Desir (swish), Akar (root), Debur (waves) is all about human meditation as a means of getting intimate with nature by feeling the vibes and listening to the sounds of nature carefully: the sound of sand, the sound of roots and the sound of the waves crashing. In a situation of information terror during this fast-paced and changing pandemic, humans need to calm down, tuning to a slower tempo by listening to nature’s sounds again. The purpose is to stay awake in the present, balance the temper and avoid wasting energy.
