What participants are saying:
“Ariana and Kai are two incredible women who have passion and drive for what they do. From calming your soul with connection to the natural world, moving without judgement, or simply reflecting and pondering on experiences, this training is an incredible opportunity to personally experience how to be successful in Ecotherapy…It gave me a better understanding and tools to help support not only my own nature practices, but also those I work with.
The knowledge, education, friendships, and love that you will feel during this experience, is incredible AND it is a judgement free space…This training is an A+! I can not wait for more opportunities to work with these outstanding woman.”
