The art and science of reading nature, of observing and interpreting the movements of animals or clouds, tells a bigger story of our place in nature. We are biological. Like the bear who slows down in winter, humans also have biological clocks that tick in sync with nature’s cues.

Reading Nature envisions a world where humans live in sync with nature inside and out. Through biological awareness, our programs aim to reset our clocks to tick in tune with the circadian rhythms of nature time.      

“The circadian clock is the body’s internal timing system, which interacts with the timing of light and food to produce our daily rhythms. The best way to achieve optimal health is to live in accordance with the clock rather than fight it.” — Dr. Satchindananda Panda, Salk Institute Professor
