nature as healer

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”
– William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida

Humans delight in nature’s beauty, of course, and all forms of life benefit from nature’s bounty. But shaped by nature’s hand, we are bound by her rules.

This category is a taste of the breathtaking complexity of nature’s design – a collection of entries addressing the fascinating forces, conditions, and pressures that govern us through this design. 

Nature has a cornucopia of charms, tricks, and secrets, which, even if we’re not consciously aware of it, powerfully influence how we function. A vast and interconnected balance of forces assures this grand process.

When we live in harmony with the natural order, we thrive. When we downplay the power of nature, the connections upon which so much of our planet turns are weakened – and may be lost. These connections are essential to our survival.
