During my 1,5 year forest retreat in India the nature guided me back home to the place of my soul that was lost in my previous civilized-rationalized life. My existential unrest has been transformed into peace coming from the experience of the divine that shines through the tremendous beauty of nature. I like to give what I received. We need to re-establish the sacred bond with nature to heal the human soul and protect life. Agni
