8 Guiding Principles of Foundations IN Nature

#1 - Exposure to the Elements of Nature, which are multi sensory and four dimensional, are the direct pathway or “blueprint” for optimal neurological development.

#2 - The Human Body and Mind are hard wired for meaningful, functional occupation in the elements of the natural world.

#3 - When we develop in the natural world, as we have for millennia, we are happier, healthier, more intelligent, compassionate and more deeply connected with all life.

#4- Being oriented to or connected with the natural world IS “Human Nature”.  This ultimately leads to connection with self, community and environment, which leads to success in all of life. 

 

#5 - Understanding the innate developmental needs of babies and children, leads adults to boundaries that are appropriate for optimal development. 

#6 - Given appropriate developmental boundaries, children will seek what they need. 

#7 - We are above all else: Wired to survive.

#8 - In order to capture the vital energy necessary for engagement, children must be "met where they are".  This means that they will learn best from an interest driven interaction dictated by their current development.  In our current world paradigm, children are exposed to a signifanct more amount of technology than they are to nature.  For this reason, parents, teachers, therapists and educators must learn to use technology in a brilliant and conscious way to lead children back to the natural world.
