Relational by Nature

WE offer a relational model of education, holding authentic connection to nature and the cultivation of an innate love of learning as primary mandates. All of our programs are highly experiential, held in a community context, facilitated by invested mentors and based in natural learning rhythms. This “Relational” model of education encourages healthy development, natural intelligence, an innate sense of belonging, individual genius and authentic connection to self, others and earth. Read more about our educational philosophy…

WE offer a number of courses in Bird Language, ranging from day-longs, to week-longs, to weekend-series events. Bird Language is an ancient skill that people have used to help them survive and thrive for thousands of years. The birds are the “newsfeed” of the ecosystem – they tell us where water, food, safety, or danger is. They put a soundtrack to the movements that surround us, noting the subtle energies that shift and change. In an era marked by increasing disconnection from nature, self, and others, the practice of Bird Language gives us the tools we need to be more successful in our relationships, careers, communities, and personal lives by enhancing our awareness, our capacity for deep listening, and our ability to experience empathy & compassion. Read more…

Further, the certification process provides a structure and forum in which to invigorate and enhance one’s field skills and knowledge of natural history, whether you are a biologist, citizen scientists, environmental educator, guide in ecotourism, or a regular citizen interested in the world around you. Read more…



Honoring and recognizing moments of significant transition, whether it be from season to season, from one life stage to another, or from birth to death, is critical to the holistic development of both the individual and the community. Such celebrations are a natural part of the human experience, and have been marked and acknowledged cross-culturally for millennia. These markings are elegantly and indelibly woven into the fabric of natural human development—so much so that we would not be what we are without them. WE offer a number of programs in the The Honoring Transitions field, helping mark such transitions in powerful and holistic ways.  Read more…
