We offer a journey back into nature where stress, IT and their impacts can fall away and your mind,
emotions and body can come back into balance and back down to Earth for whole, vital health.
Nature is the place where you meet wildlife, plants and fungi in person!
Experience your place in nature and deeply reconnect with the beings of nature to
have a relationship you were born to need and hardwired to have.
Along your way, you change and evolve, access your ultimate potential, find your purpose and
re-experience a feeling of belonging with animals, plants and fungi that rewilds your heart and touches your soul.
Each experience increasingly deepens your connection with nature.
Entry into the natural world.
In every walk with nature,
one receives far more than he seeks.
Become an expert woods walker.
An increasing number of people are heeding the call of nature. They are inspired by the beauty they see and curious about the animals, plants and fungi that live in the forest community they are a part of.
However, there are roots that stick out from under the ground, slippery rocks, crevices, branches, insects, inclines, your balance, pain and stiffness, low energy, etc. to deal with that can take away from the joy of being in nature.
To help walking in nature be a wonderful experience, we offer a program that helps you become a competent woods walker.
Woods Walks are a once a week, 10-week program designed to help you learn to walk to
- keep safe by knowing how to minimize accidents and injury, slips and falls,
- cope with your pain,
- prevent pain from surfacing,
- conserve your energy,
- increase your endurance
- minimize your impact on the natural world you are entering.
With this knowledge, you just may want to get out and walk in the woods more.
We live in an amazing and complex nature community and it is essential to get to know, value and respect the animals and plants that live there with us and then want to connect with them. To do this, the first thing we need to know is how to walk in this world.
If we are reluctant to go out in the woods, we will never know nature and we will therefore never care about nature and we need to protect and support nature thriving. Together, they keep Earth livable.
The benefits of woods walking that you receive are numerous: improvements to your whole fitness and health: calmer, more focused, better circulation, improved brain and heart function, stronger muscles, greater flexibility, stamina and more.
As part of this once a week program, we teach you to be confident, practiced woods walkers. As you learn, the trails you practice on get more challenging according to group needs.
We will be using slightly increasingly difficult trails in the Halton and Hamilton-Wentworth Regions and along parts of the Bruce Trail to challenge you to improve your skills.
You are offered individual attention as you learn and as you feel you need it.
This is for adults and seniors.

Nature is not a place to escape to,
It is a place to come back home to.
This two to three-hour nature retreat is for you if you spend too much time in cities and connected to IT. It is also for you if you are busy, facing life challenges, feel frazzled, irritable, anxious and down, overwhelmed and stressed; your health is compromised and your ability to fight disease is reduced.
So, come and be at home with nature as we guide you through 2 to 3-hour nature retreats to just be, receive from nature, deeply relax, heal and recover; rediscover who you are, your dormant abilities, what you need and what you can handle to make empowering choices that allow you to take back control of your life and improve your relationship with yourself, others and nature.
A few of the things you discover how to do in many of the retreats:
- De-stress to relax the fastest way known to mankind.
- Respond, not react.
- Rewild your heart.
- Make decisions that support a better life for you.
In nature, and with our guidance, you discover how to relax right down to your bones, just be with the fullness of nature, become more at peace and be at one with Earth to deeply rejuvenate, heal and recover.
Immersed in the accepting presence of the beings of nature, you rediscover your own humanness and begin to feel better about who you are.
In the tranquility, aliveness and dynamic order of nature, you can become more restfully alert, access your creativity and intuition. The insights you may receive in nature can help you come to sound, ingenious solutions to challenging problems that together with logic, pave the way for your best life.
It is easiest in nature for your mind to work better, to balance and transform your emotions and to grow your empathy and compassion. Rewilding your heart improves your relationships with yourself, others and all of life.
So, come with us to respond to nature’s calling, to fulfill your deep yearning to be in nature, let go of or find solutions to your worldly troubles, feel rejuvenated and back in touch with yourself again before you venture back out into the hustle and bustle of civilization and the emptiness of IT again.

Our experienced naturalists and professional field experts will conduct nature tours in nearby parks, conservation areas, the Bruce Trail and Cootes Paradise.
This is an opportunity to identify local wildlife, plants and fungi, get to know them and what they do to keep the Carolinian ecosystem we live in vital, healthy and resilient.
Our nature tours bring you new awareness and help you connect more with the natural world in a whole new way.
Our future on this planet depends on the presence of intact ecosystems. Through their collective actions wildlife, plants and fungi create the air you breathe, water you drink and the soil your food grows on. Who they are and what they do is essential for your survival. The more you know about them, the more you know how to support them.
(Mastering techniques from the Deep Nature Connections weekend workshop to deepen your connection with nature.)
Heart and soul connecting with the beings of nature you have come to understand.
This nature adventure is the practice of heightening your senses, going beyond them and having those quiet peak experiences that rewild your heart and touch your soul.
Come and immerse yourself in nature away from the throng. Within the world of plants and animals, re-experience falling in love with nature, feel the fullness, richness and timelessness of the bond between the essence of you and the essence of an animal, plant or fungi and give back to nature. Giving back completes and the cycle of life and sustains your link with nature. This is a relationship you were born to need and hardwired to have.
Through these experiences, you feel whole again, are at peace and know quiet exhilaration. Through these deep moments, you feel that you have come home, that you belong. With time you accept your place and begin to relate to the animals and plants you connect with.
Out of these experiences you learn who you are, increase your humanity, discover your boundaries with nature, rediscover your purpose and bring meaning to your life.
