Would you like to create more
engaging, enlivening, and impactful online sessions and programs?
Join us to learn a wealth of
simple, nature-based practices you can use to help yourself and your clients stay healthy, happy, and calm through challenging times.
Many of us are struggling with chronic stress, anxiety, or depression, partly due to the social isolation of the pandemic. Nature offers some of the best medicine for our mental and physical health, but it can be hard to get outside due to winter weather and shelter-in-place restrictions.
Connecting with nature indoors offers a creative solution. Gazing out the window at a tree, visualizing ourselves in a beloved place outdoors, or exploring a special stone with all our senses offers some of the same benefits as being out in a natural setting. Even small amounts of contact with nature in the midst of a city can help keep our minds calm, our bodies healthy, and our spirits bright.
In this nurturing yet informative program, Ecotherapists Kai Siedenburg and Ariana Candell will share a treasure trove of practices for connecting with the healing power of nature anytime, anywhere—even in a windowless building and on Zoom! You will experience six practices and receive simple yet potent tools you can use to help yourself and others be more relaxed, more resourced, and more available for learning and healing while you are online.
In just two hours, you will learn:
• Five ways to reduce stress and anxiety in less than a minute
• How to reduce Zoom fatigue and leave participants feeling relaxed and revitalized
• A rich mix of practices for connecting with nature indoors, integrating elements of sensory awareness, mindfulness, guided visualization, somatic practices, storytelling, and more
• Strategies for integrating nature-based techniques with your current modalities
This call is targeted to therapists and mental health professionals, but appropriate for anyone who wants to tap into the power of nature to create more inspiring and effective online sessions or programs, including teachers, coaches, and healing practitioners. You will receive a handout with more than 30 field-tested practices and guidance for how to use them—practices that also can be used in person once public health conditions make that possible.
Limited to 25 people—just four spaces left as of Sunday evening.
(Once it’s full, you’ll have the option of joining the wait list and/or registering to receive the recording and handouts.)
