Through the perceptive and sensory exploration of the natural elements you will come into close contact with nature. You will enter on tiptoe to be part of it through Landart techniques, practices of Geo Mindfullness, Geo Ecotuning, Shinrin-Yoku and Earhting. You will be transported by an inner peace and unparalleled stillness through contact with nature, led by the geologist guide at your disposal. The activity will continue with a barefoot walk in a leaf bath and you will test the energy inhugging a tree. You will experience the exciting forest and waterfall bath, away from the noise of the city. You will hear the voices of the natural elements and you will practice listening to what nature and art can say. An experience that, for all intents and purposes, will be a journey in search of inner peace and balance with the world around you.
