Program Description

Tier 1: The Nature of Nature

The Nature of Nature is an exploration into the many different perspectives of nature. People have different perspectives and interpretations of nature. Too often, we believe our current perspective is the one and only perspective, and it should be shared by one and all. The goal of Tier 1 is to demonstrate that one’s perspective of nature can change, gaining a broader and deeper appreciation of nature and by doing so, unveiling a new potential. Nature is constantly on the lookout for opportunities to spark new growth.

Tier 1

Lesson 1.1

Nature is Multi-faceted

How one sees nature depends on perspective. Narrow perspective reveals only a fragment of nature's character. Broad perspective reveals nature is comprised of body, mind, and spirit. This knowledge will lead us to make fundamental comparisons between nature and our own existence.

Lesson 1.3

Nature's Mind

Nature is consciously aware of the surrounding environment, interacting in every cell throughout the universe. Nature is continuously discovering opportunities for new growth, new connections, and new skills. Nature wants to belong by connecting, consuming, and contributing to the continuum of creation.

Lesson 1.2

Nature is an Interconnected Web of Cooperation

From a narrow perspective, it appears that plants and animals are separate and distinct from one another, but nothing in nature exists alone. Everything consumes and contributes, forming a network of symbiotic relationships. All elements in nature work together to promote the balance, health, and well-being of the natural community.

Lesson 1.4

Nature's Spirit

Once the spark of growth is ignited, nature's mind gives way to spirit., where all energy is dedicated to new growth. Nature is never riddled with doubt. Nature is resilient, persistent, and adaptive. By gaining a broader perspective of nature, you will have experienced a level of that spark igniting growth.
