Tosh is a loyal compassionate companion to all who come to Play in the Wild! He began his career at the TEMBA School in its northern California location working with children ages 5-14 for over three years. He worked for TEMBA Summer Camps when he was just a pup. In the summer of 2012, he assisted Cornelia Holden, Catherine Cadden, and Jesse Wiens at the Hotchkiss School Summer Portals Program, Leadership and Social Change. He attends Wild!s when his schedule allows, bringing enthusiasm for play, silent council, empathic connection, humor, safety, and L.O.V.E. His passport has afforded him the opportunity to Quest in Canada on rare occasions. He particularly enjoys sharing in meditation, Empathy Circles, soccer, hiking, and swimming. He has been known to offer himself to the center of a circle when there is a challenging dialogue or when someone is expressing pain to support empathic connection, humility, trust, understanding, celebration, mourning, respect, and love.
