Nature Immersion Studies

Those who contemplate the beauty of earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.” ~ Rachel Carson

Being immersed in nature provides numerous health benefits, a slower pace, a rest from demanding mental-physical activities, and often enhances awareness with moments of insightful clarity. Nature provides space to create emotional balance and for inner exploration and self-discovery; which, contribute to the vision and motivation for achieving our goals. As a restorative environment, nature rebalances the mind-body and heightens our ability to access unexpected solutions for life’s challenges.

The Nature Studies Conservatory utilizes applied research and nature immersions as a multi-sensory experiential method of education informed by noetic knowing. It is a means to embody new awareness beyond regurgitating cognitive constructs and to anchor related new perception with a response that is align with positively affecting the environment. The new awareness is applied to multi-layered issues that not only affect the planet’s ecosystems and resources; but, also our health, wellbeing, and quality of life. 

This holistic, applied research addresses personal everyday situations and build restorative relationships with the internal and external environment: mind-body-heart/soul, family, partner/friends, home/workplace, local-global community, and Nature/the Earth +. The connection between social-economic structure and relationship development has far reaching implications in co-creating a sustainable culture that is harmonized with the environment.
