Since the course is designed for alternative practitioners it was not too heavy, but for me it was very inspiring. It opened my eyes and my mind to how beautiful nature is, how highly organised it is, how everything is so interconnected, related and influenced by everything else. It made me appreciate life itself even more. Every day I am more amazed by how rich and infinite the process of life is.
