I agree - thank you! I am in the process of turning our 200 acres wooded farm into  an equine/nature based therapy camp. Am drawing alot of ideas from Coyote's Guide and Ecotherapy by Howard Clinebell. I worked primarily with traumatized and at-risk children. Nature is the ideal modality for helping these children regulate their emotions. I have one child who LOVES to do the fox walk to calm himself!
