Fletcher Tucker

Retreat Leader

Fletcher was raised by the foggy redwood ravines and fragrant chaparral bluffs of Big Sur, California. Fletcher is a lifelong student of California natural history, a lover of Buddhist and Taoist poetry and philosophy, and a multidisciplinary artist and writer (fletchertucker.com). Fletcher is teaching faculty at the Esalen Institute and the co-founder of Wildtender (wildtender.com), an organization offering immersive wilderness programs that cultivate intimacy with the earth and connect with wisdom traditions. Fletcher’s creative and pedagogic work is dedicated to the re-enchantment of the natural world, to the revitalization of place-based living, and to facilitating interbeing with the wild.
