This week on “Let Me Say This About That,” Marla DeVries and Mary Hopfner-Thomas recap episode 83, which features a conversation between Susan Ryan and Tammy Marshall, founder and CEO of Biophilia Pharma, a company that explores the healing power between nature and humans, as well as the benefits of non-pharmacological approaches to wellbeing.
DeVries and Hopfner-Thomas take a deeper dive into the many topics that Marshall mentions in her conversation with Ryan. DeVries takes a closer look at the definition of biophilia and Attention Restoration Theory—including a study during the pandemic at Mount Sinai—and looks at soft fascination and rewilding.
They both explore biophilic design and its three categories and 15 patterns.
