Noël Vietor

Retreat Leader

Noël is the co-founder of Wildtender (, an organization offering immersive wilderness programs that cultivate intimacy with the earth, connect with wisdom traditions, and nurture human wholeness. Her work and interests are dedicated to helping people relate more meaningfully with the land, themselves and each other. Noël found a deep sense of belonging in the Big Sur wild while hiking the steep trails, learning the history and stories of the place, and experimenting with wildcrafting and homestead arts. Noël is teaching faculty at the Esalen Institute.
