Welcome to¬†Calm by Nature, a unique learning journey and community designed to help you enjoy¬†a life of vibrant, everyday calm, in collaboration¬†with the nature¬†right outside your door‚ÄĒall in just 3 weeks.

 

Why Choose Calm by Nature?


Some 
people say that nature is part calm and part turbulent tempest.
Yin Yang. Just like us.

But our¬†experience is that, when thriving, nature is primarily peaceful ‚Äď with rare moments of pressure release. Just like us.

When we pay attention, the Earth offers us a clear mirror for what our best lives can look like. She reminds us that, like her, when we thrive, we are calm by nature.

Not sleepy calm, nor boring calm, nor out-of-touch-tone-deaf calm.

Calm in the sense that we can relax enough to let the unbridled flow of life run through us.  The kind of calm that is at the core of clarity, courage, community, coherence and so much more that we desire.

Combining teachings from the Himalayan traditions, Indigenous wisdom, and creative expression, we offer a nature-centered approach to awakening your inherent peace.  

With a 98% success rate, we guarantee results in 3 weeks or less. 

Here’s How it Works


To get started, you'll receive:

‚ĚÄ ¬†1:1 Onboarding Session:¬†To welcome you into our coalition of natural calm, to understand your situation and to set you up for success. ¬†

‚ĚÄ ¬†25 Minutes of Daily Guided Practice:¬†Simple, effective and enjoyable¬†exercises to deepen your intentional, personal relationship¬†with the Earth. ¬†Inspired by the hummingbird, we'll awaken our calm, by taking a soulful sip of the¬†nature around us each¬†day, five days per week.

We have curated a rich collection of our favorite practices for you, which include meditation, movement, journaling, poetry, sketching storytelling, music, ritual and more.  The idea is that these will provide a  framework for you to draw inspiration from to create your own personal repertoire. 

‚ĚÄ ¬†Weekly Check-Ins:¬†Personal support¬†by email to ensure you are overcoming any obstacle and progressing towards your calm. ¬†¬†

‚ĚÄ ¬†Stay for 3 Weeks or as Long as You Like:¬† In the first 3 weeks, you will learn how to awaken your inherent calm every single day. ¬†If you would like¬†to learn more advanced practices and join an international community of Earth lovers doing the¬†same, then you are welcome to stay with us for as long as you like.

MODULE 3: Clearing the Turbulence
OBSTACLE: Murkiness of life causing confusion and fear.

OUTCOME: Building on the reconciliation and grounding that you have established, you can collaborate with nature to create a clear, tranquil inner environment that enhances relaxation and perspective, and brings about fearless courage.

Nature is our teacher.

I'm happy to be your guide.

I¬†was raised¬†in Venezuela by¬†the¬†gentle laps of the Caribbean, watching the turquoise water reflected on the bellies of the pelicans. ¬†Although, I¬†lived in an apartment in the busy city of Caracas, I¬†also felt at home in the small rainforest that was our¬†backyard ‚Äď one which we¬†shared with gentle sloths and mysterious iguanas.

When my daughter was born in San Francisco, I¬†developed¬†a heightened sensitivity to the noise and overwhelm around me ‚Äď and now around her too. ¬† I¬†refused to accept that profound inner peace was to become¬†merely a retreat indulgence. ¬†That's when I¬†embarked on a journey to awaken my¬†everyday nature-infused, inherent calm.¬†

Inspired by a tiny colibrí, and informed by years of study with the Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh, many opportunities to be in community with Indigenous wisdom keepers, and my experience as a documentary filmmaker, I eventually developed Calm by Nature, a reliable, soul-satisfying method for accessing our peaceful, grounded presence in collaboration with the Earth.  

Since then, I've had the pleasure of guiding¬†all sorts of Earth Lovers ‚Äst farmers, filmmakers, sustainability professors, outdoor educators, botanical artists, policy makers, healthcare workers, healers, chefs, mamas, women ‚ÄĒ in accessing their own nature-infused, inherent calm, every single day. ¬†I've shared my¬†learnings as a course at Stanford University, for the United Nations, the Dalai Lama Fellows and for a growing online community.¬†

My prayer is that as we awaken our natural calm, we will become greater instruments of resonant beauty and¬†healing ‚Äď for ourselves, our communities and our Earth.

I look forward to meeting you.

Through Nature Practice, it's as if I gained access to another layer of myself.  A part of myself that's quieter and more grounded.  Connected to an ancient wisdom.
