“I really enjoy your evidence-based information and the course was awesome – I would love to take another course with you, on just about anything!”
– Jessica, Recreation Therapist & Registered Nurse, Canada
A substantial lessening of anxiety and irritability
was reported by many students who completed my online course this spring. That's despite the challenges of Covid-19 starting during the course. And despite many of them enjoying nature before the course!
They also reported an increase in:
Noticing nearby nature
Focus and attentiveness
Joy, awe, curiosity & fascination
Happiness & contentment
Self-awareness in the present moment
Energy for their work
Meaning & purpose in their work
Outdoor enjoyment, even in unpleasant weather
Connectedness to nature and the earth
“One of the most intriguing and most useful, practical courses I’ve taken in quite a while. So fun, informative and extremely useful practice of self care that can often be neglected. I was skeptical of online, but content was fun, delivered with a variety of tools such as video, poems, books. Such a perfect way to learn at my own pace. Loved it! Thank you!”

Paying closer attention to nature in my daily life helps me feel SO much better, and be more creative and productive too.
You can benefit from the same simple practices that are producing positive results for me and lots of other people!
"... I realize how important it is to give myself a nature prescription. Even though the primary focus of my work is helping people connect with nature, I was always too busy caring for the well-being of others to take a break on my lunch hour. Now I find myself eating outside, going for a quick walk, or stopping to pick flowers.
I realize that I have more to give by giving myself permission to take a break and look around. I don't have to go far to feel reconnected to nature and part of something greater than myself."
– Emma Rooney, Creativity Facilitator & Founder, Blooming Caravan, Toronto, Ontario
"I was in a sad place when I first started and getting out in Nature and seeing life in a different perspective has really lightened my being.
Thank you, Shelagh. I truly believe this course came along at the right time."
– Debbie Boef, Instructor of Recreation Therapist Assistant Program, Okanagan College, Kelowna, BC
