In the Woods, At the Water - $15 (Free shipping with all orders.)
In their work as psychotherapists, Bill Ryan and Jeanne Lightfoot teach their patients the value of cultivating an ongoing relationship with nature in the midst of day to day living. How a walk at the beach, in the woods, along a river, or time spent in a backyard garden can facilitate our psychological and spiritual healing, help us to know ourselves more deeply and connect us to something greater than our ordinary selves. Patients invariably report that they feel more centered, less depressed, less alone and significantly quieted down as they begin to be in nature more consciously. They discover that a dormant childhood connection to nature as a sanctuary reawakens; that nature walks with their partner can be a catalyst for deeper intimacy; that time spent alone in nature can fulfill their soul’s yearning for solitude and evolve into a spiritual practice.
