“We had gone as deep into the centre of the wilderness as we could, and as deep into our hearts and minds.” – Robert Greenway

Through this participatory session, Wilderness-based Coach, Josie Fenton, will share her work and passion for partnering with the natural world. From contemplative rock-climbing in the heart of the Rocky Mountains to a conversation on a city park bench, you will discover tangible examples of the scope and potency of nature-based coaching. 

You will be invited to listen deeply to both inner and outer nature, as you connect to self, purpose and your own relationship with the natural world. There will be an opportunity to identify how you might further partner with nature in your own coaching practice. 

Please join us in exploring what it means to have a three-way dialogue between coach, coachee, and the natural world.

Together, we shall engage intuitively in guided activities based on metaphor, symbol finding, sensory awakening, contemplation, somatic engagement and co-coaching.

The learning objectives of the session are:

  • Learn simple yet powerful practices to further incorporate the natural world into the coaching dialogue
  • Experience the potency of partnering with the natural world
  • Sense the scope and depth of the field of nature-based coaching
