    For the past 15 years, in one way or another, Tim has connected people through nature, whether it was for fun or work. Tim noticed the power of this connection and that ignited a desire to gather scientific evidence that explained the positive effects of connecting to yourself, others and the natural environment. Brianna is a trained outdoor educator, taking students, sporting groups and individuals into the Australian bush and international locations for extended periods. Her work has allowed her to understand the strong link between behavior, growth and the power of experiential learning. Tim and Bri have done extensive reading of existing research, consulted with researchers, university professors, personal coaches, medical professionals and individuals in their quest for a holistic approach to wellness. The result of their work is a unique selection of education tools that appeal to the head and heart. By understanding the science that makes the human body function best "the head" helps us make decisions that are good for our body and make us feel better "the heart".
