Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a four-week program that explores the principles of ecopsychology. Gradually gain a deeper sense of self-value, one’s relationship with nature, and a desire to engage with nature as a trusted and valued aspect of one’s own life. The ecopsychological focus will be to open yourself to direct experiences within nature and rely on a reciprocation of experiences where you will allow nature to gently guide your awareness through your senses.
You will be challenged to learn from nature’s wisdom in the absence of words and languages and simply rely on your non-language-based senses. You will be amazed by how and what nature reveals to you through such an approach. You will discover how nature truly exemplifies ‘unconditional love,’ and how we can take lessons for our own lives.
Each week, participants will be introduced to new concepts which they will then apply them to practical activities and reflect both collectively and individually.
