We are delighted to announce the release of the iBook – Cave & The Contemplator.
Today’s launch also celebrates the 45th anniversary of Earth Day and the 9-year anniversary of eyes4earth. Cave & The Contemplator is derived from Matthew Zylstra’s PhD dissertation (published April 2014).
An evocative journey into nature connectedness.
Adventures into wilderness are as unpredictable as they are profound. This poetic story follows ‘The Contemplator’ on a sojourn into wilder nature. It traces his process of facing anxieties, deep questioning and opening up to the tantalizing wonders revealed through insightful exchanges between nature and soul. The Contemplator’s meaningful experiences invite conversation and reflection on their implications for personal growth and collective learning.
This exploration of direct nature experience serves as an accessible reference for facilitators, practitioners and anyone interested in nature connectedness, deep ecology, ecopsychology, phenomenology, wilderness adventure, sustainability education, outdoor learning and regenerative leadership.
