Human beings are inseparable from the natural world, co-evolving with all of life. In order to thrive, we need to nourish this bond. In The Healing Code of Nature, biologist Clemens G. Arvay illuminates the miraculous ways that the human body interprets the living “code” of plants, animals, and our larger natural habitat for healing and sustenance. Here is a book as inspiring as it is fascinating, offering a new vision for the future of medicine and the way we relate to our environment.

One of Graham Greene’s characters famously said, “I suffer, therefore I am,” suggesting that pain is an inescapable, and perhaps incurable, part of the human condition. But must this be so? Ellen Macfarland argues otherwise in The Sacred Beyond Trauma. Through the use of mythology, stories from film and fiction, real-life examples, and her personal history, Macfarland shows that healing trauma is indeed possible, using rich resources near at hand, in nature. The book explores major symbols of healing nature that can provide an impetus for personal transformation. One of the case studies profiles Monty Roberts, a well-known horse trainer who overcame significant childhood abuse by working with horses and eventually fostering some forty children alongside his own biological family. The key, says Macfarland, is using these and other natural symbols such as yin yang to balance the tension between trauma and numinosity (sacredness, transcendence), resulting in the creation of a new way of being in the world. Understanding this and the book’s other nature-based symbols can turn the distressed mind into a fertile field of spiritual awareness, empowerment, and lifelong growth.

Did you know that you can find happiness and healing through nature? See, life can sometimes bring many challenges, but if we look around at the rivers flowing, the trees stretching their branches, the flowers blooming, the birds flying in the sky, and the mountains reaching their highest peaks, we can find that needed hope to overcome life's obstacles.The purpose of this book is to share with you my journey of happiness and healing, using photos while providing my perspective of the places I have visited. Most of the images, captured in nature here, are from locations in South Carolina. You may also spot some that were taken in neighboring North Carolina and Georgia. For some, you might say this is "right in your backyard". This project began as a hobby but turned into an adventure for me. It also became my means of learning what other people perceive from nature. Although I genuinely enjoy hiking for exercise, I am always excited by the prospect of discovering the natural, and sometimes hidden places provided in nature. This has been an activity that I have been able to share with my family and friends. Each journey has been fun, some I might even call thrilling, which everyone might enjoy.I hope that this book provides you with the healing and happiness to provide you "hope" to continue your life's journey.

The medieval view of the natural world can best be understood within its religious context. According to medieval thought, nature was a book in which God revealed himself and his message to the world. Plants and animals in particular were frequently given symbolic meanings or valued for their healing properties. Illustrated with works taken from three world-famous medieval manuscripts, The Wisdom of Nature focuses on thirty-five exquisitely executed sheets which depict a wide range of subjects. These include herbs and plants, animals and birds, nature and the seasons, meat and water, activities to stimulate the body or brain such as riding or conversing, and religious topics such as the Creation. In double-page spreads, this volume explains the origin of each manuscript illustration, looks into its symbolic meanings, listing the healing powers ascribed to it in the medieval world as well as medical properties still valued by modern science. An introductory essay delves into the essential characteristics of medieval thought. The illustrations are reproduced from the Viennese Tacuinum in the Austrian National Library in Vienna, a manuscript listing the positive and negative effects of foodstuffs on the human body; the Bern Physiologus from the Burgerbibliothek in Bern, which describes animals as sources of medicinal cures; and the Oxford Bestiary from the Bodleian Library in Oxford, a collection of animal stories of a religious or moralizing nature.
