Whispers on the Mountain is a collection of gifts from Nature, in the form of prose, poetry, and photographs. Its pages will transport you to the small Hawaiian island of Kaua'i, and up to the mountain area kwn as K ke'e, where you'll experience the wild places of Nature. Step into this book and find glimpses of beauty, moments of wonder, and the presence of a very alive natural world. Spending time connecting with Nature is t an indulgent luxury, but the antidote to living in a human-focused world - a world that leaves us feeling over-stressed, over-tired, pre-occupied and too often cut off from the healing energy and vitality of Nature. If you are seeking a sense of well-being, let Whispers on the Mountain speak to your heart and inspire you to bring Nature's touch into your life. Based on years of study of Shamanism, Kapua approaches this book with the mindset of horing the life and awareness in all of the natural world. From her deep and personal connection with Nature, she shares with you some of her experiences in this lush and vibrant environment. The book is divided into five sections, beginning with Moments of Wonder, those special occasions when time seems to stop, and you find yourself immersed in a sense of awe. These are moments that let you step out of your small humanness and become aware that you are a part of a larger Universe, vast, unpredictable, and magical. Kapua next turns to The Elements, with selections about Fire, Water, Earth, and Air, and a look at some selected plants and animals. Each of these is approached, t in some abstract or intellectual way, but as a personal interaction. This is followed by encounters with the Magical Places found in this mountain forest environment. In the section Creating a New Connection, we are encouraged to consider how we relate to this world on which we were born. Then in Cycles and Seasons we step back for a larger overview of our planet and its ever-turning rhythms. In these pages you may find t only a beautiful and intimate vision of Kaua'i, but may also hear the whispers of Nature calling to your own heart.
