OUR TEAM - Workshops, Quests, Trainings

Nature is our primary guide and teacher


However, we also have an incredible team of professionals. Passionate people who live rites of passage and transformation whole-heartedly and relentlessly.


Many are experts in their field - be it relationships, communication, neuropsychology, ecopsychology, developmental psychology, trauma, deep ecology, the practice of council, somatic work - or indigenous elders sharing the original pathway of nature as home and family, and nature as Self.


Each team is created specifically for the journey we embark on together.
