Undertake a sacred passage into the temple of nature, guided by meditation master and vision quest leader John P Milton. Since the 1940's, this pioneering spiritual teacher has led over 10,000 vision quests into the wilds of Colorado, the Himalayas, Bali, the Arctic, Mexico, and other sacred sites around the world. Now this pathfinder guides readers back to the wilderness within themselves, to discover how they are connected with the vast and sacred mystery of nature. Highlights include: why meditation in nature is unequaled in its power to transform lives, a full-body meditation for the deepest relaxation of one's life, how nature's healing energy can renew the body, how to clear and open blocked internal pathways to open them to earth's energy, and a 10-minute practice to restore one's internal balance with the natural world.
