    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    At first here is possible to learn from the practice and not from the intellect what means the sentence "everithing is connected".Here we are the guest and the nature is the owner.She can give everything to us and we can take from her with respect,understanding when it's too much and everybody can improve his skills,creativity,sensibility to use less the credit card.

    Inanzitutto qui e' possibile capire nella pratica e non a livello solo intellettuale cosa significhi la frase "tutto e' connesso".In questo posto noi siamo gli ospiti e la natura e' la padrona.Lei puo' darci tutto e noi possiamo prendere da lei ma con il necessario rispetto,capire quando è troppo, e tutti possono coltivare le proprie abilita',creativita' e sensibilita'ed usare meno la carta di credito.

    Auf sehr einfache Weise kann man hier lernen und verstehen, wie alles und auf natuerliche Weise miteinander verbunden ist. Der Eigentuemer ist die Natur und wir sind ihre Gaeste. Sie kann uns alles geben und wir duerfen von ihr nehmen, insofern wir respektvoll mit ihr umgehen. Jede*r kann seine Faehigkeiten, seine Kreativitaet und Sensibilitaet keine Kreditkarte benutzen zu muessen verbessern.
