People and Nature

Finding Inspiration in Every Corner of Nature

In recent years, more and more of us forget that we are part of Nature. This is reflected in our bodies and psyche. We, as a species, have been inextricably linked with nature for millennia. We lived according to its rhythm and our mental functions adapted to its pace. And suddenly there was a change! We left the neighbourhood of nature for the sake of cities - and there, it immediately turned out that some things cannot be replaced, cheated.

Research shows that the lack of contact with nature has many manifestations and all of them are destructive for us. It all comes from the simple truth about us and our roots. It is nature that supports us, allows us to access many emotions and understand other people or things and changes taking place. We feel and know that it is medicine for the body and spirit.

Passion Makes Perfect

Our goal is to show our customers that nature plays an essential role in our well-being.

We want to offer a safe nature space and make them draw inspiration for everyday practice.

 

The guide only opens the door to the benefits of spending time in forests, fields, hills and mountains.

The guide is a companion to the experience. Nature does the healing.

My passion for the great outdoors began early in my childhood. I was fortunate to live close to a forest, climb trees and take trips to the mountains. This early exposure to nature gave me a true purpose in life, and hence I have a profound connection to nature and feel part of it!
I feel the best amongst nature, and through my work, I would like to invite others to pay more attention to our natural world.
