From the back cover:
In a series of 12 lyrical nature essays, herbalist, writer, and Earth-intuitive Asia Suler illuminates the healing power of the living Earth--and gives us each permission to nurture self-compassion and empathy as forces for personal and ecological healing.
Amidst unprecedented ecological devastation, it's easy to feel hopeless and disconnected. It's easier, still, to forget our inherent goodness or to discount the power of our inborn empathy. For those of us who are highly sensitive people, innately attuned to the workings of the natural world, it can be hard to embrace the belief that we're enough as we are--and that this awareness can heal the Earth.
Drawing lessons from the healing processes that nature itself embodies, Suler reminds us that our goodness, our empathy, our intuitive connections, and our capacity for self-compassion are more than antidotes to despair; they are, in fact, our most potent vehicles for planetary transformation. And as we learn to more deeply nurture and accept ourselves, we unlock our living, healing connections to the Earth.
Combining poetic nature writing with exercises and reflection prompts at the end of each essay, Mirrors in the Earth coaxes us to come as we are: to discover and tend the inherent brilliance and medicine that lives in each of us.
