A little while back I was invited to an event that Lola Berry was guest speaking at. For those of you who haven’t heard of Lola, she is an Australian nutritionist, author and television host. She is best known for her book The 20/20 diet and for her keen connection to the environment and Mother Nature.
At the event, as soon as Lola started talking, I was drawn in. She’s warm, intelligent, passionate, and seemed like an all-round great lady. During her talk, she touched on the subject of ‘Biophilia.’ I had never heard of Biophilia before, but within moments I was hooked on the idea. Biophilia is best described as the concept of humans possessing an innate tendency to seek connection with nature and other forms of life. It relates to the subconscious link that we have to other living things and it explains how this is deeply rooted into our biology.
