HEALING NATURE ( ECO-THERAPY AND HOLISM )

Healing nature seeks to address the dis-ease caused by a disconnect between humans and nature. Because holism is supposedly all encompassing, it is important to explore the interconnectedness of humans with their amazing ecosystem and natural habitat. Ecotherapy usually involves sensory awareness practices that invite us to expand the mind-body-spirit connection. By inviting nature into the therapeutic alliance, we are holding the space for the person to connect with their natural environment and provide them with deeper understanding of themselves and their place in the world.
