Seeing the Beauty

Nature. Observation. Art.

Nature retreat in the Netherlands - October 15-18, 2019

Seeing the Beauty

As you walk along the quiet paths, surrounded by large trees with fallen leaves, you can feel the peace in you and around you. Occasionally, color and appearance are absorbed into your camera lens. In the evening, after a communal meal, you share in the group circle the impressions that beauty has imprinted on you. You get time and place.
 
When you return home, you will find calmness in your suitcases. You'll be recharged and your heart will be wide open. 
In your phone's camera there will be many moments of beauty, laughter and relaxation.
With renewed strength you will return to your daily life with practical and simple tools that will help you grow stronger when necessary.

The Plan

A retreat to create a space that enables, cures and elevates in the spirit of "HaMacom" method – a therapeutic educational system that sees nature as a teacher of life (ha-macom.com).
During the retreat we will learn the best use of the cellphone's camera, guidance by the photographer Alon Levite (
shorer-levite.co.il), photography in nature will serve as a means of quiet observation from the outside, refreshment and a deep encounter between us and the environment.
The stay in the forest will be worked out and expanded using the methods and techniques of "HaMacom" method.
In four days we will spend the restful nature of the Netherlands in the autumn, cook healthy food together, experience a quiet time with ourselves and each other.
