“I’ve crafted this book with care and love, and I hope it will guide you on a creative journey into the natural world around you. I’ve drawn on traditions of mindfulness, self-care and forest bathing, informed by new research into nature connection, to create a mixed media art course I hope you’ll love. I’m joined by twelve fabulous guest artists who work in ritual, land art, and various other artistic media which makes this course-book extra rich and inspiring.” – Emma Burleigh
