The experience ‘Religar’ (‘Reconnect’) by the artist Evgenia Emets, which takes place at Lisbon’s Estufa Fria, centers on a range of plants that have important ecological, cultural and spiritual significance in their places of origin, and whose meaning and sphere of influence extends beyond that place of origin.

This experience is part of Eternal Forest, a multidisciplinary artistic project connecting artists, scientists and others interested in the themes of ecology and biodiversity, with the aim of raising awareness about protecting natural spaces.

‘Religar’ takes the public on an immersive, contemplative walk through the Estufa Fria, with the invitation to be in the presence of each plant: through poetry and the telling of stories we enter the deep listening space of plants as they communicate their messages and their essence. The experience also includes a ceremony and an intuitive practice of being with plants, followed by a session of reflection and drawing-writing.
