Everything you could ask about Nature's symbolism (to you)Feb 26, 2006
By Kat Spring
I was on vacation in NW Canada Rockies area and discovered this book in a little shop, and I couldn't leave the country without it (just in case I couldn't find it quick enough in the US). It's beyond "plants" you ID with. There's ceremonies (like making a staff -- or celebrating Solstice etc), a dictionary of landscapes (why are you drawn to oceans), magical rhythms (like seasons, angels, etc) ... even the meaning of numbers in nature (why did you plant two birches?) And of course the expected definition of plants, trees, flowers, etc. (Marigold: "keynote: words have healing power; sacrifice out of love if necessary." "It is a flower of love and sacrifice")

A great workApr 14, 2007
By Jen Arpin
I really really liked this book. It was relatively aimed at Wiccans and Pagans, but it had very nice information, both of a spiritual nature, and scientifically so, about all sorts of herbs, flowers, and trees. Some of the exercises seemed a little weird to me, but to each his own- someone might really benefit from these. I see the outdoors as an even more beautiful place after reading this book. Its definately worth buying!

Finding Spiritual in Everyday LifeJan 03, 2007
By kathy holleman
After reading this book, you will not look at the world the same. Andrews points out simple ways to find the Divine in the everyday. A simple walk outside in your yard can be an act of worship!

Wonders of NatureNov 18, 2010
By Self Helper
"Live your life"
This book tells us about the wonders of nature, animals and the hidden spirit worlds. Two great exercises for calming your mind and body, information for nature gifts are here for you. Guided meditations and nature visualations make this book a valuable tool to learn and grow. Ted Andrews presents nature and it's glory in a perfect way. The book has one problem-the descriptions of flowers, trees and landscapes must come from your own interpreting,from your own understanding, from your own memories, not what the author suggests. In general, very good book for wonders of nature.

An important resource!Jun 04, 2009
By Colleen Deatsman
"Circle of Life Counseling and Healing Services"
Just like my copy of Animal Speak, Nature Speak has come loose at the binder and has separated into several different sections now from so much use! As a shamanic practitioner and teacher, Nature Speak is opened and perused and read and reread at least 20 times per week. This resource is a must to own as you will want to look things up over and over again along your spiritual journey. As an author of several books on shamanism and healing, Seeing in the Dark: Claim Your Own Shamanic Power Now and in the Coming Age, Energy for Life: Connect with the Source (Next Step), and Inner Power: Six Techniques for Increased Energy & Self-Healing I have a deep appreciation for the concise and beauitful way Ted shares his gifts of explanation and description of the gifts of Nature and Spirit with the world. Sometimes information received through journeys or direct knowing is difficult to understand and interpret. Having a resource such as this to use as a guidepost along the personal journey is a real blessing. Thank you Ted!
