Celebrates the healing power, timeless wisdom, and unparalleled beauty of Nature through beautiful photographs and inspiring text.
Embrace Your Inner Wild: 52 Reflections for an Eco-Centric World is a brilliant, full-color book of photographs and reflections that invite you to seek out wildness wherever you find it – within or without.
Don Moseman’s spectacular photographs feature the wildlife and terrain of Marin County, California: the fiercely intelligent eyes of the coyote, the spiraling hawk in the supine sky, a bobcat prowling through golden grasses. These photos are paired with reflections by Mary Reynolds Thompson to awaken the reader to wonder. And to oneness.
REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
“This is a book of astonishment, reverence, and freedom. Familiar and less familiar beings and places are alike made bright here, burnished by a seeing made vision, a seeing made also more precise by being shared. These pages enact an invitation that leads inward and also outward. I looked, I read, I lingered… then reached for my hiking boots, to go out at once and see more deeply and freely for myself.” ~ Jane Hirshfield, poet and editor of Women in Praise of the Sacred
“Each turn of the page brings stunning prose poems and breathtaking images. Mary Reynolds Thompson’s connection to her own “inner wild” is transparent as sunrise, brazen as a bullfinch, and soul-stirringly, achingly gorgeous.” ~ Kathleen Adams, Director, Center for Journal Therapy, and author of the bestselling Journal to the Self: Twenty-Two Paths to Personal Growth

Let this wonderful book rejuvenate you from the inside out!” ~ Osprey Orielle Lake, author of Uprisings for the Earth: Reconnecting Culture with Nature
