Reasons why nature is a great healer
Nature connects us to our inner self. It is not just for sight seeing, adventures or taking wonderful images. If you could feel its beauty deep within you, nature is a good healer. The closer you are to nature, the healthier you will be. Ask a shaman. No matter what, we are deeply connected to the wonders of Mother Earth.
The sun is a circle
The earth is a circle
The moon is a circle
The drum is a circle
We are a circle
— ancient Sammi song
