Rolling thunder... When you are ready, come to me. I will take you into nature. In nature you will learn everything that you need to know. The 21st century is an age like no other. Our children face some of the greatest challenges and stresses presented in earth's history. Both personally and collectively it will become known as the time in history when we return to working in cooperative relationship with the natural forces of nature.

Through connecting the child's heart to the earth's heart we sow a seed of belonging to this earth, allowing a relationship of reverence, respect, cooperation, beauty and balance with all of life to unfold.

Guiding our children to a place of 'right' relationship with all of life, and laying the foundation years of life as nature intended will assist them to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and capacities to navigate life's challenges.
