Welcome! Your commitment to Nature is essential.

The School for Nature was created to provide tools and guidance which support a path of transformation to heal and revitalize all of Earth’s beings. This path is grounded in the understanding that all beings are equal, all life is sacred, and we are one with all life. Though our online Kerulos Learning Institute  (KLI), we offer a variety of courses, internships, mentoring, and career and educational consultations tailored to meet the needs of individuals and groups.

Our courses follow a four-step path of discovery designed to bring our species into resonance and unity with Nature:

  • Awaken – Recognize Nature and humans as one
  • Understand – Learn principles that give rise to Nature’s coherence and beauty
  • Ground – Cultivate practices that revitalize deep connection to all of life
  • Act – Live this understanding

Mariposa

We have recently added Mariposa to our School offerings, a transformative path that brings human perception, understanding, and ethics into resonance with Nature, for Nature’s sake. Mariposa courses and mentoring are grounded in meditation-mindfulness training in Nature consciousness, the interconnected world from which all beings draw, as William James describes, the “continuum of cosmic consciousness, against which our individuality builds but accidental fences, and into which our several minds plunge as into a mother-sea or reservoir.”

Explore our first Mariposa course:  Nature Mindfulness™–Meditation Practice for Animal Activists, Rescue, and Care, a self-paced, six-class course that introduces you to the foundations of mindfulness and meditation. You are provided with tools and skills you need for engaging positively and healthfully with difficult situations and emotions. Our course is designed to enhance your ability to self-care, navigate difficult situations healthfully, and develop wisdom into Animal experiences.
