I am excited to announce to you all that my new book, The Art of Mindful Birdwatching – Reflections on Freedom and Being has now been officially RELEASED! It is now available for purchase here.
Birds are wonderful and my hope is that this book will inspire many more to delight in their inherent beauty. Rest assured, you don’t need any experience or knowledge of birds – the book is addressed to experienced birdwatchers and novices alike. You simply need an open heart and mind.
As well as enjoying the wonders of birdwatching, The Art of Mindful Birdwatching is about discovering that we can all learn from birds to welcome greater well-being into our lives. I invite you on a journey from your garden, through countryside, forests, the coast, the mountains and the seasons – with birds by our sides – to explore the many different aspects of what it truly means to be ‘mindful’ – to be present with our senses, to be compassionate, to let go, accept and embrace our experiences of life with authenticity. Birds can be inspirational when it comes to the practice of mindfulness.
Finally, for me, watching birds is not only an endless source of wonder and wisdom, but also the perfect entry point to rekindle our sense of what it’s like to be truly human – and an integral part of the natural world. The world desperately needs more moments of communion between people and birds.
Birds are around us wherever we are. May you all spend a least a moment every day gifting them your full attention and enjoy whatever you encounter. You won’t be dissapointed!
