We will explore empirical evidence of the positive effects of nature on emotional and physical well-being. From beneficial bacteria in the soil we touch, to breathing in the aromatics of plants and trees, to listening to the calming quality of birdsong, nature measurably impacts our health. We’ll discuss some of the compelling science and some ideas for helping clients connect to nature in a way that soothes and heals. 

Beyond the benefits to our health, nature can inspire us to do greater things. Being in the outdoors can help clients tap into positive emotions, which can open their eyes to new pathways and resources they are not fully utilizing. 

And, in nature, we can seek challenge. Nature provides an arena where adventures can unfold. We will talk about ways clients can discover their growth-promoting adventures. 

* You will learn about scientific evidence that supports how nature positively impacts our health and well-being. 

* You will learn about resources you can share with clients to help them better utilize the healing powers of the outdoors. 

* You will learn about how nature can lead to inspiration, creating a space for your clients to create more expansive visions and take on more growth opportunities. 

* You will learn about resources that you can share with clients to help them use nature experiences to tap into inspiration. 

* You will learn how clients can use outdoor adventure as a tool for growth.
