NATURE COACHING ACADEMY

Learn how to facilitate coaching sessions in connection with nature.

the nature coACHING ACADEMY has launched new in-person courses for 2020-2021 and an international affiliation program to become country ambassador.

WHAT IS NATURE COACHING?

Nature coaching is a new way to facilitate coaching sessions in connection with Nature.

Numerous scientific researches show how, nowadays, the connection with Nature and mindfulness experiences help people to find centering, alignment between needs, values, objectives and action, strengthening their decisional skills, self-esteem and sense of self-efficacy.

The result is that people gradually feel more and more themselves, discovering and living their own value and uniqueness.

In Nature Coaching this knowledge, borrowed from ecopsychology and neuroscience research, is translated into proposals that provide experiences and practices for observing and listening to nature – the one around us, and the one within us.

The Nature Coach, by facilitating the client’s reconnection with the “external” landscape, helps him or her to also reconnect with his or her own “internal landscape”, in a mutual mirroring that man has cultivated since the dawn of time to know himself, and to orient himself or herself among the things of the world.

I’ve been SPEAKING AT ICF CONVERGE19

The International Coach Federation biannual congress has taken place in Prague between Oct. 23rd and 26th 2020.

It’s the most important event in the coaching industry worldwide, and on October 24th I guided a workshop about Nature Coaching, within the “Science” seminars. Click on my photo to read all the details about the program!

 

The Four Pillars of Nature Coaching

Maieutic-Somatic Coaching, ANIMAL LEARNING PRINCIPLEs, 4E LEARNING theory

 The Nature Coaching training course allows you to acquire the 11 core competences of coaching in accordance with the model and definition of the International Coach Federation. The approach to the development of the coachee’s potential in Nature Coaching is based on maieutic dialogue, listeningsomatic intelligence awakening and the integration of Animal Learning Principles and Embodied Embedded Extended Enacted Learning Theory. You will learn how to guide Nature Coaching sessions both indoors (in the studio) and outdoors (gardens, parks and forests). 

APPLIED Ecopsychology AND NEUROSCIENCE

Numerous scientific researches show how mindfulness in connection with Nature help people to find centering, alignment between needs, values, objectives and action, strengthening their decisional skills, self-esteem and self-agency. The result is that people gradually feel more and more themselves, discovering and living their own value and uniqueness. The Nature Coach, by facilitating the client’s reconnection with the “external landscape”, helps him or her to also reconnect with the “internal landscape”, in a mutual mirroring that grows in what we call “Natural presence“.

Biomimicry, System Thinking, Circular thinking, Wild Thinking

Nature is a primary source of knowledge and learning, with over 3.8 billion years of R&D, facing dramatic changes with grace and genius, developing innovation and ideas for sustainable and regenerative living, with benefits for all living beings, continuously creating conditions conducive to live. A Nature Coach needs to know the basics of biology, biomimicry, system thinking, wild and circular thinking, to expand the views of the coachee and enable the ability to make responsible choices within the complex systems that each of us is, and that we all live in.

Ecology, ECOSOPHIA and Eco-philosophy

There can be no human well-being without the well-being of the planet. That’s why I talk about “Life-Centered Learning”. At the Nature Coaching Academy you will learn how to sustain life forces either in your personal life and within the wider context of your relational ecosystem. You’ll develop a felt sense of interconnection with the land and with other non-human living beings. You will step out of anthropocentrism, to embrace an eco-centric approach. You’ll also become aware of the impact of your consumer style on the well-being of the biosphere, making UN Sustainability Goals your every day mindset.
