The Healing Power of Nature
Reviewed in the United States on September 19, 2018
While reading this book, I found myself mesmerized by the picture that the author painted in my mind about his experiences! Although I would have loved to see pictures throughout or a section dedicated to the places he describes, the pictures weren't needed. And, as the author points out, would have taken him out of the present moment anyway from being in communion with nature. :)
My favorite type of vacation is one out in nature where I am camping, hiking, & hot springing & when I read his descriptive reflections it makes want to do the solo journeys I used to take when I want to college. I am craving the silence, the stillness & the surrender that being alone in nature can bring. The quieting of the mind & the clarity of thought & purpose that comes with taking time away to unplug.
I am hoping this author decides someday to lead guided journeys that start in a group setting, disperse to their very own solo journeys, & come back afterward to connect & reflect on their experiences. :)
So here's the deal... if you love nature, it's just simply healing for you, OR you've never stepped a foot outside in your life this book will remind you of your true authentic nature & why it's so important to reconnect with yourself in nature OFTEN.
It might also remind you to find gratitude for this connection by protecting the beautiful wilderness places that have healed, nourished & uplifted you. :)
