Healing through Nature Connection-Beta

Learn Research-based Practices to Relieve Stress and Anxiety


Are you the one?

When you’re heavily stressed and feeling anxious, the noise in your head gets louder, and it’s hard to hear or connect with anyone or anything.

We get it! 'Cuz we've been there!

We all want a life that feels meaningful, healthy, and balanced. Are you stuck in the perpetual cycle of stress and anxiety? Feel disconnected? Or have that awful feeling of a pit in your stomach?

It can be difficult to see our way out or know where to start. So, how do we deal with this?

We, the course creators, learned how to alleviate our anxiety disorders through nature-based practices we researched in grad school and applied to our own lives.

We teach you these experiential exercises so you can live a more meaningful, less anxious life.

We live in a fast-paced, stressful and overwhelming modern-day world. Our tech-driven society causes disconnection -- from ourselves, each other, and nature. For many of us, this leads to stress and anxiety. When we experience these we often find ourselves incapacitated, distracted and unable to do simple things. And, our relationships suffer because we can’t communicate or connect. Our overall quality of life is affected, and this can lead to depression.


By learning these practices, you’ll gain:

  • An improved quality of life
  • Overall well-being (physical, mental and emotional)
  • The ability to better manage stress and anxiety through applied practices
  • Greater relaxation and more meaningful experiences
  • Deep connections that lead to balance and peace

This course offers:

  • A transformative process with community engagement
  • Scientifically proven nature-based practices for improved health
  • Small cohort for deep-dive sharing and connection
  • A reservoir of tools to slow down, quiet the mind, soften into the body and create more ease in your daily life
  • Experiential coursework delivered via video content, supplemental resources, meditation audio, weekly assignments and discussions
  • A supportive, cohort community where you can discuss your experiences. It's moderated by
