Forester Peter Wohlleben reveals the profound interactions humans can have with nature, exploring the language of the forest and the eroding boundary between flora and fauna.
Humans are deeply connected to the natural world. Whether we observe it or not, our blood pressure stabilises near trees, the colour green calms us, and the forest sharpens our senses.
Forester Peter Wohlleben helped millions of us embrace the power and majesty of the wooded world in his bestselling book The Hidden Life of Trees. Now, in this livestream event, he will share new scientific discoveries and cutting edge research to reveal a wondrous new cosmos where humans are part of nature, and conservation is not just about saving trees – but about saving ourselves, too.
Many of us fear we’ve lost our connection to nature – but Peter Wohlleben will show us that age-old ties linking humans to the forest remain alive and intact. We just have to know where to look.
Praise for The Heartbeat of Trees:
“As human beings, we’re desperate to feel that we’re not alone in the universe. And yet we are surrounded by an ongoing conversation that we can sense if, as Peter Wohlleben so movingly prescribes, we listen to the heartbeat of all life.” —Richard Louv, author of Our Wild Calling and Last Child in the Woods
“Astonishment after astonishment—that is the great gift of The Heartbeat of Trees. It is both a celebration of the wonders of trees, and a howl of outrage at how recklessly we profane them.” —Kathleen Dean Moore, author of Earth’s Wild Music
“As Peter Wohlleben reminds us in The Heartbeat of Trees, trees are the vocabulary of nature as forests are the brainbank of a living planet. This was the codex of the ancient world, and it must be the fine focus of our future.” —Dr. Diana Beresford-Kroeger, author of To Speak for the Trees and The Global Forest
“Peter Wohlleben knows the battle that lies before us: forging a closer relationship with nature before we destroy it. In The Heartbeat of Trees he takes us deep into the global forest to show us how.”—Jim Robbins, author of The Man Who Planted Trees
