Sometimes a tree tells you more than can be read in books. C. G. Jung
In a world dominated by technology and indoor living, we can easily forget that nature gifts us individually and collectively with greater health and wellbeing. For example, do you know that spending time in nature:
Reduces depression, anxiety, and stress?
This is true for individuals spending time in nature alone, with teammates, or people they have recently met. Nature serves all of us.
The environmental movement has introduced us to the importance of healing nature. But, rarely is the reverse explored–nature’s ability to heal and renew human beings, or what we refer to as nature healing.
As time in nature continues to disappear with the rise of technology and the expansion of cities and suburbs, fewer people experience nature healing or dismiss this power as unsupported beliefs or superstitions.
Today we are fortunate. Research results, both evidence-based and subjective research, affirm nature’s power to heal and to help us as individuals, societies, and a global community of life.
