AWAKENINGS IN THE WILD
Join Alaskan writer and award winning photographer Joseph Classen on an unforgettable adventure! Experience a captivating, eye-opening account of the vital role that nature plays in nourishing the human being. Through both image and word, from the rugged wilderness of Kodiak Island, Alaska, to the Ozark Mountains of Missouri, Awakenings in the Wild takes the reader deep into the heart of both the natural world and the human soul.
Since the most ancient of times, nature has been the traditional setting for the discovery of truth, wisdom, self, and God. It has forever been a dwelling in which one seeks healing, serenity, and the path of love. For countless generations the wilderness has been a universal university, where one receives an education like no other, where making positive choices become a matter of life and death, and where one comes to realize the interconnectedness of all creation with the Creator. The founders of the world’s religions, as well as great political leaders throughout the centuries, have all spent quality time immersed in the wilderness in order to develop a solid foundation of character and focus on their mission. As Classen proclaims, those same opportunities for personal growth, and spiritual awakening await those who venture far-off the beaten path today.
Awakenings in the Wild is a collection of insightful essays and stunning photography that will inspire a soul-searching journey of one’s own, as well as educate and entertain anyone who possesses an appreciation of our world's natural environment.
