Workshop: Ancient Roots, Modern Shoots: Seeing Your Natural Environment as an Extension of Your Self
Sunday, March 30 - 10:30am to 12 noon
Ancient wisdom holds that body and psyche are intricately linked to the living environment and that contact with nature is essential for bodily and mental well-being. Modern research offers insights into why this is the case, and what practical steps we can take to establish a reciprocal flow of nourishment and energy from humans to our environment.
Goal: To introduce you to the concept that a human organism stretches far beyond the physical body.
• To learn how our ancestors in different cultures viewed humans as inseparable from their environment,
• To understand some of the recent scientific research confirming that our forbearers were right, and
• Practical ways to apply this understanding in everyday life.
