Your programs have changed my son’s life in very powerful ways. He learned to embrace his uniqueness! I saw him grow into a more confident young man that is more in touch with himself on a spiritual level and with nature. He learned to be quiet within himself and for him that has been profound!

The other day, my kids were arguing with one another and my daughter said, “I’m going to go sit in my sit spot to calm down.” I cannot imagine a better gift for our children than the realization that they have the tools to solve their problems by going within. Thank you for your amazing teachings!

My boys get so much out of Wildheart Nature School, from learning survival skills, to polishing their powers of observation, to increasing their appreciation of all living things, but one of the very best things is their desire to show us where they’ve been – Shevlin Park, Tumalo State Park, Dillon Falls… Every weekend following nature class, the boys ask, no insist, that we go see what they have seen. I couldn’t be happier that they want to spend their time outdoors, in the forest or by the river, looking for animals or signs of animals, telling us what plants are edible, and more. Wildheart Nature School is truly phenomenal!

My son’s experience with Wilheart Nature school has been wonderful. He is always excited to attend and doesn’t want class to be over when it’s time to leave. Amara and Dreamer are able to teach children very meaningful concepts about nature while making it very fun for them in the process. We will, without a doubt, continue to enroll him in their classes and look forward to when our daughter is old enough to attend as well.

Our two children love attending the Wildheart Nature Classes. They are always so excited to share with us the new things they’ve learned, created, and experienced with Amara and Dreamer. It has enriched our experiences as a family outside of class as well by sparking areas of new interest that we explore as a family after our children have been introduced to the idea in class. Amara and Dreamer have a peaceful yet joyful way of interacting with the kids and have a knack for creating a nurturing space where the kid’s feel encouraged to create and share. It’s has truly been a positive experience for all of us.

I love that my two boys are spending so much time in nature, exploring their environment and learning more about it in a rich, meaningful way. Brian was so excited to tell me that Pilot Butte is a volcano after they spent the morning climbing it with Amara. Both Brian and Charlie enjoy these adventures while interacting with other kids outdoors. Amara brings such a positive influence to the group and my boys really respond to her guidance and teaching.

Sacred Arts gave my children a spiritual focus on themselves as individuals. It gave them tools to use to help them grow and stay balanced in their everyday lives. Spending time together each month built a positive group bonding and consciousness that will be remembered.

This intimate rattle making class was empowering for me because Amara & Dreamer acknowledged & encouraged my (and everyone’s) birthright to engage in creative musical expression as part of daily life. Inspired by these gentle teachers, I have learned to listen more deeply to the plant communities through which I pass. And, I continue to create a litany of songs that I sing to honor the plants I encounter along my path.
