This mentoring system is for anyone who wants to engage more deeply with nature on a variety of levels. It's a very affordable option for anyone who wants personalized mentoring directed at exactly what they’re most curious about without paying a lot of money.
It's ideal for people who want guidance in a format that goes at your own pace. It’s also ideal for people who have challenges motivating themselves to develop deeper skills without the accountability of a mentor.
One of the best things about this program is you can try it out and get a feel for how it helps you before deciding to commit long-term. It’s very affordable and still offers the option for long term mentoring as long as you continue sending in your work.
What kind of background do I need? Am I qualified?
The basic qualifications that you need are:
1. Desire to learn & connect with nature 2. Ability to go outside and have experiences (tracking, bird language, naturalist walks, etc.) 3. Ability to write down your reflections, stories, observations, etc.
If you've got those three components then you're a great candidate for this program and submitting your journals will help you grow on your path to natural learning.
How much time do I need to commit?
You can put as much or as little time as you want into these journals.
There’s no required frequency of submission so you could do one every week or if you just want to submit one every so often when you need a boost on your learning journey then you can do that too.
Does it Matter Where I live?
Not at all. You can participate from anywhere in the world.
That's one of the great features of this program because you'll be able to integrate your studies & experiences into your own bio-region.
1. Submit Electronically via the Nature Journal Submission Centre 2. Submit Via Mail
When you make your first purchase you'll receive instructions on how to access both these options. Responses in both cases will be delivered electronically within two weeks of the receiving date.
What if My Journal Sucks?
Don’t worry about being perfect with what you submit. If you try to draw a map and it turns out crappy or if you’re not sure your ideas make sense, it’s ok!
The whole point of this is to get better and push our edges in nature. This includes helping you find good strategies for recording your experiences. Your process will most definitely evolve as you go along.
