Instinctively most of us know that being in nature is good for us—for our body, mind, and spirit. It rejuvenates and refreshes us and can make us feel at peace. Now scientific studies are providing evidence of what we instinctively know to be true: that spending time in nature is not only important for our health and happiness, but that feeling a connection with nature leads us to contribute to the health of nature as well.
However, what happens when we can’t get “into the wild” as much as we need to. Natural elements in our surroundings such as plants and pictures of natural elements have been shown to help. The power of our imagination can transport us into nature as well. When we reach out to nature with our awareness, our energy and consciousness resonates with that of nature, of Earth, and that makes our natural functions work better and removes the unnatural stress we put on ourselves with ungrounded thoughts and worries.
In honor of Earth Day this month, we bring you books and CDs dedicated to earth and nature. Through meditations and principles, they will help you become one with nature and become inspired to give back to the nature that heals us.
All of these titles are now available in the Specials section for 24% to 40% off.
