Headshot of Laurel Kidd, MDiv at Canyon Ranch Woodside

Laurel (they/their/them) supports guests through listening, ritual, conversation, meditation, creative expression, and collaborative learning. They describe their role as “holding space and mirrors” for others, and elaborates, “The outside world does not always allow us room to process and connect, or support our looking inward for reflection.”

For more than a decade, Laurel has worked with individuals, couples, and small groups as a spiritual development facilitator, wedding and memorial service officiant, children’s group spiritual development leader, and spiritual exploration group co-leader.

Laurel specializes in pastoral care, as well as creating rituals and ceremonies. At Canyon Ranch, they guide guests in learning how to look within, open new doors, and cultivate skills to help foster resiliency and future growth. “Woodside is a place to (re)connect, to (re)discover, to grow, to heal,” Laurel shares. “Seeing guests peel back the layers and quietly burst into bloom in this transformative environment is a gift.”

In Laurel's free time, you'll likely find them caring for plants, walking their dog, reading, knitting, writing snail-mail, exploring nearby nature, spending time with friends and family, and walking labyrinths wherever they find them.
