Nature Connection studies your personal relationship with the natural world and how this impacts your life.
Much of the research focuses on how nature connection improves mental health and well-being.
However, there is also a body of research that shows how connecting to nature can promote creativity, innovation and transformational growth within the workplace.
With over seven years’ practical experience in nature connection both for individuals and organisations, at EarthSelf, we specialise on nature connection as a tool for sustainable business performance.
Connecting your employees to nature helps you create a transformational organisation that has the capacity to impact and influence the way business works and help accelerate our global transition to a world where there is harmony between humanity and nature.
The Nature Process®, a simple way of deepening your connection to nature by being in the body and experiencing nature through the 54 senses, is used by thousands of people around the world since its launch in 2014.
We run basic and in-depth online programs culminating in The Nature Process Certified Facilitator Training Program. Currently, we have one master facilitator, one certified facilitator, six facilitators in the process of certification and 11 people undergoing the training program since launching this in Autumn 2016.
Through the Tree of Transformation®, which uses trees as a map and metaphor for growth, we offer nature connected retreats for individuals and teams, individual and team executive coaching and corporate training programs in the UK and US.
We have also helped develop, in partnership with Future Strategies, Inc, the world’s first humanising performance analytics systems which includes nature connection and sustainability so that organisations are able to understand the impact of nature connection and sustainability upon the performance of their employees.
