This audiobook is about connecting with nature and nature beings to help heal us and the earth. It:
- Provides experiential practices to communicate with nature and access the creative power of the earth.
- Shares transformative wisdom teachings from conversations with nature beings, such as snowy owl, snake, blackberry, mushroom, and glacial silt, exploring the role of each in bringing balance to the planet.
Nature and the earth are conscious. They speak to us through our dreams, intuition, and deep longings. By opening our minds, hearts, and senses we can consciously awaken to the magic of the wild, the rhythms of nature, and the profound feminine wisdom of the earth. We can connect with nature spirits who have deep compassion and love for us, offering their guidance and support as we each make our journey through life.
Renowned shamanic teachers Sandra Ingerman and Llyn Roberts explain how anyone can access the spirit of nature whether through animals, plants, trees, or insects, or through other nature beings such as mist or sand. They share transformative wisdom teachings from their own conversations with nature spirits, such as snowy owl, snake, blackberry, mushroom, and glacial silt, revealing powerful lessons about the feminine qualities of nature and about the listener's role in the healing of the earth. They provide a wealth of experiential practices that allow each of us to connect with the creative power of nature. Full of rich imagery, these approaches can be used in a backyard, in the wilderness, in a city park, or even purely through imagination, allowing anyone to communicate with and seek guidance from nature beings no matter where you live.
By communing and musing with nature, we learn how to speak to the spirit that lives in all things, bringing balance to us and the planet. By tapping into the feminine wisdom of the earth, we evoke a deep sense of belonging with the natural world and cultivate our inner landscape, planting the seeds for harmony and a natural state of joy.
“At this time of global ecological crisis, the Earth is urgently calling to us to be awake and reconnect with her ancient wisdom. Speaking with Nature is a beautiful response to that call, helping us to listen to the divine feminine and her ways of knowing, and to the spirit world that is all around us. These stories and practices speak to the real need of the time, relearning how to live in sacred companionship with our magical and mysterious inner and outer Earth.” (Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, PhD, Sufi teacher and coauthor of Spiritual Ecology)
“Speaking with Nature is potent medicine. Written in collaboration by two deeply wise and intentional women, this book is abundant with practical insights, skill-building, and stories to deepen readers’ relationships with themselves (the feminine and the sacred) through nature. I was immediately immersed in its accessible, intimate storytelling style and content and couldn’t put it down. Whether you are new to Earth Wisdom or shamanism or an experienced practitioner, this book is sure to delight. I LOVE this book!” (Nina Simons, cofounder of Bioneers and editor of Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart)
“To talk about the sacred in simple, sincere terms is itself a revolutionary act. What touches me most in this book is the writers’ daring. It’s their courage at expressing what all of us experience in private, magical moments but often don’t dare to repeat to ourselves - let alone anyone else. To discover our own inner nature, and how it’s one with the nature outside us, isn’t just a sweet and blissful process. It can take us right to the edges of grief or sickness, but that’s where the healing lies." (Peter Kingsley, author of Reality and A Story Waiting to Pierce You)
