‘growing Roots’: Online Practitioner Training
Join our ‘Growing Roots’ Online Practitioner Training and be part of our growing community of practitioners!
Our ‘Growing Roots’ training is designed to give you the necessary knowledge, foundations and skills to safely move your practice into nature. This course has been carefully crafted and designed to provide you with strong ‘roots’ to grow your nature-based practice.
The course is 12 lessons long and has more than 25 hours of mixed-media learning material to suit diverse learning styles. We encourage you to follow along week-by-week but you can follow along at your own pace in a way that suits your learning needs and lifestyle. You will have access to this course for 12 months.
As part of the Growing Roots training, you will have free student membership for 12 months. As part of your membership, we invite you to monthly check-ins with the tutors. The check-ins are ‘connection-rich’ rather than ‘content-rich’ and are optional to attend. They will be run by our team of EcoSensory Tutors (Co-Founders and Clinical Leads in the field of Clinical Psychology and Occupational Therapy)
On completion of the training, practitioners may call their nature-based work ‘EcoSensory Informed Practice’.

I don't know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
