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.
