Description

“… playing in nature, children not only fill their lungs with air and strengthen their muscles, they also learn to look outward toward the great web of beings that exist beyond the human world, and in the process cure … disorders such as boredom, anxiety and depression. They learn to harmonize with natural rhythms – of seasons, light and weather – and find within themselves an answering sense of peace. They learn to be quick like a fox, steady like a mountain goat, innovative like a crow, persistent like an ant, hardy like an oak, sensitive like a sea anemone. Nothing is too small to emulate, too insignificant to learn from. Nothing in fact is ‘small.’ Nature is Great.”
