Eco Retreat Trainings, Visioning Journeys, Sustainable Life & Environmental Design

sustainable culture: An Experiential Model

​The Nature Studies Conservatory applies theory, research, and practice to invest in developing innovative strategies to help facilitate the recovery of our planet and local-global communities. The Culture of Sustainability (COS) Outreach was established to promote social, economic, and environmental stewardship mobilizing our local-global community resources via collaborative partnerships for planetary renewal. We assist in restoring the environment and provide community education, services, and resources for personal and collective development, eco-conscious living, and sustainable evolution in reciprocal relationship with each other and the Earth.


​Our research-based, ecoimmersion experiences with post-retreat online resources are tailored to effectively support individuals, organizations, and businesses interested in unifying to co-create sustainable local/global communities. Several experiential retreat options are available to help you develop your eco-based vision/mission; clarify strengths and needs; and provide practical planning, strategy, and tools with ongoing assistance for reducing our collective carbon footprint and general over-consumption. Increase your altruistic presence in the community and contribution to the restoration of the planet. 

These unique immersion experiences with focused training and/or depthwork are provided in diverse, beautiful green-sustainable settings (US/international locations available).

There is an inherent relationship between the human bioenergetic field (relating to efficient metabolic health), brain wave states, and the Earth’s geomagnetic fields. Schumann waves (7.83 Hz), similar to the human alpha brainwave state (i.e., meditation), are essential to our health and wellbeing.


Studies have shown that regular engagement in nature lowers rates of diabetes, heart disease, and psychological disorders. Natural areas (greenspace) also help to reduce mortality and to regulate the spread of vector borne disease. Our human body is a microcosm of the planetary macrocosm with comparative systems, elements, polarity, and electromagnetic fields.

An Experience is worth More than a thousand words...
