Eco Art Wellness: A Self-Care Lifestyle that Promotes Resiliency & Burnout Prevention from the Inside Out
Presented by Lanie Smith, MPS, ATR
Creativity + nature combined offer a unique opportunity to experience yourself as part of the greater whole...to dig into your senses. Using the natural beauty of the earth with creative self-expression, you'll be invited to play with the healing power of the elements by meeting your own beauty, balance, and wonder mirrored through the landscape, your art, and colleagues or peers.
Our inner nature can be seen in the outer world when we slow down and observe the earth’s innate intelligence and vice versa. Staying in touch with the rhythm of nature and connecting with your own sensory capacities through the sound of the wind, touch of water, smell of dirt, etc. allows you to merge with and hear the wise voice of nature as your own.
Seeing yourself in this way allows you to connect deeply to the collective wisdom and simultaneously connect deeply with yourself, your loved ones, the greater community, and the natural world. It invites health and growth that will benefit not only you but those you serve.
