    Here's what participants are saying:

    “This program has true holistic integrity. The teachings, the teachers, the venue and even the food were all in alignment with healthy eco-consciousness. There was a fabulous balance of practical and sacred approaches to ecotherapy both from a personal and clinical perspective.  The curriculum was applicable to those who are newly acquainted to the natural world and also to those who have an abiding devotion to ecotherapy. I highly recommend this program for individual and collective evolution as a practitioner and as a human on this planet, at this time.

    Sarita Jessica Benn-Towle AMFT

    "A transformative gift of inspiration, courage, vulnerability, authenticity, and vital connection...."

    Paula Pappajohn, MA, RCC

    “This program reignited my connection with the natural world. It gave me practical knowledge and skills to help others discover and strengthen their connections with self, others, and other-than-human beings. This program was life-changing and transformative”.
