I have been a huge fan of Ruth Allen since I started my business and her words are always inspiring. She is an eco-psychotherapist and counsellor, specialising in nature connection. She lives in the Peak District and her Instagram account @whitepeak_ruth is beautiful. When I saw she was writing a book, I messaged her straight away to ask if I could stock it and here it is, published today! I will be photographing it properly in my spring photoshoot next week, but I couldn’t wait until then to share it with you all. It is such a beautiful hardback book, even the front cover is inspiring. I know you will love this book as much as I know I will!
It is all about our relationship with nature. Reflecting on nature’s unknowable and mysterious qualities, the book explores how we can therapeutically benefit from a deeper connection with nature, finding within it balance, stillness, solitude, resilience, contentment, activity, fearlessness – and our own wild voice.
In addition to practical exercises and mindful activities, there are personal stories and thought-provoking questions that will help understand what it means to be alive in the natural world, and in the moment.
