International Workshop Series-Connecting with Nature, Srilanka
If you lose a relationship with nature, you lose a relationship with humanity – Krishnamurti.
Studies have shown that being in nature, living near nature, or even viewing nature in paintings and videos can have positive impacts on our brains, bodies, feelings, thought processes, and social interactions. There are many ways of connecting with nature and one of them is through plants.
So join us this Friday on 19th Nov 4-5 pm (IST) for our workshop based on “Connecting with Nature” with our speaker Savandhi Silva from Sri Lanka, where she explains how connecting with nature through plants is beneficial and important for us.
