Wendy Weiger, Author of the upcoming book, Heaven Beneath Our Feet: Finding God and Healing in the Wild

  • If we open our eyes and our hearts, we see miracles all around us in nature.
  • An intimate relationship with nature heals us on multiple levels. Physical. Emotional. Spiritual.
  • We humans—along with every bird, every tree, every animal—are part of a vast and sacred web of life that sustains us all.
  • But we’re unraveling the web. We’ve been spending nature’s wealth as though it had no end. And we may doom half of Earth’s species to extinction over the next hundred years.
  • If that happens, we will undermine the future of humanity in ways we’re only beginning to understand.
  • To save the wild is to save ourselves.
  • Time is growing short. Will we let the miracles we hold in our hands slip through our fingers?

Read Vision Quest, an excerpt from an early draft of my book, as published in Down East magazine. (pdf version)

    Living Every Season: A Mindful Year in the Maine Woods

    Living Every Season guides readers through the annual cycle of four vividly distinct seasons in the Maine Woods: the frigid white winter; the long, slow reawakening of spring; the lush green summer; and the glorious, almost impossibly bright autumn that fades, inexorably, into the austerity of another winter. Photos range from dramatic vistas of mountains, lakes, and skies to small details casual observers might miss: the delicacy of maple blossoms scattered on spring snow; the earthy colors and rich patterns of a fungus digesting a decaying log; the grace of a shadow cast by small leaves onto a trailside stone.
