Wisdom from a Humble Jellyfish - And Other Self-Care Rituals from Nature
Author(s): Rani Shah
A delightfully illustrated guide to harnessing the rhythms of nature for self-care.
We could all learn a thing or two about living in balance from our friends in the plant and animal kingdom.
Take, for example, the jellyfish, one of the most energy-efficient animals in the world, moving through the ocean by contracting and relaxing, with frequent breaks in between.
Or the avocado tree, which can credit its existence to a mutually beneficial relationship with the pre-historic sloth, followed by some hungry, hungry humans and the advent of agriculture.
And then there is the oyster, producing a pearl as the result of an immune response when a grain of sand invades her system. What better example exists of how adversity can produce something beautiful?
We need look no farther than nature--from the habits of the porcupine to the sunflower to the wombat to the dragonfly--for small and simple things we can do to slow down, recharge, and living more thoughtfully, lovingly, and harmoniously.
Wisdom From a Humble Jellyfish . . . is at once charming and scientific, packed with essential wisdom and practical tips worth borrowing from our plant and animal friends for life-changing self-care.
