Deep nature connection in service to the future generations...

This is much more than a course, it’s an ongoing  mentoring community dedicated to deep nature connection and cultural repair. 


If you want long-term mentoring in the core routines and teachings of Arnaud's lineage in a small group setting, this is the place for you.


We use a combination of live online workshops days, monthly missions, lots of guided field time, group calls, online courses and forums to create deeply meaningful experiences held within a strong mentoring culture. This holistic approach, over time, will bring you a powerful and long-lasting connection to Nature, Spirit, Self and People. This community is designed to support your personal practice and local initiatives. My prayer is that it leads us all to live a truly natural life style.

With this Community You Will:

  • Deepen your knowledge of place and grow meaningful relationships to the more than human beings around you

  • Hone your intuition and build confidence in your own personal spiritual authority

  • Gain tools to build a nature connected community where you live

  • Empower yourself to live a deeply connected life

  • Build long lasting connections with people on the same path

Mikayla Kaminski, WOLF Kids Instructor and Core Mentoring student at Connection Pathways

I felt a real desire for longterm mentorship community and I am so happy I followed the call to join! The missions allow me to find and follow my authentic curiosities. I feel a sense of belonging to the community because we share common values, interests and the same delight in the wonders of life on Earth.

This is likely a good fit for you if...

  • You want to go beyond what’s possible in the finite structure of courses.

  • You’ve had an immersive experience in this lineage or took some courses and are thinking: What now? How do I fully integrate this into my life?

  • You run nature programs yourself and are looking for mentoring to deepen your own journey and mentoring skills.

  • You believe that connection to Nature, Spirit, Self and People are inseparable.

  • You're ready to commit to the core routines of nature connection as a way of life.

  • You want to explore the deeper spiritual aspects of nature connection.

  • You want to meet and share stories regularly with people who share the same Vision as you.

  • You want to receive teaching and mentoring from someone who is directly connected to Jon Young’s lineage.

  • You want to cultivate connective culture around you everywhere you go.

  • You want to live a life of Peace, Love, Joy and Purpose beyond self.

This is not likely a good fit for you if....

  • You don’t have enough time to engage in at least some of the practices, calls and discussions.

  • You don’t have the ability or desire to access the online platform. We have in person classes and series if you prefer to learn in person.

  • You haven’t had any prior experience with this lineage and its teachings. The Holistic Naturalist and Tracker Training is the ideal place to start. You can also check out our online courses and in person events.

  • You believe that only people from certain cultural backgrounds can connect to the Earth and celebrate life through ceremony.
