Our Team and 3 Pillars

Our Team:

Seth Frappier (Owner-Founder)- I hail from a small town in Vermont called Hardwick. In 2005 I moved to MA to attend college. After high school I thrived at college achieving two bachelors degrees (Human Biology and Adventure Education). My passions in life include adventuring in and studying nature, being a teacher, holistic medicine, finding my own sense of place, Cannabis advocate and user, and community building. The greatest cure that nature has brought me is the cure for loneliness and giving nature back just my time with others created a more deep and meaningful interaction with our natural world. There are many examples, studies, testimonials above and beyond my own that reflect this. Nature and holistic wellness has not only done wonders for me mentally and physically throughout my youth and adult life but for so many people around the world so for the past ten years I have been honing my Human, Outdoor, and Educational "hard skills" so that I could eventually build an amazing team and start my own company taking people into extraordinary natural settings to build community (including Cannabis community), foster sense of place, and help people live more holistic lifestyles.

 

Our 3 Pillars (Core Philosophies):

Community

A group of all leaders who share equal responsibility for and commitment to maintaining its spirit. Capable of vulnerable and authentic communication, individuals develop their capacity to attend simultaneously to their own and the groups consciousness.

Sense Of Place

Comprised of two separate but symbiotic concepts.  First, relationship to place, or the way people relate to places, or types of bonds we have with places.  Second, community attachment, or the depth and types of attachments to one particular place.

Holistic Wellness

Emphasizes the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts. It is the recognition that what affects one part or system affects the whole body. A holistic approach to health is multi-faceted and mindful of the consequences of our habits and actions.  Wellness is the condition of being in optimum health. It is a holistic blend of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, the result is consciously choosing to live a quality life. The path of natural health and wellness is a life-long journey that requires personal responsibility and commitment.
