A warm, welcoming guide to birdwatching and its therapeutic and healing effects from a licensed therapist and amateur birder.As human beings, our instinct is to nest with those we love, migrate where the best opportunities await us, and find our flock for solidarity and support. Yet all of these instincts can become a battle when we are struggling with depression, isolation, and trauma.But what if we could find camaraderie and comfort in our own backyard? What if we could be inspired by peering through the branches and leaves to find a flash of feathers and birdsong?Licensed therapist Tammah Watts shares her emotional journey of overcoming chronic pain and finding resilience by connecting to the natural world of birds. Her revealing exercises, helpful tools, reflection “ponds,” and journal prompts will help you: • Dip your toe into birdwatching from the comfort of your own home and beyond • Reduce symptoms of stress, pain, depression, and anxiety • Increase focus and concentration • Find acceptance and alignment with the spirit and beauty of birds Through the practice of observing and connecting with our feathered friends, we can find a place for reflection, self-discovery, and being grounded in the present.
