What is Biophilia?

Simply put, it is our connection to nature, but it is more than that. Biophilic design has been found to support cognitive function, physical health and psychological well-being, as well as enhancing mood, creativity and productivity.

The word originates from the Greek, ‘Philia’, meaning ‘love of’. It literally means a love of life or living things. Humans have a deeply ingrained love of nature which is an intuitive and natural drive imprinted into our DNA. We have a physiological need to be in contact with nature and the more-than-human world.

My overarching aim is to share my knowledge and experience to enable people to be the best they can be, reconnecting with themselves and the more than human world. Western culture does not place much value in the ageing process, unlike many other indigenous cultures, where it is still considered a sign of experience and wisdom.
