The Healing Wisdom of Birds

"What is it to be man...oh,that we might learn...from the lilies and the birds...let us consider seriously the lilies and the birds as teachers...and imitate them."

 - Soren Kierkegaard (from The Lilies Of The Field And The Birds Of The Air, 1849

"I have been looking for a thorough book on the wisdom of birds, and after a long search, I finally came across a volume that fit my needs, and that I truly enjoyed. Mrs. Morrison created a friendly, thoughtful book, which dove deeper into the subject matter than most of the other books on the subject by including information on Goddesses with Bird symbolism, to detailed guides on how to connect to a specific bird. Written in a wonderfully warm tone, that did not read like a lecture, but more like a caring conversation, the Author created a book, to which I will return to often for reference."
