This program combined the tools to connect deeply to nature and ourselves with really practical skills that we can use to serve other people.

— Karl
Nature Connected-Coaching℠ student

The program connects people to nature, with a heavy emphasis on brain change and neuroscience, and that was a big draw for me.

— Erica

I’ve gained a new community and that is inspiring—being around other people and realizing that nature is all around us all the time.
