“Pacific Windforce Provides Teaching Pathways “Into the Natural World of Plants, Animals and Ocean” To Listen and Learn With Moments in Nature that Range from Simply Beautiful to Awe-Inspiring.”
We easily understand that the care of and connection to the natural world and to each other is our most important tool in our busy and ever changing lives.
We recognize art and expression in all forms as creative energy.
We recognize a future duty to ourselves, our children, and grandchildren.
We listen to and recognize our spirit guides.
We listen to and recognize the wisdom of ancient and Indigenous peoples.
We listen to, support, and reinforce the connection we have to all land and all wildlife.
We recognize teachings from long ago dynasty’s that hold truth through time.
We recognize that people are looking for an opportunity to gain more control over their future and to forge a better Path Forward for thier Children.
We Are the Winds of Change
We explore moments within our natural human abilities through Learning to Listen and Becoming one with Nature.
We even like to connect with each other through our various Nature Based programs to reinforce learning and teaching.
We employ the four natural elements of Earth, Wind, Water, Fire and we let Nature embody our Human Spirit consciousness.
To accomplish this, we use the connection to Animals, the Forest, the Ocean, The Mountains, The Rivers, and The Past as a teaching pathway to our future.
We believe that our wild connections to nature and the environment have to be re-established so that our understanding can deepen. Connecting to Nature’s supports allows us to better feel and appreciate our human natural interactions with the wild outdoors.
We know, that Wild Natural Environments are under threat from pollution, deforestation, habitat loss, and climate change. We believe that unprecedented actions need to be taken to protect these environments. This is an area where we can all make a difference.
Just imagine the feeling you get of relaxing at a cottage on the lake and the call of the Loon!
On top of it all, the science is in. Measurable health and well-being benefits from an untouched natural environment are immediate and lasting. We see our programs and tools as important pillars of support to ongoing Life/Work balance, and our Natural Health. Because everything is connected, the outcomes tend to be more balanced and calming on a personal level.
Now.. That’s the Spirit!
Research on direct health benefits of Nature in Ocean and Forest Settings.
Just a short interlude in forest, stream, or on the Ocean, is associated with improved mood and feelings of health and robustness.
Levels of the stress hormone, Cortisol, markedly decreased in people in natural settings compared with control groups in artificial settings.
Natural settings, along with activity, significantly mitigate the root cause of a multitude of ailments.
Here is a quick list of culprits that are mitigated.
- High blood pressure
- Heart Disease
- Skin Disorders
Forest and Ocean programs catalyze increased Parasympathetic nervous system activity, which prompts rest, conserves energy, and slows down heart rate, while increasing Intestinal and glandular activity.
( In pressure and stress settings, overexposure to these same chemicals increase anxiety, depression, heart disease, weight gain, and memory and concentration impairment.)
There are higher benefits:
- Indigenous consciousness
- Physco evolutionary theory
- Naturalistic intelligence
- Spiritual Connections
- Ethical Care
- The land Ethic
- Eco psychology
- Children’s development
