Kateryna Popkova – Mindfulness, inner resources through connection with nature and changes we should make to stop ecological disaster.
Hanna Viktoria Aus – Nature and our interaction with it, our wholeness.
What was the biggest learning moment of the event for you?
Epp Libe – How only one person, by making small steps, can create massive impact!
Kateryna Popkova – It’s really was one great learning moment – every moment of program was full of sense, experience and desire to embody changes.
Hanna Viktoria Aus – The biggest learning moment was to hear my body, what movement, food ect. it needs. Second was about our planet, nature – that we need to save.
Do you have any plans to continue being active in the field? If yes, what?
Epp Libe – Mindfulness and nature-based methods are and will be part of my working field in nature tourism.
Kateryna Popkova – Yes, of course. I’d like to combine the work I do with people as embodiment facilitator with methods and practices we had there. I plan to make more nature-based activities and to increase human connection with themselves, each other and nature. I believe this can help to change the world ecological situation as well.
Hanna Viktoria Aus – Yes i have. I started using in my life some rules (ask myself plain questions about how I feel, what I need, and then. Like creating a space with friends and changing experience about using planet resources. In work with kids, and adults I use body movement and ideas from this project.
Would you recommend it to your friends? If yes, why? If not, why not?
Epp Libe – Of course! This experience doesn’t only give you new knowledge, new friends and people to work with in the near future. It gives you the opportunity to connect more deeply with your inner self, body and mind. It boosts your awareness about your abilities.
Kateryna Popkova – Yes, because I am really inspired of it, I’d like to share and I am sure all of us need such experience.
Hanna Viktoria Aus – Ofcourse 🙂 because it was a wonderful experience. I learned some things that I brought into my life. It was about self awareness, about mind, what helps me live more openly. Was nice to meet other people with same thoughts what units and we can be in contact to come up with something
Other comments or anything else you would like to share? You can answer in your mother tongue, if you want!
