    Supporting Resilient Communities

    Facilitating emotional understanding, dialogue and empowered action

  • About Us

    As we heal, the Earth heals

    One step at a time

    The Green Step is a network of educators offering workshops, podcasts, meditations and talks that are designed to help our communities become more resilient in the face of the current climate and biodiversity crisis. We aim to create a prosperous and sustainable for all. We are co-creating and hopefully striving for a just transition where no being is left behind. Our current focus is on land use practices, ancestral healing and building a community to support one another. You can join our uplifting online network and live discussions here: The Green Step FB Community


    The Green Step team are collaborating to create spaces rooted in storytelling, active listening and ancestral practices to help us find a balanced way of living within the Earths systems. As we heal ourselves and become more calm, clear, grounded and resilient we can take inspired and empowered action to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. When we heal, our communities and the earth heals alongside us.


    Check out our current projects and offerings below. It would be an honor to work with and support you in this time of great change.
