At Sense Nature Miami we develop and facilitate nature-based, innovative programs that combine sensory exploration, creative expression, and community engagement to enhance the well-being of both people and the Earth.

Our mission is to foster an embodied understanding of our inseparability from nature, emphasizing that each of us—humans and more—holds a unique and vital place within an interdependent global ecosystem. We believe that this deep recognition will naturally promote the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and environmental stewardship.

Our Approach

Sense Nature Miami is founded on Karina’s diverse background as a Neuroscientist, Biologist, Professor, Artist, and Nature Integrator and Advocate. While our framework is structured, our approach deeply values personal exploration. As such, we are meticulously careful to ensure our programs do not direct participants toward predetermined experiences. We artfully curate each program to facilitate authentic self-expression and guide people in experiencing deep connection with nature, with themselves, and with others.
