IN NATURE                               WITH NATURE                               FOR NATURE

BEsimplicity

 BEsimplicity has been motivating and encouraging harmonious relations with nature, in nature and for nature since 2013. Initial nature connection endeavours took place among beaches communities in Japan: nurturing connection to the place and awareness of ecopsychological principles has been paramount since the early days. Projects in Japan focused on revitalising community involvement with natural space and increasing  awareness of  reciprocal human-nature interrelations . 
In New Zealand, BEsimplicity has worked autonomously and with external organisations.
They have been instrumental in providing a range of experiential education projects, primarily assisting external organisations achieve their environmental awareness goals and/or supplementing existing curricula. Devising and delivering learner-focused, solutions-driven experiential education for positive change is key in all undertakings.
BEsimplicity is currently committed to offering ecotuning (nature connection), practice of mindfulness training and educational programmes related to ecopsychology.
