Sale price$16.95

Cornell's classic bestseller, Sharing Nature with Children, sparked a worldwide revolution, connecting hundreds of thousands of educators and children with the renewing powers of Nature.

Now The Sky and Earth Touched Me will work similar wonders with adult nature lovers.

Cornell invites readers, through their senses and intuition, to launch their own exploration into a magical world through exercises that can be used by individuals and professionals such as educators, naturalists, health practitioners, and religious leaders.

As readers practice each of the exercises, they will experience invaluable nature awareness principles. While Part One is designed for personal practice, Part Two contains exercises that can be shared with a friend or a group of friends.

There is a tremendous power in these exercises. Those who practice them enthuse: “I felt euphoria, and that I was one with everything.” “It made me feel like I was actually a part of the sand and ocean. I was moving with the waves.” “I found myself expanding farther and farther into nature.” “The exercise slowed down my observations. It sounded so simple, yet it was so strong.” “I knew that I belonged to the forest. I could feel the tree breathing, and enjoyed a sense of unity with it.”

About the Author

Joseph (Bharat) Cornell

From his earliest years, Joseph (Bharat) Cornell felt a sensitive attunement with the mysteries and beauties of nature. As a boy, he spent much time exploring the marshes, orchards, and mountains near his home in northern California. During the early 1970s, he designed his own Bachelor of Science degree program in nature awareness at California State University at Chico.

The nature awareness methods featured in Cornell’s Sharing Nature Book Series are used by millions of parents, educators, naturalists, and youth and religious leaders all over the world. Mr. Cornell’s second book, Listening to Nature, has inspired thousands of adults to deepen their relationship with nature. 

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service selected his first book, Sharing Nature with Children®, as one of the 15 most influential books—published from 1890 to today—that has connected children to nature. Other authors honored in the exhibit include Rachel Carson and Ernest Thompson Seton.

Joseph Cornell is the founder and president of Sharing Nature Worldwide, one of the planet’s most popular and influential environmental education programs. He is the honorary president of Japan Nature Game Association that has 10,000 trained Sharing Nature leaders and 224 regional associations. Japan’s national elementary science curriculum promotes Sharing Nature experiences as a way to help students “get close to nature” and “love nature.”
