What we do
Waterbear Planet is a creative studio specializing in the design and delivery of experiences promoting wellbeing, self-care and connection to nature. We make it easier to pursue a more rested, relaxed + happy life.
Our cutting edge resources help individuals, teams and organizations to reach their goals by boosting creativity, performance, and overall effectiveness, while reducing stress levels, enjoying deeper rest/relaxation, and being more mindful in their self-care.
Finally, by including educational elements around wellness, nature & environmental justice, we help make ESG priorities even more tangibly relevant, emotionally meaningful + engaging to employees. We also teach students and young people about nurturing their own connection with nature in a way that is uniquely personal to them.
We don't need to tell you that we're immersed in a global stress factory, and that most of us have already been operating on overdrive, exhaustion, and under emotional strain for quite some time. And yet, we still have big problems to solve!
Although stress can drive creativity and help us get stronger, it's when we're under too much, long-term stress that it impacts our ability to think clearly, to participate in generating constructive solutions that shape our world(s), and our personal/professional lives suffer (and so do our bodies).
If you're here, it's likely that making more space for your-heart-sings-for-joy-reality is probably way more appealing than staying in overwhelm-and-stress-drives-life. You recognize that getting your life, family and business operations in sync with mother nature is your ultimate endgame (and your personal super power when it comes to releasing stress) and it's better to start now. We can help.
Although little more than a twinkle in our eye back in 2014, we planted the first seeds for what Waterbear Planet would become. Since then, we've examined the nooks and crannies of stress, burnout & the power of the natural world to heal. We've discovered new ways to promote relaxation by reconnecting people with nature, even in cities.
Our individual and team clients span the globe from Amsterdam to London, New York to Los Angeles. We've worked with people in their homes, at their offices and while on the go.
Our lovely founder and CEO is Sharon Unis, pictured above. Currently the main creative brain of this operation, she can be found poking about in city and state parks, along river banks and with family and friends. She is always listening and observing, gleaning insights and inspirations for everything she contributes to Waterbear.
Sharon draws on her training in earth sciences, ecology & economics to inform her work here, while bringing decades of work in wellness facilitation, user experience design, and social entrepreneurship. She's also engaged a broad range of projects around children's play environments and building recovery into the workday in new ways. Finally, she currently facilitates our oasis online ℠ classes and will be your trusty guide.
Our consulting team extends our ability to support your emerging wellbeing culture with our experience in operations, finance, human resources, team building and more.
