Nature is not a Refuge, but Life.

After all, aren’t we Nature?

We cannot forget that modern lenses are thick and invisible, distorting our vision, even more so when we believe that our modern/western perspective is exceptional and more evolved than all the others, it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to make room for different perceptions to manifest themselves with equal dignity: imagination, dreams, whispers of the stones, singing of the trees, living stories everywhere. In other words, the animistic, sacred, somatic, non-verbal dialogue.

So, before expecting your refuge to give you peace, listen to it, feel it. How can you give back?
