I am a lot more connected to nature and the earth, in some way protected from what I don’t like about most middle schoolers’ behavior, like bad attitudes, judgment, and self depreciation and insecurity.  I also feel I have a much better relationship with my mom.

GAIA PASSAGES PROGRAMS

Gaia Passages draws from a variety of evidence-based best practices for youth and adult learning. We synthesize them into succinct offerings with particular emphasis on growing a deeply personal relationship with nature as teacher, guide, and lifelong friend.

Health and Safety Precautions

In response to shifting COVID-19 protocols, all fall circles will have a maximum ratio of 12 participants with 2 guides. We will not have shared meals or snacks, and participants and staff will comply with updated CDC recommendations for health and safety. (Read our complete COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan.) Each program will have 2 extra sessions scheduled in both fall and spring semesters as some cancellations will likely be necessary due to rain, wildfire smoke, COVID-19, or other unforeseen circumstances. Our programs meet outdoors at local parks. If it becomes unsafe to meet outdoors, groups will either move to an indoor space with appropriate health and safety requirements, or programming will move temporarily online and Guides will provide meaningful and connective content through Zoom.
