Fire relaxes us and helps us to connect.
It is good to see studies that show what so many of us already, inherently know.
In research carried out by the University of Alabama "226 adults across three studies with respect to viewing simulated muted-fire, fire-with-sound, and control conditions" "Results indicated consistent blood pressure decreases in the fire-with-sound condition, particularly with a longer duration of stimulus, and enhancing effects of absorption and prosociality. Findings confirm that hearth and campfires induce relaxation as part of a multisensory, absorptive, and social experience."
This study shows that when you can't get outside, just viewing and listening to a crackling campfire can produce a similar effect.
Through cathartic art, you can express your emotions and let the fire symbolically consume them.
These are just a few reasons there is healing power in Art & Nature through the Element of Fire
