Our caring staff use ancestral teachings and primitive technologies to build upon children’s reverence and to create lifelong stewards of the natural world.

BEan In Nature mentors facilitate kids to love, care and connect to nature not by using a ‘teach at the child’ didactic model, instead we use the skillful art of questioning, creative guiding and mentoring, experiential child-led focus and facilitate learning by doing, where we share our contagious enthusiasm, our imagination, and our own love of nature.

Visible Transitions - visibletransitions.com
Visible Transitions is my photographic methodology I’ve developed over the last 13 years which helps young people (and families) experience more ease, joy and personal power during life transitions (such as the recent firestorms.) I do this by using photography and curiosity.

It produces a radical transition which often shows up as transformation in physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms, and in the general approach to life. Some examples include the ignited nervous system, sparkle in the eyes, dull to radiant skin, a ready smile, stronger body constitution, a renewed swagger in the gait.

* clue into your patterns
* gaining a new perspective /thoughts about patterns
* becoming a neutral observer
* tangible and creative expression
* visible and gentle view of the truth
* raw transparency (no more persona)
* turn negating into tangible evidence
* points us towards our essence
* helps bring misalignments into alignment

A Photo-Walk-About captures and locks in your intentions, goals, commitment and insights.  The Visible Transitions journey is a guided experience and creative platform that supports safe self-expression while sustaining child-like wonder. Together we go beyond the talking and writing:  we create a visceral and somatic experience to sustain that to which you’re committed. How so? Each time we take a picture with intention, as with Visible Transitions process, we activate that part of the brain where we learn and form new habits and mindsets!

Janet is also a published author and will have autographed copies of her book, Me With Me. Janet Caliri likens self care to the instructions on an airplane - Put your oxygen mask on first before assisting another in an emergency. She points out, "How could you possibly be coherent and rational enough to assist another when you are not breathing enough oxygen yourself? Putting yourself first is actually a selfless act of love." It is precisely the message of her book.

This book provides unparalleled techniques and exercises along with nonfictional stories. These personal accounts are from everyday people who decided that doing the same thing over and over again only gave the same result.
