As you set out on a magical journey that bridges worlds both within and without, you are invited to contemplate the nourishing wisdom embodied in these images. The profound beauty of the natural world and all that it represents—the cycles of life, rebirth and renewal, the mystical power of plants and animals. This is the first in a series of coloring books celebrating nature and it's mysteries.
These ageless icons and emblems of spiritual experience embody our innermost longings, our dreams and visions, and our connection to that which is greater than ourselves. This is the second book in the Coloring books for the Soul series, published by HarperElixir.
