Voices With Impact presents: Landscapes and Mindscapes
The landscapes around us and our physical environments have a direct impact on our psychological health. Research is beginning to recognize what many of us have always known in our bodies: the healing power of natural environments to reduce stress, help us cope with pain, and ameliorate symptoms of depression and anxiety. Acknowledging the influential power of our natural surroundings, what are the implications for immigrants who are transplanted to foreign landscapes vastly different from those which feel like “home”? Filmmakers Fan Sissoko, Hao Zhou, and Adán Ávalos explore the healing power of nature as well as feelings of belonging and home tied to landscapes.
