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

The Transformation Wilderness Guiding (TWG) certification is geared to those seeking to become professionals who work with clients in nature-connected ways. It teaches and reinforces the skills necessary to guide clients safely in the remote wilderness for a wide variety of learning and therapeutic purposes.

The Wilderness Quest is an ancient ritual found in nearly every culture. The rhythms, beauty, and harsh realities of the wilderness act as mirrors—reflecting deep truths about who we are. A critical aspect to the Quest is an awakening—The Call to Adventure—often an external or internal event that spurs an individual to action.

As response to that call, the Wilderness Quest can be a catalyst for great change—the perfect to answer meeting the challenges of major life transitions, such as:

  • graduation
  • loss
  • changes in career or retirement
  • relationship changes
  • financial or health crises
  • relocation
  • depression or trauma
