Do seek ‘grounding’ for yourself and your children?

Do you wish for a deeper understanding, connection, and relationship to self, and the world around you?

Would you like  to know and trust your own inner wisdom on a deeper level?

Art of Spirit’s Earth School is a mindful, integrative, self discovery of the natural world, serving as a response to Nature Deficit Disorder and presenting children and adults with the opportunity to discover  and embrace their own inner nature.  Give your child or yourself, the gift of connection to self through nature.

What?


Earth School Programs

Through a mindful approach and a sense of self-discovery, Art of Spirit’s Earth School serves as a response to Nature Deficit Disorder and aligns children and adults with the rhythms of nature, thus forming a deep knowledge of, and a personal relationship with the natural world.

This deep, integrative experience allows us to tune in, recognize, and embrace, our own inner nature. Given the gift of ‘time’, we  invite and promote a deep,  ‘wonder- filled’ exploration and a personal comfort in the natural world, which we call home.

Our programs are a blend of the physical and metaphysical aspects of the natural world and thus include spiritual teachings (not religion) earth studies, art, and energy work. Observations and experiences are expressed creatively  through art and hands on  experiences.

Earth School began and continues as a nature-based summer camp. We are now expanding to offer children’s home school and weekend  programs, and adult programs. We are also expanding our accessibility by offering programs  at two different locations, Bucks County Audubon and Nockamixon State Park.

Programs are  facilitated by Earth School founder and Director, Patricia Walsh-Collins and assisted by other experienced and dedicated educators.

Who?

0715151115 - Version 2

Earth School began as  summer camp for children. Over the past three years, we have found that Earth School not only appeals to kids but to adults as well, therefore we have broadened our offerings to include adults programs. Please check them out under the ‘What’ section.

Who are we?  Earth School Founder and Director, Patricia Walsh-Collins is a certified professional educator with more than a 23 year professional career.  Seventeen of those years were spent at Buckingham Friends School in Lahaska, Pa., where she taught both Art and World Religion. She has developed numerous curriculums and presented them at state, national and international education conferences.

She has created and taught numerous camps, including the Michener Art Museum, Montessori Development Center, Bucks County Community College, and Children’s Art Studio. Patricia has also been trained in Mindfulness by Mindful Schools of Emeryville Ca.

As an ‘educational entrepreneur’, Patricia took  a leap of faith,  by leaving her full time teaching position in order to teach in a more expanded way. She is creator and owner of Art of Spirit Inc., which serves as an ‘umbrella’ organization for education.  Through Art of Spirit, Patricia shares and educates through trade of traditional arts from native cultures, Earth School, and public speaking and  writing.

Patricia has travelled extensively, both alone and with students on international trips. Having been blessed with many teachings through travel, relationships, and personal development, Patricia is compelled to share them with others through Earth School and her monthly spirituality column called, ‘Shared Teachings’ in the Bucks County Herald newspaper.

Assistant Earth School instructors are experienced, dedicated educators and experts in their fields.
