“All good things come from stillness.”

Listening to Nature will open your eyes and your heart to the serenity and joy of the natural world. This new edition of the beloved and bestselling classic has been extensively rewritten and includes dozens of new photographs.

Joseph Bharat Cornell, author of the classic Sharing Nature with Children, offers adults a sensitive and lively guide to deeper awareness of nature. His simple, transformative exercises, combined with stunning photographs and quotations from famous naturalists, will help you experience nature in a whole new way. This book features nature photographs by award-winning photographer, John Hendrickson.

Use this book and its gentle encouragement for personal nature communion, or as an aid for teaching nature awareness to children and adults. Learn to be still and silent, to absorb the wonder of your natural surroundings. You will feel and appreciate—and become one with—the great outdoors: its woodlands, mountains, streams, and fields. Let this book transport your spirit to the heart of crystal clear springs and ancient forests—and to your own still center of peach within.
