You, me and everybody has an innate need to get back to nature. In times gone by human lives were at one with nature. We planted and harvested our food by the seasons. In summer, we moved our body’s and spent hours outdoors. In winter, we rested, contemplated, dreamed and definitely got more sleep. Every aspect of our lives was dependent on nature – food, medicine, healing, ritual, survival.
Whether you’re aware of it or not we all have a deep yearning for nature. Being in nature is to ‘come home’. To be grounded, present, alive, grateful. To be simultaneously enlivened & energised yet calm and peaceful.
