Scandinavian Cultural Center presents: Connecting with Nature the Norwegian Way
March 27 @ 1:00 pm
Join author Oliver Luke Delorie to discuss his book, Fruiluftsliv: Connect with Nature the Norwegian Way.
Translated from Norwegian as “free life air,” friluftsliv highlights the basic need for humans to get outside and connect with the natural world. It’s not about conquering nature, as in climbing the highest mountain, or about camping and other activities: it’s about truly finding harmony and becoming one with the outdoors. Whether you live in the city or out in the countryside, this inspiring guide will show you how to enter a friluftsliv state of mind. It explains how spending time in nature and feeling its rhythms, even when it’s something as simple as a magical Sunday walk in a local park, can improve our well-being and encourage productive self-reflection.
