Review from Common Ground Magazine:
It was Albert Einstein who said, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” With this guiding principle, Wilkes introduces many easy ways to connect with and draw guidance from the natural world around us. By giving thoughtful consideration to the soil we stand on, the foods that sustain us, the rhythms around us, and the sensations within us, Wilkes helps the reader develop a richer relationship with Mother Nature, giving us eyes to see what we never saw before. Laced with humor and wit, the book teaches readers to recognize the life-giving benefits of various plants. For example, English walnuts, rich in brain-supporting omega-3 fats, bear an uncanny resemblance to the brain itself. Nature is full of correlations like this, and Nature’s Secret Messages brings them quickly into focus. By addressing several dimensions of the human experience (our physical needs, emotional and mental well being, spiritual development and more), the book integrates many layers of nature-based wisdom. Well researched and easy to read, Nature’s Secret Messages is brimming with facts, resources, and “awe-ha” moments. Without a doubt, this book will change the way you see the world around you, the choices you make at the grocery store, and your relationship to the forces that sustain you. Are you ready to take Eco-awareness to a whole new level?
