FEEL­ING YOUR WAY

How to de­velop nat­u­ral in­tu­ition in Wild Signs And Star Paths by Tris­tan Goo­ley*

The Simple Things - - FRESH | JUNE THINGS -

Once upon a time, the shape of a tree glimpsed on a hori­zon could tell you which way was south. Nowa­days, trees grow in ex­actly the same way, but we have lost the knack of us­ing them as a com­pass point. In his lat­est book, Tris­tan Goo­ley, the Nat­u­ral Nav­i­ga­tor, con­tin­ues his mis­sion to change all that with his keen knowl­edge of the out­doors and his un­fet­tered en­thu­si­asm for shar­ing that wis­dom. With a bit of prac­tice, a lot of ob­ser­va­tion, and the use of a col­lec­tion of ‘keys’, we can re­store that elu­sive ‘sixth sense’ and re-learn to sense di­rec­tion from stars and plants, forecast weather from wood­land sounds, and pre­dict the next ac­tion of an an­i­mal from its body lan­guage.
