Description

"In Nature, Love, Medicine , nearly two dozen writers, poets, scientists, and healers reflect on what loving and needing nature really means to them. Read it, and you'll be stirred to ask the same of your own reflection--in the clearest, quietest pool you can find." --Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us and Countdown

By healing our relationship with nature, we heal ourselves. --Robin Wall Kimmerer

A diverse array of people--psychologists and poets, biologists and artists, a Buddhist teacher and a rock musician--share personal stories that reveal a common theme: when we pay conscious, careful attention to our wider world, we strengthen our core humanity. This practice of natural history leads to greater physical, psychological, and social health for individuals and communities.

Nature, Love, Medicine features writers with varied backgrounds and talents. Notable contributors range from conservationist and author Brooke Williams and award-winning author Elisabeth Tova Bailey to Vietnamese Buddhist monk and teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and internationally known poet Jane Hirshfield.

Thomas Lowe Fleischner , editor of Nature, Love, Medicine , is a naturalist and conservation biologist, and founding director of the Natural History Institute at Prescott College, where he has taught interdisciplinary environmental studies for almost three decades. He edited The Way of Natural History and authored Singing Stone: A Natural History of the Escalante Canyons and Desert Wetlands .

display_description"This book unabashedly declares that love for our biologically and culturally diverse world is a much-needed virtue, an essential need. Collectively, the twenty-three authors--ecologists, psychologists, and educators, poets and artists, the healers and the healed--explore the notion that practicing attentive natural history remains an essential pathway to sanity and health, for both individuals and societies. The book's fundamental premise is that humans are literally born to practice natural history, and are physically, psychologically, and socially healthier when we do."--Page 4 of cover.
