Facilitating meaningful SOLO experiences in nature
Why does spending time alone in nature has a healing effect on the human psyche?
Explanation and Context
As human beings, we have a very basic need for belonging. The feeling of belonging is essential for a healthy development and personal growth. In the history of human evolution, we find evidence for a world view that connects us to nature strongly. But the so called modern science described by Isaac Newton set the foundation for the mechanic worldview and the human being as a machine. This had a massive impact on how humanity developed on this planet in the last centuries. The latest research in quantum physics comes up with unbelievable facts – unbelievable because it connects us strongly to everything. Spending time alone in nature helps us to remember our connectedness which is essential for a healthy development as a human being.
Content of the workshop
In our workshop, we will explore different forms of reconnecting to nature and discuss the impact of solo experiences on healthy development. We will also have a closer lock on how connecting to nature can support a healthy connection within the human community. For some of our clients the ability to connect and interact with others is disturbed and dysfunctional. Experiencing the quality of connection and belonging in and with nature helps to build healthy relationships with others.
