Natural MindfulnessEva Robild
We are all aware that birdsong, rippling water, whispering forests and unbroken horizons are good for the soul, but research now shows a much clearer connection between health and nature. We need to spend time out in the great outdoors to recover, to heal and to be inspired.
In Natural Mindfulness, Eva Robild gives us a factual and personal account of how important nature and her garden is to her and how in difficult times she seeks refuge in beaches and forests where you are not judged and there are no demands. She tells us how we can practice garden therapy by creating a green oasis of our own and how yoga, meditation or a mindful walk through the countryside can fill our bodies with ”green medicine”.
Every chapter ends with simple concrete exercises that bring us closer to nature and our own feelings through, for example, mindfulness, meditation, picking berries, weeding or just walking barefoot.
Eva Robild is a freelance journalist and author who has written over 20 books, mainly about gardening but also nature and stress management. Her interest in gardens arose among the gooseberry bushes and perennials in her grandmother’s garden and she grows edible and decorative plants with an equal amount of enthusiasm.
