Wild Kinship: Biophilia, Inner Knowings and Our True Nature (Paperback)
Wild Kinship sheds light on how our present human tale intertwines with our human-nature oriented relationship of our ancestral past. Embodying the spirit of a soul afflicted with biophilia, it is an illumination of our true human nature.
Through personal experience and observations of wild nature, encounters with wildlife and childlike curiosity, the author gains insight into our true human nature in a wild calling to understanding the language of Nature.
Interwoven with fascinating scientific investigations, this book reveals how the many crises we face today point us to our greatest kinship, from anxiety disorders to pandemics. By readopting species-typical behavior in how we interact with the living world around us, and with each other, we can help mend a broken world and a broken people.
