Welcome Andres!
My favorite place is outdoors. There is something about the sounds and smells that sooth and move me. I am excited to read your book.

My poet partner needs your book. I'm trying to engage him in helping me build our forest garden and get back in touch with nature, but he's always glued to his computer and never goes outside. He's a microwave and fast-food kind of guy, and I need help turning him around. Appealing to his desire to be more creative might be the ticket.

Glad to see more people are waking up to the natural world around us that has the most profound affect to us all. Looking forward to listening or reading about Andre Edwards book, Renewal: "How Nature Awakens Our Creativity, Compassion, and Joy".

Welcome Andres!  I look forward to learning more about this subject.  It's something most people know intuitively, but we don't have much to back our assertion other than intuition.

Welcome Andre!  I watched the videos over on your book page and the ones about outdoor kindergarten are sooo... valid. There were no programs like that locally when my sons were young, but I had read a little about what was happening in Europe and recognized how much both of them would have benefited from being in an active, outdoor classroom. That would have been on top of them riding their bikes about a mile to school.

Hi all. Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm looking forward to sharing the ideas from my new book, Renewal, and really looking forward to your questions, comments and ideas regarding the impact that we derive from being in nature. One of my intentions in the book is to show the numerous ways that nature impacts us --- ranging from the awe and beauty of nature to the health benefits to how to better coexist with the natural world. I'm also curious to hear about your own experiences in nature and how your activities in nature help you in your daily life.

I find fractal forms to be one of the most source of joy in nature! A taste of the infinite...

Nice week and look forward to it!

Fractals are quite amazing! I've always enjoyed books that show the patterns in nature (Patterns in Nature by Philip Ball and On Growth and Form by D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson.
I want to give everyone a heads up that I will be traveling all day tomorrow and off-line. I'm looking forward to resuming our conversation on Thursday.

I look forward to reading your book Andre.   I was shocked recently to find out that the most important thing to a group of children in grade four was a room with a plug in it so your book is very timely!

Some are very obvious as the aeaonium I posted in another thread, or the romanesco....
But in nature we can learn to see ALL of them, even when more discreet!

Actually I am also writing a book about how to use nature in connexion to our daily life for self-regulation + act for nature and life without being in eco-anxiety, oeverwhelm and powerlessness! Part of it will be based on how we use our nervous system compared to animals, so that we can use it properly too.

Same as what indicates your title and same as the line of this forum, it will not be about being angry at bad guys and not about focussing on what's wrong...

I seem to have trouble remembering the name, "romanesco" so I'm always calling that broccoli, "Fibonacci Broccoli". My husband hadn't seen it before, but as soon as he did, he got the reference.

I wrote something there already Nicole ,although i’ve not finished the book yet. It has these questions and activities at the end of chapters and reading the third chapter about awe and beauty opened up something in me which i describe. I thought i put it there, if i was an author i’d like to know my readers to be inspired by what i write. Know you’ve struck that chord.
I might put it on Amazon reviews
