Barbara Meyers lays the foundation for engaging the natural world as wise teacher for both our personal lives and the well-being of the planet. She invites us to enter the world of nature to awaken our senses, our sensibilities, and our soul to answer profound questions regarding the meaning of life. Through stories, musings, and practices woven together through the paradigm of the Native American Medicine Wheel, readers find direction for answering those questions, so that they may bring their unique gifts into the world and become effective stewards of planet Earth.
