GROWTH and ADVENTURE WITH AN INDIGENOUS perspective

For centuries thought leaders have observed that nature experiences
improve the mind, body and soul. In recent decades, those intuitions have been confirmed by scientific studies that have been done all around the world. But modern lifestyles have removed us from nature. Studies also show that social support helps us to adopt positive behaviors.”
