Article: What it means to work in harmony with nature

Keeping in touch with nature makes people feel more alive and happy. That feeling of vitality and well-being is necessary for the life of all human beings, as well as for their health. It is therefore important that each of you and your family stay in harmony with nature for as long as possible.
