Being with Trees: Awaken Your Senses to the Wonders of Nature; Poetry, Reflections & Inspiration

by Hannah Fries Author and Robin Wall Kimmerer Author

A welcoming invitation to slow down with mindfulness exercises and thoughtful reflections on the wonders and healing powers of nature. Nature’s gifts can be accessible to anyone, whether through a city park, a local nature preserve, or a National Wilderness Area. In this guided journey of prompts, poetry, meditations, and more, poet Hannah Fries helps you to foster the practice of mindful observation in your own life. Featuring beautiful color photography and excerpts from scientists, artists, naturalists, and other nature lovers—from Japanese haiku masters to European Romantics to American transcendentalists—and a foreword by Braiding Sweetgrass author Robin Wall Kimmerer.
