One Tree Learning Institute

Our program is the application of resiliency practices that manage stress. The focus is on evidence-based practices and systems of resilience. We all will get changed by life events, but what that change looks like will depend on us. We can become survivors and grow from those experiences, rather than become victims of them. We have the power to help others grow by learning from our perspective. It is important for us to share the insights’ we have learned from working with these skills. In doing so we create a “clan” that sustains us; a place where we both give and receive.
