Here-and-now in our everyday life

by Hans Akerblom 02 Oct, 2019

Many of us have probably reflected on how good we feel when we are out in nature. The scenery, the scents, the silence. We are here-and-now. One with nature.


Still, we often end up in our office, in the car, watching TV or being tempted to check our smartphones. Always available and filled with both necessary and unnecessary information. We may accept it as part of our modern lifestyle.

Many enjoy nature on holidays, but in order to balance the city life with the here-and-now moments in nature, we need to refuel nature in between. A walk in the park, a jog under the autumn leaves, sitting somewhere in nature and taking in what's around us with all our senses.


Taking ”nature” back into town will most likely help us to work for a sustainable and developing society, a workplace with constructive relationships and good relationships with family and friends.


A few years ago, I had the privilege of working with Bill Plotkin in Tarrytown, New York. In the book Nature and the Human Soul – Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World he writes about our relationship with nature.
