Connect with Nature & Re-Wild Yourself
Nature is a powerful, spiritual source. 

As humans, we enjoy being lost (or perhaps found) in wildness and the grandness of nature.

Julianne Skai Arbor, aka TreeGirl, is a photographer, certified arborist, conservation educator and forest ecotherapist.

In her new book, TreeGirl: Intimate Encounters with Wild Nature, she invites her readers into intimate contact with 50 magnificent tree species from her adventures in 13 countries on four continents.

Using a remote-control timer and a tripod, she has photographed herself and others in sensual connection with the trees of the world.

Listen in as Julianne joins Andrea and Lisa to share more about her adventures with trees, as well as why it's important to reconnect with nature.
