Animas Valley  Founded by Bill Plotkin in 1980, the Institute “offers multi-day immersions into the wilds of nature and psyche for the purpose of retrieving the unique, mysterious identity hidden in the soul-waters of each life. Animas originated and continues to evolve a contemporary Western, nature-based approach to the journey of soul initiation — to our knowledge, the first of its kind.”

RedwoodsEvergreen Leaders Project (ELP) – “We exist to make democracy a healthier, more constructive, and civil process for all.  For the past 25 years, we helped change social norms around smoking while we supported elected leaders in enacting public health ordinances. We noticed that public hearings designed to improve the public health are innately unhealthy! The typical leader’s lifestyle can easily lead to addictions and preventable diseases.” ELP includes training in healthy meeting processes, nonviolent communication, mindfulness meditation, and HeartMath Institute biofeedback training. “As leaders, we can learn much by reflecting on the resilience of evergreen trees!”
