Mindfulness and the Natural World

Bringing our Awareness Back the Nature

9781782401025

Mindfulness & the Natural World is an invitation for us all to reconnect with life. We are part of the natural world and have forgotten this, in a world where we increasingly live as if they we were separate from the rest of nature.

Losing touch with our natural home is having serious consequences for our own well-being as well as for the well-being of the rest of nature.

A greater awareness of the natural world is essential not only to our own happiness but also to inspire us to care about and protect nature, and develop a more sustainable world.

Through an introduction to the practice of mindfulness, personal anecdotes and proven insights,  this book explores how we can reconnect with nature around us and within us and how this is key to finding greater contentment and happiness in our everyday lives.

“For a busy person who loves walking and nature this book is both a joy and a challenge. A joy because it reminds us just what it is to experience the natural world with your mind and your heart, and with your senses open to the experiences around you… But it is also a challenge especially to busy people like me that we must stop rushing and learn to empty our minds from the clutter of a thousand pressures to allow the world around us to exercise its calming, healing influence.”

Dame Fiona Reynolds, Former Director-General of The National Trust

    This is a truly beautiful book. It makes one contemplate the meta-view of life, to slow down and to appreciate the power of nature. I loved it and can testify to the transformational change it evokes. I can’t wait for The Art of Mindful Birdwatching…
