Connecting People with Nature to Inspire Global and Personal Regeneration.

My life’s work is connecting people deeply to nature. In over 25 years of mentoring people, I’ve seen that deep nature connection changes us. It rewires us and enables us to make much more of our human potential.

I collaborate with organizations and individuals around the world who are seeking to foster deeper community and nature connections through the power of cultural and coyote mentoring principles. My keynote talks and trainings are based on a lifetime of personal experience combined with the input and guidance of cultural specialists from around the world.
