"...We tried an Autumn hike (Autumn Equinox-non-atttachment and letting go). My friend enjoyed the silence soo much we didn't even talk on the way home except to say she needed to express the experience with words. I suggested a circle i.e. talking piece or journal. We used the talking peice. It was a great way to finish the experience in a sacred space and have an ending rather than keep talking about the experience. We hope to do more walks together. Thanks again Margaret for sharing your book."
"Just wanted to let you know the deep energetic affect the contemplative hike I took the other day had...I think putting questions about my relationship with my dad "out there" (nature/universe) for an answer moved significant energy blocking me from moving forward."
"Spending time outdoors can be therapeutic, especially when guided by Emerson's simple, yet meaningful thought-exercises. Sharing this book with friends and neighbors is a great way to start important discussions about the living world in your local community."
