ACES are Adverse Childhood Experiences. The more ACES you have, the more likely you will have serious mental and physical challenges as an adult. After 4 ACES, addictions are almost guaranteed.
Nature is both a PROTECTIVE AND COMPENSATORY EXPERIENCE against ACES
But how can you support young ones to make nature their PACE if you haven't made nature yours?
Spend three days finding your PACE in nature. We'll teach you how to:
Awaken to nature's calling right outside your door.
Engage your neurology in core experiences that are necessary for mental, physical, and cognitive health.
Make nature connection a core part of your work and life.
