The Nature Summit

The Nature Summit | Watch the Replays

Join an extraordinary group of 30+ speakers for important conversations about nature and our planet.

  • What important lessons does nature have to teach us?
  • How do we connect with the healing power of the natural world?
  • How do we love the Earth, draw inspiration from its beauty and protect it in times of crisis?

In response to these timely questions Mark Coleman of Awake in the Wild and Eric Forbis of Wisdom for Life produced this inspiring conference on nature and our relationship to it.
