Meeting the Spirit of Nature

"Bergplaas is a powerful and wild place where our connection with nature and the oneness of all life, is alive and can be experienced and felt. It is here that we can allow the land and all its life-forms to be our prime teacher. A space to connect to our own true nature and recognise that 'solving the environmental crises' starts with a commitment to deep reconciliation through the heart." - Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld
