I am so encouraged by the success of this simple yet powerful online Natural Mindfulness Guide Training Programme. Previous courses have proven that it is possible to share deep knowledge, understanding and generate the necessary motivation and inspiration, that enables and encourages others to become guides too. My courses have proven to be very popular and do tend to book up in advance, even before I release dates. So if this resonates with you do get in touch. I am currently only running 4 courses each year. 

This 21 Day programme is open to anyone and everyone who shares my passion for nature and wants to assist me in my mission to share the healing power of nature connection with others both locally and globally. There are growing communities of Natural Mindfulness guides and practitioners throughout the UK, Europe, America, Australia and many other countries worldwide. I’d love you to join us.

My aim is to make this programme accessible to everyone. Guiding others to a deeper more mindful relationship with the natural world and our own true nature, is a natural ability, not something we have to learn, or be qualified to undertake. If you have any concerns, or perceived barriers that may be preventing you from taking this step, do let me know and I’ll be happy to talk it through with you.

The course investment remains the same as in 2022 – £79.00 inclusive, for UK residents. 95 EUR for those based in Europe, 150 AUD for Australia and 110 USD for the US and other countries.

To ensure finance isn’t a barrier to you becoming a guide, I have very easy payment options and other pathways you can take. Please get in touch and ask for more details if finance is a difficulty for you right now, or if you have any other concerns,  contact me here.

What previous participants say about the programme.

“I absolutely loved this course. The flexible method of delivery really suited me and the format really worked. It was simple, not overwhelming and empowering. I loved being in the online groups with like minded people across the globe and sharing the experiences in different terrain and encouraging each other. Was very touching at times. Thank you so much Ian for an exceptional experience and your energy. Love your “natural” approach to life and business. You truly have an embodied natural mindfulness practice. Highly recommended!” – Deborah London UK

“I absolutely loved the opportunity to be able to participate. I was looking for something different and your program was a wonderful opportunity and something different than the forest bathing training offerings I have come across. I see your training as a genuine love for the forest and for folks to be able to experience and share that love with others. Thank You. – Ginifir Maine USA

“I really enjoyed the course on many levels. It was interesting to see a Facebook group and FB video being used so constructively and loads of people joining in. But it was the essence of the course that really was most rewarding. Well structured, engaging, a really good step by step approach to increase confidence and autonomy every week. It’s given me the confidence to actually offer Natural Mindfulness as a service in due course. And it shows that not every useful and empowering training has to cost thousands of pounds! Thanks for not up-selling but rather offering ongoing support instead.”  – Monika Scotland UK

“Thank you Ian. My deepest gratitude to you for such an incredible, life-changing course and for your patience in getting us all over the line. I’m excited now about re-emerging into the world and hopefully starting to nurse those little seedlings of inspiration I’ve been germinating over Feb and early March into strong healthy plants within the Nature Connection community!”  – Kirsten Staffordshire UK 

“This course will inspire and change you without effort, following your love for Nature, guiding you into your purpose.” Aikya India

“I thoroughly enjoyed the programme of experiences, and am quite missing the interaction! “ – Helen North Allerton UK

“fab course, fab experience, its been a real pleasure.” – Juliet  Newcastle UK

I absolutely loved this course!  It was extremely engaging, full of genuine compassion and a true love of nature that shone from everyone participating and involved. Its format was flexible, it allowed for self discovery and reflection without feeling pressured to deliver  at a given end point. The course was totally empowering. I particularly loved being online in groups of like minded ‘forest folk’  across the world and being able to share our experiences and encourage each other. 

You were able to help me evoke and grow my awareness of my own ‘true nature’ by your own ‘true nature’ practice and sharing Ian. 

“This beautiful course I highly recommend!” – Deb W.  UK

I hope you choose to to join me and help build a worldwide nature conscious community through Natural Mindfulness guiding and look forward to welcoming you.
