This warm, vibrant book reveals the stunning healing power of nature in a compelling collection of stories and photos. The author is an experienced psychotherapist who, due to a back injury, was forced to abandon her therapist's couch and to walk for therapy. This book chronicles how, during her extended strolls through nature, she discovered the ingenious ability of trees to grow around obstacles and how she used this kwledge to heal herself and others. Each of the 21 chapters describes a different aspect of the healing process and is matched by a corresponding tree image from the author's photographic work. Readers will learn how to look at their natural environment with fresh eyes, discover their own self-healing powers and find creative ways to master their lives, whether living in the city or in the countryside. Practical lessons are offered to psychotherapists, alternative healers and health care professionals, and the book's meditative, poetic style make it an inspiring read for anyone with an interest in spiritual growth.
