“Most people are far removed from a deep connection with nature, because they have few opportunities to be in nature on a regular basis. Many people today often feel isolated and alone, but if we can connect with nature, it is like greeting a good friend, a valued partner whose very presence nourishes you.” –Tarthang Tulku, Love of Beauty
