The Art of Connecting With Nature emerged from Mark’s desire to have others experience the “living presence” of the natural world. Within these pages you’ll discover 22 co-authors who have established a relationship with nature that reclaims what indigenous people worldwide express as kinship, centeredness, and the ability to make decisions through the eyes of future generations. The book is divided into four experiential themes: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. We invite you to open to whatever chapter calls to you, since each stands on its own. At the end of each section we’ve provided tools, rituals, and practices to help you develop, or enhance, your own relationship with nature. These are activities that have helped us; but in the end, we each have our own journey that cannot be defined by another’s. Visit our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TheArtofConnectingWithNature, to share your experiences, ask questions, or interact with the artists, professors, musicians, authors, ministers, and others who’ve contributed to this collection.
