The experiential event "NATURE ART HEALTH: DISCOVER THE THERAPEUTIC POWER OF CREATING IN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT" will offer us the opportunity to connect more authentically with nature, to create with it and to learn from it. Nature will not only provide us with the space and materials to create but will also be our collaborators in the therapeutic process. It will therefore be a rendezvous with nature, with art, with ourselves, to explore our creative flow that pervades us in the natural environment. Once we feel this flow, it can also accompany us in everyday life, when it is often necessary to use all our creative impulses to find a solution or a way out of various situations. At the same time, it offers us the opportunity and space to expand or transform our view of ourselves, the people around us, and the way of life we live.
The event is organized by members of the Slovenian Association of Art Therapists (SZUT), which works in the field of social, health, educational, cultural and artistic activities as well as in the field of prevention and rehabilitation in health care - strengthening mental health and enriching the socio-cultural life of individuals, groups and communities.
