Indigo Forest School Practitioner Training
An Indigo Forest School helps children and youth rewild
The Indigo Forest School Practitioner Certification Program shares our unique approach towards connecting and teaching about sentient nature and then applies these methods to the world of child and youth education. The program also offers training, curriculum and toolkits which will strengthen the special needs carried by both Indigo Children and Indigo Parents. This program can be completed either through one of our in-person camps or through online distance learning.
This program is customized so that practitioners can choose to be trained for the following activity areas:
- Elementary and High School
- Family and Home Schooling
- Community Outreach and Service Organizations
This program offers practitioners a chance to explore ecosystems and how nature communicates with us. It provides clear examples of how a relationship with nature takes place and why stewardship is so important. Through a series of thought provoking and tangible assignments practitioners will be able to develop stories to explain nature that will both educate and inspire children and youth.
The Indigo Forest School Practitioner Program includes aspects of our Yasei Shinrin-Yoku teachings which have been adjusted for children and youth but still incorporates wildcrafting, and includes a tangible understanding of the sentient forest. Yasei considers the expansion of our health, purpose and well-being as being directly related to the work that we do for the benefit of the forest – the practice considers that we and the forest are “one” and that through this presence the true natural balance of energy can be achieved that benefits both the individual and the natural world. If we invest in the health and growth of the forest then the forest will invest in us – the medium of exchange is “life-force”.
Through rewilding exercises participants will come to understand how nature works as they get their hands dirty - they will capture the satisfaction connected to creating a legacy that will help Planet Earth in both small and large ways.

Indigo Forest School Practitioner Program
Special Focus on Indigo Children and Adults
Indigo Children possess special, unusual, and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities. These children have incredible gifts and potential, but they may be shut down when not properly nurtured and accepted. An Indigo Child is an upgraded blueprint of humanity; a term that came up when addressing the aura colors of these very different kids. Previously, auric fields were expected to be shades of the rainbow, but the Indigo’s field is dominated by a royal blue color. What we need to understand is that there have been generations of Indigo Children who have matured into adults. It might very well be that the cultural mind-shift that we have been experiencing is the result of a population that might have a vast number of Indigos. What if Indigo Children who are now adults are actually the driving force behind the “green movement”? We are experiencing a major shift in consciousness and this program takes a practical look at the transition towards Indigo Energy and how it is influencing humanity, the Earth and the future.
Included in the Practitioner Program are Indigo Special Toolkits
The Indigo Healer
There is a paradigm shift in wellness and therapy which is moving away from the “wounded healer” and towards the “mystic”. This course section is ideal for healthcare practitioners who are experiencing first hand this shift in wellness.
The Indigo Child
Indigo Children can make a real difference in the world because of their special gifts. If you think your child is an Indigo, then it is well worth exploring this dimension of energy as it exists in nature. This is a toolkit that speaks to parents, teachers and children.
The Indigo Leader
There is a mega-shift in the world-view as communities transition towards a more mindful heart-centered community and economy. This toolkit explores Indigo Energy within schools, communities, organizations, business and leadership.
