Women everywhere are searching for answers to better support their wellbeing and find balance in their lives. But what if there were a solution? One that improves our physical and mental health while also strengthening our relationships, our sense of community and our purpose. Women’s health naturopath Emma Drady has assembled the communal wisdom of women around the world to unearth the missing piece of the puzzle: our connection with nature.

From nature drawing and finding a sit spot, to cold-water immersion and plant meditation – tried and tested by the diverse range of women featured here – help boost happiness, calm the nervous system and reduce stress. By connecting more with nature, you will connect with yourself.
