An Eternal Relationship…

“We are Nature!  The Earth and all of her inhabitants are one organism.”

The Earth is responsible for all aspects of life- the basics for survival and to potentially maximize our ability to thrive in our evolutionary process.  Spending time alone or with family and friends in Nature surrounded by the rest of the Earth’s creations and inhabitants: grass, trees, plants, water, and wild life allows for a sense of connection and renewal. Nature facilitates our health and wellbeing as well as our spiritual-consciousness development. The Earth’s Schumann waves 7.83 hz is comparable to our restorative and healing, alpha brainwave state (i.e. relaxation, meditation).

The ancient systems including Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda were established to maximize internal and external harmony with our environment. Many cultures, spiritual, and religious traditions originated with a similar intent to harmonize with the natural environment (landscape, ecosystems, cycles, and frequencies) for survival, social development, and sustainable evolution. Science explored the internal, external, and furthest reaches of our environment. Art (also used in ritual and ceremony) was a means of expression and communicating information with each other and our environment, call and response. After thousands of years, the bottom line–Nature and the environment still hold the key to our survival.
