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.

The Four Pillars of Nature Coaching

Maieutic-Somatic Coaching

 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 coachee’s potential development in Nature Coaching is based on maieutics, listening, connection with Nature and the awakening of the somatic intelligence of the coachee. You will learn how to conduct Nature Coaching sessions both indoors (in the studio) and outdoors (gardens, parks and forests). 

Ecopsychology, Biophilia, Mindfulness, Organic Work Practice

 You will learn about the scientific foundations of the connection practices with Nature, experimenting them in first person, in order to feel your connection with the natural world and then learn to facilitate it both in individual and group settings. You will deepen the last 20 years of research on these issues, and you will be part of a scientific research yourself, performed in synergy with the University of Florence. 

Forest Bathing (Shinrin-Yoku)

By attending 4 of the 5 modules of the complete Nature Coaching course, you will learn how to lead Forest Bathing experiences. You will deepen your knowledge about the effect of coniferous essential oils on your personal well-being. Connecting with trees is one of the most accessible practices even in urban contexts, thus facilitating the practice of Nature Coaching in everyday life for yourself and for others.

Ecology 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”. You’ll learn about how ecosystems work and the ecological principles that govern living processes, become aware of the impact of your consumer style on the well-being of the biosphere, and make
your daily UN Sustainability Goals your own.
