From the doorstep, you will hear the foliage whisper and the fragrant breath that caresses the pines will come down from the peaks brushing your face, it’s aroma will extinguish the fire that was burning inside of you.

A JOURNEY TO THE INSIDE
Mother Earth, the one who lives in us, the one we live on.
On this Earth Day, we invite you to reconnect with her in order to reconnect with youself.
She helps us and heals us. She feeds us, teaches us and listens to us.
Return to balance, to your inner presence. Remember the torrents, the tulips in spring, the smell of Quebec conifers, the undergrowth and the wetland. Imagine the beauty of the roots, the grandeur of the trees that make our hearts see the sky. Remember the song of the leaves in the wind, the feeling of softness of the breeze that touches our cheeks and makes our hair dance. The powerful and refreshing energy of the great waterfalls, the simple joy of dipping your feet in the river and letting your toes move with the current. Do you feel the energy of the present moment and the coolness of the wind? Reconnect with your senses. Reconnect with your olfactory memory, let yourself be guided by the smells. Do you feel your pulse? When was the last time you stopped to listen to your heart beat, to the rhythm of life? Nature is a feast of senses …
Remember that Mother Earth alive and well, constantly reminds us of the child within us. Connect with nature to reconnect with your nature. At the heart of nature is true peace, deep silence. In the midst of silence there is a voice, that of our deep nature. Observe the peace that is established in the silence and depth of nature’s murmurs. Listen to this peace. Can you hear it? When was the last time you surrendered to silence? We are life. Life is within us. We coexist together, for the better.
Thank you Mother Earth.
