Tamarack Song: Becoming Nature
Animals and plants are in constant communication with the world around them. To join the conversation, we need only to connect with our primal mind and recognize that we, too, are Nature. Once in this state, we can communicate with animals as effortlessly as talking with friends. The songs of birds and the calls of animals start to make sense. We begin to see the reasons for their actions and discover that we can feel what they feel. We can sense the hidden animals around us, then get close enough to look into their eyes and touch them.
In this guide to becoming one with Nature, Tamarack Song provides step-by-step instructions for reawakening the innate sensory and intuitive abilities that our hunter-gatherer ancestors relied upon–abilities imprinted in our DNA yet long forgotten. Through exercises and experiential stories, the author guides us to immerse ourselves in Nature at the deepest levels of perception, which allows us to sense the surrounding world and the living beings in it as extensions of our own awareness. He details how to open our minds and hearts to listen and communicate in the wordless language of wild animals and plants.
Tamarack Song was born and raised in east central Wisconsin, and spent his youth learning from the woods, fields, and swamps outside of the “civilized” boundaries of his hometown. Located in Three Lakes, WI, this school is aimed at bridging the path to the wisdom and lifeway skills of our Native ancestors, and has been featured in National Geographic and on such programs as MTV’s Real Life: I’m Living Off The Grid and CBC New’s Sunday – Real Survivor. Tamarack is the author of Journey to the Ancestral Self, Whispers of the Ancients, Song of Trusting the Heart, and numerous articles on Native cultures, skills, perspectives, and traditions.
