Join our mailing list to stay in touch and receive your FREE Activating Connection Pathways Toolkit. The toolkit is a solid intro to the Connection Pathways curriculum and worldview. It's packed with activities to get you started on the journey.
We aim to make our newsletter a helpful and enjoyable source of information about deep nature connection, ancestral skills and cultural repair. It is also a way to stay updated about our events and programs.
Our Vision & Mission
Our vision is to help create a cultural shift that realigns human beings with the natural rhythms of the wondrous planet we live on and the mysterious universe we are a part of. We believe that people who connect deeply with nature and community are much healthier and happier while having a significantly smaller impact on the planet's ecosystems.
We work with parents who are committed to integrating nature connection into their family's everyday life and raising their children in the most natural and connective way possible. We also work with individuals who want to go deep on the journey of connection to nature, spirit, self and community through the art of holistic tracking.
We believe that we become who we are through all of our relationships. Much depth of relationship to the more than human world was lost when we stopped being hunter-gatherers. We no longer tend these relationships as a direct physical survival need, yet they are essential to our spiritual survival. This is why we teach ancient skills and wisdom in modern times.
Our Signature Programs
Holistic Naturalist & Tracker Training
Reclaim your birthright of deep reciprocal relationships to all living things and full sensory capacity. This time tested training pathway is supported by attentive 1 on 1 mentoring and community. It will help you know your place intimately the way our hunter-gatherer ancestors did.
Core Mentoring Community
Long-term mentoring in deep nature connection and culture repair. Over time, this pathway will help you develop a potent and dynamic connection to Nature, Spirit, Self and Community. It can provide you with the ability to see a clear path in these confusing times. This group of joyfully committed people is at the heart of Connection Pathways.
And Learn In Person!
We're based in Mi'kma'ki (Nova Scotia, Canada) near the towns of Annapolis Royal, Bear River and Digby. The majority of our classes take place in this general area.
Sharing the skills and wisdom with our local community is really important to us. We also welcome anyone joining us from out of town. We look forward to meeting you!
After two decades of teaching ancestral skills and facilitating deep nature connection, I've had time to distill what I feel is essential for people to effectively find their way back to an important ancient bond with the Earth and their own sense of vision and purpose. I've mentored many people on a transformative journey to living joyful and meaningful lives deeply connected to the natural world, to themselves and to their communities.

The call to this path is often deeply felt yet it can be hard to explain or rationalize. If you are feeling a pull and still have some questions, feel free to contact us.
