Love, Nature, Magic will blow your mind and open your heart.' John Grogan, international bestselling author of Marley & Me'Maria Rodale encourages us all to reach beyond our full potential by diving into the depths of our existential selves.' Diana Beresford-Kroeger, author of To Speak for the TreesIn Love, Nature, Magic, organic advocate and former CEO of a global health and wellness company, Maria Rodale combines her love of nature and gardening with her experience in shamanic journeying, embarking on an epic adventure to learn from plants, animals and insects - including some of the most misunderstood beings in nature. Maria asks them their purpose and listens as they show and declare what they want us humans to know. From Thistles to Snakes, Poison Ivy to Mosquitoes, these nature beings convey messages that are relevant to every human, showing us how to live in balance and harmony on this Earth. Maria's journeys include conversations with: Mugwort * Vulture * Bat * Rabbit * Lanternfly * Lightning Bug * Osage Orange * Deer * Paper Wasp * Dandelion * Tick * Groundhog * Milkweed * And more!Through journeys filled with surprises, humour and foibles, follow Maria's evolution from being annoyed with to accepting - and even falling in love with - our most difficult neighbours (including human ones). Along the way, she tells her own story of how she learned about shamanic journeying and its near-universal manifestation in traditional cultures worldwide. She describes what her experiences of shamanic journeying are like - simply, honestly and with a touch of irreverence.
