A lovely book.

I happened to to start reading it while staying in a house in the woods which was a fortunate coincidence(?), as almost all of the meditations involve a natural setting setting, and that might have been a bit frustrating in the city!

I read the book slowly, one short chapter at a time, savoring it. I attempted some of the meditations (there’s one in each chapter). For sure, reading the book changed my walks and meanderings for the better.

I feel it’s a book I will return to again a

I felt such excitement and joy reading this book...so many great exercises and meditations and a simple and elegant wisdom that comes from the author's many years studying Buddhism. I feel these practices marry well with my own terrapsychological practices. ...more

Have just read a few passages and already am enjoying this fine book;
like a dharma friend to join on a hike anywhere, 'in nature'.

Det här är en underbar bok om naturen och vårt förhållande till den. Under läsningen hinner man tänka mycket på var man befinner sig i livet och hur man tar vara på det. Att börja tillbringa mer tid utomhus är för övrigt bland de bästa val jag gjort i mitt liv; rekommenderas!

Bäst blir boken när Coleman är riktigt personlig och talar om andra erfarenheter än sitt förhållande till naturen. På några ställen mot slutet hade jag gärna sett att han valt sådana exempel istället för sina evinnerliga na

I love the way he describes being in nature with such detail to make you really relish it when you're out there. It's an important reminder for me to slow down and appreciate the beauty and wildness as a gift ..too often ignored and taken for granted. ...more

I’d give this one 4 stars. This book goes deep into practice so it’s a bit heavy and took me awhile to finish, but overall I really enjoyed it. It’ll be a reference book for me, one I revisit and come back to in the future.
