Thinking and Feeling from Within Nature

Dear Friends,

With the recent report by the UN climate panel, it becomes more urgent than ever to change our consciousness of nature and our activity within it. Arguably, the source of all of our current challenges lies in our inability to do this.

We need to think and feel from *within* nature rather than *about* it, from the outside. As difficult, or even impossible, it may seem to do this, it is possible and we have a human lineage of those who travelling ahead of us who have done so. I collected some pioneers of this different way of being conscious in my most recent book Wild Wisdom. A link to the book on this site appears below.

If you have the book and like it, please consider posting a review on Amazon or your other online source. If you don’t have it, well….enough said!
