7 Nature Retreats To Deepen Our Connection with Mother Earth


April 22nd is Earth Day, a valuable day dedicated to celebrating the connection of love between us and Mother Earth... In fact, the whole month of April is celebrated as Earth Month.

But today in particular is recognized as Earth Day to enhance our awareness of the beauty, fragility and irreplaceability of our planet. 

Mother Earth is not only a “home” that offers us the precious gift of life, but also a loving mother who generously shares her wisdom and infinite healing power with us. So, in honor of this meaningful day that reflects her majesty and compassion, we wanted to honor her by looking into some nature retreats that can help us connect with our planet in our own unique way.

These retreats transport us to a dimension where, in the rhythm of nature, we can cleanse our souls and release the heavy burdens of stress. They allow us to rediscover our true essence through the healing power of the natural world. Likewise, they help us support the health of our planet by incorporating sustainable methods that we can use in our daily flow and eco-friendly treatments that nourish our well-being.

Let’s embark on a journey to discover some of these nature retreats that take place in the healing spaces of our Mother Earth...With gratitude...
