The aim was to understand and experiment nature through intuition and perception. Noting the changes she underwent from living and dialoguing with nature and noting the healing effect and letting this be her creative guide. The book includes more than anything else paintings, accompanied by personal notes, the preface written by Dr. Robert Svoboda, an essay of the sociologist Roland Playle and an interview with the naturalist and botanist Anand Gopinath.
