How to Connect with Nature is designed to transform the way readers experience the natural world and to encourage a reconnection with our environment. Tristan Gooley strives to reawaken our senses to help us understand and deepen our personal experience of nature, and explains how forming an understanding of the natural world -- its cycles, its conflicts and its relationships -- can enrich our whole lives and our sense of wellbeing. Offering an exciting new perspective, Tristan explores a host of techniques designed to help anyone connect with nature and, going further, with the modern world at large, leading to a greater interest and awareness. He argues that the strongest connection with nature comes when the divisions between an individual and their environment are removed. This beautifully written yet practical book in The School of Life series sets out the three steps to achieving this.
