Here's a sneak preview! This is going out into the Facebook Universe tomorrow, but we want you, our Earth Connect community (aka Earth Connectlings), to find out first!  We've opened our online school as the first step in our education program. This experiential six-week course will teach you nature-based practices to alleviate stress and anxiety. This is based on the pilot program launching in the Fall. But, most of our Connectlings don't live in CA. So, this is one way to learn what we'll be teaching.  For a very limited time, and for a very limited number of experiencers, we're offering the e-course at a 20% discount with the coupon code "20OFF".  To find out more, go to the new Earth Connect Online!  www.earthconnectonline.com  (I'll post clickable link in the comments - Frances)
Have a good night Everyone!
HAPPY EARTH DAY EVERYONE!  We have some BIG news to share with you all. We’re not sure if it’s big for you, but it is definitely HUGE for us and even bigger for Earth Connect. As of today, Earth Day 2019, we are officially “Earth Connect LLC,” a social enterprise organization. WHOOT!!! This means that we are driven by our mission to promote healing by offering programs for people to connect with nature.  We are so excited to share this with you especially because we have a few programs in the pipeline that will soon be going live. Please do subscribe for our emails and newsletters to keep updated. You can do that on our website. All our efforts have come to fruition in large part to those who’ve been so supportive and giving. And, we want to express our immense gratitude to all those people who’ve contributed through this process and helped make it happen.  First and foremost, thank you to our Patrons who support us monthly: Angela Cato Laramee, Barbara Sunday, Felicidad Lao, Jenny Baker, Paul Costantini, Bobby Reilly  And, we’re so grateful for the donations made by: Manda Durham Wallbridge, Tracey Verhoeven, Betty Biaett, Margaret Skillicorn Basa, Valerie Viada-Keith, Monica LA Canducci, Carol Holder, Erlinda Dizon, Melissa Hatfield, B. Bray, Julia Kaplan, Lanie Sioson Ebitner, Laurie Tajima, Teri Ang, Zoe Chan, Cecil Loleng  Thanks to all of you for being a part of our community, engaging with us on our social media, and showing your love in all sorts of ways. We are truly grateful to be connected with you in this effort. Earth Connect is yours as much as it is ours, and we hope to meet you, if not in person, then online.  With gratitude,
Frances & Erin, Founders

"I am in love with this world . . . I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings." -John Burroughs.
.
This week we're contemplating what it means to love nature. How it looks to move in relationship with the natural world and how our love is always reciprocated. All the ways in which we are cared for and supported by Earth. Some themes we'll invite you to explore this week are nature as teacher, as home, as nurturer, as inspiration and as source (among others). Happy week ahead everyone! ❤  (from our Instagram @earthconnectorg)
