EBI is an incubator for people with a passion for nature—
a place to grow that passion into a meaningful career



  • Being able to co-facilitate with the natural world is such powerful gift. The program connects people to nature, with a heavy emphasis on brain change and neuroscience, and that was a big draw for me.

  • This program combined the tools to connect deeply to nature and ourselves, with really practical skills that we can use to serve other people. The instructors have a ton of experience and are completely aligned with nature and what Earth-Based Institute is all about. You get a lot of personal time with each one.

  • I've gained a new community that is inspiring. Nature-Connection is more than just being outside. It's about being around other people and realizing that nature is all around us all the time.
