***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

Putting ourselves back into the eco-system of the planet – so we can better remember/ understand that a harmonious relationship with Nature is critical to our physical wellbeing and mental health.
Need to highlight what we are in danger of losing whilst celebrating the healing power of a hhttps://placetob2015a.sched.org/editor/session?id=f8dfb097a6820c60a14abb7eb6d648c4&page=5ealthy, vibrant Nature, ensuring it is revered as solace & sanctuary – not endlessly exploited as a resource for raw material.


Comment replacer l’être humain au cœur de l’écosystème de la planète, pour nous rappeler et comprendre combien le maintien d’une relation harmonieuse avec Mère Nature est essentiel à notre bien-être et à notre santé mentale ? Dans cette thématique, il s’agira de mettre en évidence ce que nous risquons de perdre, tout en célébrant le pouvoir guérisseur d’une nature en bonne santé et vibrante, une nature que nous devrions révérer comme un sanctuaire et cesser de considérer comme une source infinie de matières premières.

Vintage magazines, books, National Geographic from the 60’s, that Kodacolor image, this is my preferred source. Gathering a collection of physical images before you can actually begin... Read More →
