HEAL WITH NATURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ECO-THERAPY?
As an extension of nature, your system is designed to be in harmony with the oscillating rhythms of flow, rest, rising, falling, expansion, contraction, and so on. Spending time in nature supports a natural state of nervous system regulation.
Within 5 min of being in nature your body and brain start to change...
Research today confirms the profoundly healing and restorative effects of nature on our mind and body. Studies reveal that:
Indoors, we tend to use only two senses, our eyes and our ears. Outside is where all of our multi-sensory capacities awaken as we smell the flowers, taste the fresh air, notice at the changing colors of the trees, hear the birds singing and feel the breeze on our skin. Eco-mindfulness will support you in developing your curiosity, expand your senses and explore your interconnectedness with your living environment.
The teachings and healing ways of nature are revealed to those who listen deeply and engage with care. Approaching our relatives with reverence and mindfulness is foundational to eco-therapy.
