Nature Immersion

By: Julie Elledge

Nature Immersion Walks

As the first inspiration for storytelling, our earliest ancestors tamed their fears and made sense of the world through the natural landscape. Mentor Agility offers a two part nature coaching course series, where you will dive into both ancient and modern stories and learn techniques harnessing the power of nature to actualize clients’ potential.

Nature Immersion is the first class in the Mentor Agility nature coaching course series. Inspired by our home of Jackson Hole, WY, we will explore how to harness the transformational power of nature as a metaphorical tool for client insight, learning, and reflection. In this class, coaches will specifically explore environmental context in relation to well-being, the ethics of working in nature, and methods for taking your practice outdoors.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. —Albert Einstein
