The healing experience of re-connecting to nature.
The state of being connected with nature quiets the mind and significantly improves our physical and mental health. All humans are hardwired with an innate affinity for nature, because nature is the source our very existence. Whether it be the still water of a lake or the wildfire running through a forest, the essence of nature is a state of flow, and connecting with nature unites us with this flow state. Immersing into nature improves our well-being by reducing stress and anxiety, inducing happiness and acceptance, and raising energy levels. Attuning to these states greatly assists the body and mind in the healing process. We believe in the power of nature to heal people. We also people that connecting to nature is essential for the well-being of the planet. The condition of the natural world depends on humans having meaningful encounters with nature so that we can create a larger body of environmental stewards.

Throughout our land are many waterfalls of varying size. Our largest waterfall is over 100ft, and crashes into crystalline pools of water below. Drinking from the waterfall, and swimming in it's pools is a rare experience harkening back to a time when we all lived immersed in the natural world.
