Think Like a Tree is a book on how we can apply the wisdom of the natural world, to our own lives. We associate trees and woodlands with harmony, health and vitality. Yet so often, we struggle to experience these qualities in our own lives. What if we could harness the wisdom of the forest?
This book reveals the underlying principles of nature’s secrets of success. These natural principles evolved over billions of years – they are the rules and patterns that all living things have in common:
- Finding purpose
- Growth & success

- Developing positive relationships
- Leaving a lasting legacy
Drawing on woodland examples from around the globe, this book shares the amazing abilities of trees, their evolutionary success stories, and their ability to heal. Find real-life case studies that you can apply right now to your own life. Exercises for each principle allows readers to put into practice the wisdom shared by the living world, in this uniquely practical book. Whatever your circumstances, the natural principles from nature can be used for well-being, happiness, overcoming life challenges, staying motivated, relationship issues and being an active part of your community. And of course, learning how to live sustainably.
