In many cultures, nature has its own power to heal, to restore, and to replenish one’s soul.Hundreds of studies over the span of decades have all proved that connecting to nature is one of the best thing you can do to improve your health. By just spending 15 minutes in nature, one’s stress-hormone level drops significantly.So come and immerse yourself in a culture and way of life shaped in harmony with nature that is deeply transformational—what we call The British Columbia Effect.
