What you'll do
In this experience we will make a tour between the vegetation and the forest in the San Rafael Nature Reserve located in the village of Santa Elena, very close to the main park. The tour includes several representative places of the reserve where we can experience different scenarios and activities: see the transformation of the compost and feel the soil, observe the trees, feel the microclimate of the forest, build apachetas on the stone path, walk barefoot the paths of the dynamic meditation field. After the tour we prepare the ground to receive a native tree that will join the reserve's trees. We choose the tree, we prepare the soil that will nourish the tree, we make the hole, we think about the idea that will accompany the tree in its development (a thank, a commemoration, a purpose, a projection), we sow the tree and we give it the water irrigation. The experience is offered for those who want to be close to nature and contribute to its conservation, who seeks to revitalize itself with what nature produces, who wants to feel part of the skin culture of the planet, who wants to have a being-tree to accompany your idea and your feeling.
Hi. I love nature and consider healing contact with her. That's why I wanted to give you the opportunity to live this experience. The Contact Center with Nature in the San Rafael Nature Reserve, is a space to which I give part of my dedication to share it with those who like me can have in it a place of physical, emotional, and spiritual renewal. There you will find a quiet, vital place, a beautiful landscape, paths between vegetation and native forest, and spaces for personal or shared meditation. I invite you to live in connection with nature!
