Touching Earth

Touching the bark of a tree, walking bare-foot on earth, observing a flower, cleansing our legs with plants in a pond, and drinking a cup of floral tea Sensuous experiences with natural elements can bring about healing, whether it be caressing a soft flower petal or a rough tree bark, drinking a cup of warm tea or washing ourselves in cool water. Taking the cue of the rhythm and pace from the natural soundscapes, the gestures we documented in this simple film are a few personal ways that allow us to draw our attention to where we are in the present moment. They are ways in which we seek pause in our lives to care for ourselves and the natural elements we are surrounded by. They are our attempts to breathe a little lighter, and live a little deeper.
