Between the Trees

Wisdom. Wonder. Wellness. Wildness.

Between the trees nature workshops

The Between the Trees is a blend of inspiring personal and professional workshops, practical skills training, and interactive experiential learning activities, set in the forest, on the beach, at a local park, or even on the water.

These experiential workshops are designed to be fun, bold, and community immersive, while being inclusive to the diversity of our urban community. To be honest, we want Between the Trees to quite simply be about doing cool things with other awesome people in amazing locations.

Boom! We inject your weekends with immersive learning, community building, and authentic connections. We aim to destroy the status quo of how people typically learn, take you out of your comfort zone and exceed your expectations of a typical weekend in the outdoors.

Coming this September thru to November 2019 we will be offering weekend Between the Trees Retreats in Whistler, Sunshine Coast and Galiano Island, which you will not want to miss! Stay tuned, more information to follow.

Saturday Locations: West Spanish Banks Concession Stand, Sunset Beach/Aquatic Centre, Second Beach, Stanley Park, Seymour Watershed, Richmond Dyke Road and Buntzen Lake.


We are seeking to make significant impacts and opportunities for amazing facilitators to connect their “big ideas and knowledge” directly with people like yourself. We want to create an experience that is intrinsic, informative and holistic for our shared Metro Vancouver community.

We want to offer something out of the box, practical and transformative that’s why we offer a range in topics, from the history of colonization in America, martial arts, photography, forest medicines to creating a salsa dancing on the beach.


Often, we forget the importance to connect: connect with people, connect with our community, connect with nature, and connect with ourselves. Between the Trees workshops are a platform aligned with the belief of the importance of experiential education in our society and learning outside.

Come and have an unforgettable experience with us. Check up our web page for more information and register now.

The Big W’s of Between the Trees



Wisdom comes in many forms, shapes our knowledge and impacts our decision making. It reflects empathy simplicity, common sense and helps connects the dots between personal interests and competencies and life in general.



Wonder is a state of curiosity, a childlike feeling of delight. We become open to surprises and suspend judgement. Wonder feels like a glowing beam of sunshine that illuminates what we hadn’t seen before. Life provides endless wonders especially if we are willing to look in the space between the trees.



We need more wellness in our lives. Period. Drawing from diverse perspectives from within our community we experience and develop spiritual, mental, physical and emotional health in our workshops.



Wildness is the willingness to explore, and go further down a new path. Wildness is found in nature, relationships, stories, activities and most importantly the boldness within yourself to step out of your comfort zone.
