Spending time in nature makes people happier and healthier!
Nature Spirit Walks encourages access to nature through fun and simple sensory activities linked to nature imagery and symbolism. Themed around the twenty-two Major Arcana of the tarot, the Nature Spirit Walks approach provides a fun, tactile, and visual way to randomly select from the 22 themed sensory nature activities described in this book. These flexible, experiential activities are designed to be completed in as little or as much time as you want (as few as five minutes) and can be enjoyed in a variety of settings, whether in the backcountry or the backyard. Skillfully blending naturalism with spirituality, science and nature lovers alike will relish exploring these guided activities in their favorite outdoor settings to reinforce their bonds with nature.
