Mindfulness in Nature helps readers separate themselves from their busy lives, and allows them to engage in a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with the natural world around them through meditative practice.

Now more than ever, with the constant distractions that abound in modern life—from smart phones to social media—it is imperative we seek the solace and comfort of nature for our well-being. The Japanese have a term for it: Shinrin-yoku or "Forest Bathing".

Mindfulness experts Dr. Nina Smiley and David Harp have created a new guide called Mindfulness in Nature which provides a meaningful way to nurture ourselves through a sense of spaciousness, calm, and connection with the out-of-doors.

Penned from the breathtaking natural setting of Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, Mindfulness in Nature affords readers access to wisdom from dozens of notable authors, philosophers and poets – including Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, and Walt Whitman – on the important themes of nature, spirituality, simple beauty and joyful living.

More than just a walk in the woods, Mindfulness in Nature is a carefully crafted and deliberate approach to achieve better health and well-being and is ideal for all ages.

About the Authors:

Nina Smiley, Ph.D., has made it her life’s work to bring mindfulness to real people in the real world. After earning her doctoral degree in psychology at Princeton University, Nina taught at the University of Maryland and worked for the American Psychological Association before her path led to Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY (www.mohonk.com), a unique Victorian castle resort founded in 1869, where she is now Director of Mindfulness Programming. Nina’s work in mindfulness has been seen in O, the Oprah Magazine, Shape, Real Simple, Marie Claire, and The New York Times. Nina leads programs and teaches private classes on simple and effective mindfulness meditation techniques that can be used anytime and anywhere.

David Harp, M.A., is the author of more than two dozen books on the mind and mindfulness, including Mindfulness To Go: How to Meditate While You’re On the Move! and Neural Path Therapy: How to Change Your Brain’s Response to Anger, Fear, Pain, and Desire. David travels the United States and the world helping organizations work more co-operatively, more creatively, and with less stress. His work has been featured on television and radio programs including Good Morning America and NPR and can be seen at www.davidharp.com.
