"I spent a day with Quiet Heart 'Finding Truth in Nature.' What these wonderful people shared was the calmness that can be felt in the presence of nature, the beautiful fit of all beings and the power of nature to heal. We spoke of mentoring and coming of age and coming to an age of wisdom. It was a profound day for me."

"Hawkeye is so knowledgeable, gentle, and grounded. He has taught my daughter how to connect with nature in ways that emulate conservation and preservation of our world."
