Connecting with the Energy of Nature – One-day Introductory Workshop

This one-day workshop is an approach to perceive the energy of nature and its healing powers. During the day, experiential activities will help the participants to understand and enhance their perception of energy in themselves and in nature, particularly with trees, and their connection to their intuition. The participants will also practice their connection to trees and to earth (grounding) and learn how to recharge themselves with the energy of nature.

5-day Energy of Nature – Level I is available for those who would like to have an in-depth understanding of this topic.

Teacher: Dr. Claire Elouard

Dr. Claire Elouard from France spent her early childhood in Senegal, Africa, and later studied in France. She has a Master’s degree in Biology and a Ph.D. in vegetal ecology from Universities in France. She conducted her field research for her Ph.D. in Indonesia, and afterward spent eight years doing research in forest pathology and ecology in Malaysia and South India. Subsequently, she directed an environmental project in the Mumbai area in India, from 2001 to 2015. She has been coming to KFBG for over 10 years delivering her workshops on the “Energy of Nature”.

Dr. Elouard has been deeply connected with nature since childhood. She later developed her perception of nature’s energy and deepened it by learning about the Hindu philosophy on the five elements and their corresponding chakras. She has been teaching people to communicate with nature and perceive its energy since 2004 in India, France, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and China.

About Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden: Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) spreads over 148 hectares of land on the northern slopes of Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong’s highest mountain, near the town of Tai Po.
KFBG has a deep-set valley between two ridges, with a stream running steeply down through the forest. On the slopes there are forest, theme gardens, vegetable terraces, 8km of walking trails, 9km of roads, and conservation and educational facilities.
The Farm was established in 1956 to provide agricultural aid to farmers in need of support to help them lead independent lives; and to provide leisure and educational experience for the public. The theme gardens were designed and planted from the 1960’s onwards, and through planting, natural process and protection from fire, what was once barren scrubland is now mature forest. Visitors are welcome.
