Earth Practices (Paperback)
This is a book of practices to do in nature in order to connect more deeply with the natural world, relax, and experience better health and less stress. The book is divided into the 4 seasons. Readers are encouraged to sit with trees, listen to water, carefully observe the changing seasons. The book guides, with safe and detailed descriptions, the reader to venture out in all seasons in order to practice breathing, seeing, hearing, and feeling the natural world in specific ways. These practices open a persons awareness of him or herself as a being among many life forms, all of which are interconnected and have a place in the world. Many of the practices come from native traditions which the author has personally experienced in over 40 years of practice as a healer. The book is useful for both urban and rural dwellers, for those who seldom venture out to those who love spending time outdoors. The practices are useful additions to a wide variety of healers, including allopathic and alternative modalities.
It is a timely offering, possibly helping people value and care deeply for the natural world.
