Mindful Walking: The Secret Language of Nature

by Alice Peck Author

Walking is one of the things that makes us unique as humans. Our bipedal physiology has been with us for hundreds of thousands of years, and the practice of walking is so much more than just one that allows us to get from point A to point B. It has physical and mental benefits for us, and it can help us connect to the natural world. Author Alice Peck has created this guide to walking, offering the reader numerous ways of conceiving of this practice. From forest-bathing, or walking in the woods, to earthing, or allowing your toes to squelch in the mud, to friluftsliv, or the Norwegian philosophy of outdoor recreation, this book can change the way you think about that most banal and everyday of activities and transform what walking means to you.
