Our connections to ourselves, to each other, and especially to nature, have been severed and suppressed by modern life. We’re isolated from each other and from Nature, and as a result, our mental health suffers, our physical health declines, and we leave a wake of destruction in our path as we lumber through life.
Now, Jon Young presents a solution—a way to restore the connections that are so vital to your own health as well as to the future health of the planet where we live.
This solution is built on your personal connection to nature. It starts with a simple reboot of your personal operating system. It starts with “seeing through native eyes.”
Native cultures like the Naro Bushmen of the Kalahari have maintained their connections, and as a result, have much to teach us as we are rediscovering deep connections and relationships to nature and each other.
15 years ago, Jon recorded the original Seeing Through Native Eyes: Understanding the Language of Nature, and it was a wonderful tool that has been used by thousands. But looking back, the original version was a journey of content. It focused on the “hard skills” of primitive technology—survival techniques, tracking, plant use, and identification. These are important, but the nature connection that developed through this process was almost accidental, and often took a long time to happen.
Nature Connection For The Rest Of Us
Instead of being a journey of content, the new Seeing Through Native Eyes: A Journey of Connection is a journey of conduct. It focuses on the “soft skills” of connection, empathy, sharing, listening, quiet mind, and other elements that generate a deep, powerful nature connection quickly and predictably.
This revised program balances the need for physical skills with the need for connection and conduct—it keeps the best of the original program, but reflects the latest research on what actually creates and maintains cultural connections of all types. In addition, there is more wisdom from native elders about the conduct and thinking processes that promote a deep nature connection.
