Course Description

Next Sessions to begin on April 15th, 2021

This is a great low-risk way to get started down the path as a Nature-Connected Coach.

This is a live, 6 week training that meets for 2 hours at a time through video conferencing. The focus is on deepening your own connection to nature and how that applies to work with others. In other words, your experience with the exercises will provide an applicable understanding of coaching competencies and skills.  This is an experiential training that will require a few hours of practice in between sessions.
