Scientists have revealed the healing power of Nature and that such Nature based exepriences, are a strong path to innerself reconnection.

Indeed, recent studies in the field of positive psychology have demonstrated the salutogenesis action of the direct contact with nature, and its importance in human development.

Such nature connection has been proved to be beneficial for both human cognitive functioning and emotional wellbeing at all developmental stages. (Zaradic & Pergams, 2007) and multiple levels, increasing the intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and physical development. (Kellert, 2005)
