We bring you and nature together to inspire thriving together.


Bridge the Gap with Nature

We are starting to recognize the scale and impact of the loss of so many animals and plants and as we start to pay attention to this, we are beginning to respect nature enough to honour who they are and their place in the world. Out of that knowing is a deep desire to preserve nature and to thrive together. Before we can co-flourish, we have personal transformations to make, inner evolutions to undergo, things to learn to fully understand nature and relationships to rebuild.  A Better Place has created Journey Back to Nature. Come, get to know nature and let nature evolve you. This adventure starts with a change of mindset and heartset that engages us with nature to bring us back together. 



Seeing Nature Clearly
How you see affects what you do

What do you feel when you see a slug, a snake, a spider, a wolf, a tree? Most of us have lost our connection with nature and so we lost the truth of who animals and plants are. Instead, we were brought up with beliefs that stand in the way of seeing nature clearly.  Those beliefs have determined how we now feel about nature and how we treat animals and plants.

Come and discover:

  • The 5 most common ways of thinking that create a separation between nature and us, interfere with seeing animals and plants as they are and affect how they are treated.
  • Uncover what beliefs you personally hold about plants and animals.
  • Begin to master the process of seeing nature clearly.

When you see the beings of nature for who they really are, what is really going on within them, what they really look like and what they are actually doing, you come away with a whole new awareness of nature. In the process, you shift your perspective and how you interpret what you see.

Nature and You
Our relationship with nature.

When you are really looking at a plant or an animal and you become aware that you are both alive and breathing, do you ever wonder if you are connected in some way? Nature and You takes you inside nature communities to explore that interconnection.

Find out:

  • How nature and nature communities (ecosystems) came to be the way they are.
  • How we are interconnected.
  • Our place in nature.
  • How the relationship we have together evolves us and more … .

Out of this weekly workshop, we begin to understand the complexity of the community we live in and our place in it. Knowing this grounds us, gives us a feeling of belonging and a sense of purpose.
