and motivate today much of his practice around nature and forest therapy, inviting participants to explore relationship with themselves, others and their environment. He understands these experiences as an extension of healthy community building and is eager to share this practice with others. Juan is equally excited to reimagine our world systems and co-create healthier realities for future generations. He is an avid doodler, bike rider, hammock lounger and vegetarian food fanatic.
