Are you a therapist wondering how to incorporate the natural world into your practice?  Have you personally experienced the power and magic of the outdoors, yet not sure how to harness this resource to enhance your professional work?

Are you an outdoor educator who wants to learn how to use the outdoor experience therapeutically?  Are you wanting to support your students and clients to become conscious and conscientious caretakers of the earth through facilitating a deep personal connection within them?

As a part of the natural world ourselves, we hold the wisdom that allows us to intuitively tap into the natural healing potential of the earth.  Our goal is to empower you to collaborate with the natural world in creating meaningful experiences and interventions for the people with whom you work.  In this training we will provide information, experience, theory, and support for you to develop specific therapeutic wilderness tools, as well as to trust your own creative ideas.  The course will involve immersing yourself in a personal exploration of the natural world in connection to your own life goals and desires as a path to being a guide for others.
