Find peace through this meditative guided journal that will train you to notice and appreciate the wonder of the natural world—without leaving your own neighborhood.
Everyone knows that being in nature can help you feel less anxious, more centered, and at peace. The sound of a waterfall, a swaying green canopy, a distant horizon—all of these things slow your heart rate, open your lungs, and calm your mind. But what if—like most North Americans—you live in a suburb or a city and can’t go into the great outdoors every day?
Naturalist Andrea Debbink will show you that nature is all around you, even in the densest metropolis and will teach you how to find wildness in a city sparrow, beauty in a roadside dandelion, and stillness on a park bench.
Organized by month, this guided journal encourages you to center yourself in the cycle of the seasons through:
- Nature-inspired meditation exercises
- Outdoor activities and crafts
- Flora and fauna trackers
- Weather charts
- Urban foraging tips
This hardcover journal is perfect for throwing in a backpack and taking to the park, featuring a rounded spine for easy writing, a fabric bookmark to keep your place, and a full-color illustrated design that changes with the seasons.
Andrea Debbink has trained as a master naturalist and writes about environmental stewardship, citizen science, and outdoor education. She is also the creator of the Natural Wonder newsletter and the author of the Wild World Handbook series (Quirk Books, 2021 and 2022). She believes that it doesn’t matter where you see nature; it’s seeing nature that matters.
