Nature Connection Rites of Passages
Because a Youth Crisis is Our Crisis

“One in six children aged 6-17 has a mental health disorder annually, but only one in five receive appropriate care.” Centers for Disease Control, January 2024


Amid the stressors of the times—from social media to climate change, school shootings, academic pressures, and racial and social unrest and division—our young people are experiencing rates of anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation as never before seen in modern times.

Our children are literally being born into a world on fire, looking for hope on screens and devices, connection through wifi, when Nature Connection is the greatest

The crisis:

Lack of hope

Identity crisis

Negativity bias and fear conditioning

Born into a world on fire

Falsely advertised connections (social media, technology, money, fame)

A culture of conditioning


What we believe is needed


A return to wholeness through recognizing our interdependence to the natural world (Reverence)


Growing connection through acts of “being with” nature with open ears and an open heart. (Curiosity)


Reclaiming our universal oneness with everything by letting go of our small self “ego” identity and joining with the larger cosmic reality. (Surrender/Sacrifice)


Learning to trust ourselves again by trusting nature. (Faith)


Returning to a spirit of joy and curiosity about the great mystery and how we are NEEDED each and every one of us for our gifts in this life. (Purpose)


One way up the mountain 🏔️


Rights of passage: A quest for vision


A sense of desire to be held by Mother Earth so to return back to the source of ourself.


A test and challenge to build resiliency while held in a safe and loving container.


Remembering our spirit again


Growing our connection to earth so we can fuel our own internal fire and give back.


Connecting to nature and source has to be experiencial and felt to remember it. It cannot be taught in to the mind because the mind does not know how to translate it to a feeling.


We must learn to feel again! If we are numb to the pain of the earth then we cut ourselves off from source.


And so we go to source to feel it all and therefore remember what it means to live!


Kim’s Riffs:


“Knowing that each of us matters”


“If nothing we do matters then why are we here?”


“Nature helps us realize we matter!”
