In forest immersion

To delve deeply into nature

A different experience from the usual, allowing us to rediscover and expand our senses, gradually reconnecting with nature, freeing ourselves from the stress of daily life, relaxing the body and its internal organs, clearing the mind of thoughts and problems, calming emotions until we find a state of greater well-being, pleasure, and fluidity of existence.
