We at Wild Heart Revival work attentively with clients to create customized natural history programs for
- preschool, primary, and secondary school teachers and their students
- other educators
Our experiential programs are engaging and interactive. We promote deeper understandings of nature and invite empowerment. Programs are designed cognizant of state education standards and attentive to the myriad of different learning strategies exhibited in students. Mindfulness techniques are utilized to help participants settle their mind, emotions, and body for deep learning and relationship building. Our unique approach to embodied education facilitates conditions that awaken curiosity, clarity, connection, cohesion, and compassionate co-action.
