Nature-Connected Coaching is about collaboration with nature.

Nature-Connected Coaches℠ operate within every human sphere—from therapy to business, from education to adventure, from science to art. They look to nature—within themselves, their clients, and the environment—to help:

  • make life changes
  • navigate transitions
  • improve health—both mental and physical
  • build connections
  • develop career and leadership skills

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.—John Lubbock, British statesman

Earth-based Institute (EBI) offers two levels of certified coaching. Nature-Connected Coach (NCC) is the core program. Transformational Wilderness Guiding  is a second level of certification.

The low-residency NCC course takes 12-24 months to complete. The program includes online coursework (four Foundation Modules and eight Toolbox Modules), as well as five face-to-face intensives.
