EFL foundation was founded to access the means to support those who are ready to venture into the wilderness, to learn self reliance, to become leaders of themselves and to become deeply connected to all of life. These are three key factors that will lead our humanity in a direction of reverence and care for the earth, each other and ourselves. First Nations peoples teach their children to walk on the earth as if they are walking on the face of one of their most revered elders. Indeed, it is Mother Earth. The depth of transformation can be transferred back into everyone’s life, especially with a little bit of village support from those nature-connected mentors, elders and village builders emerging in every community around the globe.
