Being with Trees
Whether on a walk in a city park, local nature preserve, or national wilderness area, the wonders and healing power of nature are accessible to all.
In this special book poet and nature lover Hannah Fries combines her own reflections and guided mindfulness exercises with a curated selection of inspirational writing from poets, naturalists, artists, scientists, and thinkers throughout the centuries and across cultures; including Japanese haiku masters, nineteenth-century European Romantics, American Transcendentalists, and contemporary environmentalists.
Accompanied by beautiful forest photography, and a foreword by Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass, Being with Trees is a distinctive gift that invites frequent revisiting for fresh insights and inspiration.
