I CAME TO BOSS BECAUSE...

I first came to BOSS because I was curious. I needed a break and some concentrated "dirt time." No one else in the country offers anything like the 28-day Field course.

I TEACH AT BOSS BECAUSE...

I teach at BOSS because I want to continue to learn from and work with some of the best people in the business. The importance of facilitating a stronger connection with nature for people cannot be understated. I believe BOSS's work is very important.
