The Art of Conversation With the Genius Loci looks at the relationship between our spiritual path and our immediate environment.

This is one of the best books on Paganism I have ever read. I have often said to people that if they only ever read one book on Paganism, it should be this one. It is all about how to engage with the landscape you live in, and how to connect with the spirits of place. It offers practical suggestions for deepening your connection with nature. It has reflections on place and spirit of place. Life seen from the perspective of a mouse. How to relate to your local geology, history, and landscape.
