You were never meant to live entirely – or even mostly – indoors. The truth of who you are unfolds naturally and gently only through the embrace of being in a natural place.

“All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man,
the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.”
--Chief Seattle, Suquamish

Nature is more than your mother – nature is you and you are nature. Unfortunately, most of us have become disconnected from nature – and thus disconnected from our self. The route to finding your true self again is through walking the path of reconnecting with nature.

Each attractive, heart centered encounter with nature takes you one step closer to your inherent health, wellness, and well-being. Each step you take on The Earth Path stirs your ancient memories of a sacred, soul-filled, meaningful reality with which we have lost touch – but not lost.


Kind Words:

"I am a Medicine Man walking the Path now, instead of looking for it."
--MJ, Charlottesville, VA

multi-dimensional sensory perception of natureCome and step onto The Earth Path and embark on your Nature Centered Healing journey. As you do, your body, mind, heart, soul, and spirit become free and wild again. As you step through the gateway of a natural place you reawakening your direct sensory perception of nature and reclaim your self as the multi-sensory, multi-dimensional being you are longing to know - again.

"We have forgotten what we can count on. The natural world provides refuge…Each of us harbors a homeland, a landscape we naturally comprehend. By understanding the dependability of place, we can anchor ourselves as trees."
--Terry Tempest Williams

The land around The Earth Path School has been specifically keyed to support your journey and the camaraderie that is experienced among students is heartfelt and nourishing.

"One of our greatest fears is to eat the wildness of the world.
Our mothers intuitively understood something essential: the green is poisonous to civilization. If we eat the wild, it begins to work inside us, altering us, changing us.
Soon, if we eat too much, we will no longer fit the suit that has been made for us. Our hair will begin to grow long and ragged. Our gait and how we hold our body will change. A wild light begins to gleam in our eyes. Our words start to sound strange, nonlinear, emotional. Unpractical. Poetic.
Once we have tasted this wildness, we begin to hunger for a food long denied us, and the more we eat of it the more we will awaken. It is no wonder that we are taught to close off our senses to Nature. Through these channels, the green paws of Nature enter into us, climb over us, search within us, find all our hiding places, burst us open, and blind the intellectual eye with hanging tendrils of green.
The terror is an illusion, of course. For most of our million years on this planet human beings have daily eaten the wild. It's just that the linear mind knows what will happen if you eat it now." --Steven Buhner
