In todays world, its often too easy to forget about the world outside the window. People struggle daily with stressful jobs, trapped under fluorescent lighting, staring at glowing screens, or surrounded by concrete when they could be outdoors, acknowledging the gifts of natural world. In the face of its absence, we are finally beginning to understand that our connection with nature—plants, trees, animals, and the energy of the earth itself—is more than a luxury; it is a necessary and vital part of our existence. In Partnering with Nature, Catriona MacGregor weaves together historical, spiritual, and scientific examples to emphasize the importance of creating a vital relationship with our natural surroundings. Our separation from nature leads to several devastating effects, whether through stress, feeling a lack of purpose, or the heedless destruction of our environment. Through her exploration of the energies that link humans, animals, and the natural world, she shows how we can learn from nature as we develop our spirituality and ourselves. Through diverse approaches, Catriona offers the reader a solid understanding of why a connection with the Earth is vital to our existence, and how a revival of that connection opens doors to a myriad of benefits in our environment and in our health, our daily lives, and our happiness.
Catriona MacGregor is an attorney, environmental activist, corporate consultant, and spiritual life coach.

She lives in Fairfax, California.
"I have been deeply impressed by Catriona MacGregor for many years. Her striking kinship with the animal world and her vision of the natural world are compelling and apparent when you are in her presence. Many people carefully copy native traditions, hoping for a shamanic experience. Catriona MacGregor is a shaman.
"Catriona's book is a gentle yet somehow startling book, a work of unsuspected beauty, and generously far-ranging in its scope, considering how much it encompasses. It is written with the clarity of one who is consciously living in the web of life and empowered by a unique and enduring vision."
—Jim Gilkeson, author of A Pilgrim in Your Body and Energy Healing
—Denise Linn, international speaker and bestselling author of Sacred Space
"From the first paragraph, this masterpiece of a book weaves a magical spell. Into that spell it mixes baby robins, alpha brain waves, shamanic journeys, celtic myths, and water bears into a glorious tapestry of wholeness. And then it weaves you, the reader, into that spell, showing how you can gain access to the spiritual unity behind it all. Warm as a tropical sunset, fresh as a woodland glade, Catriona MacGregor's inviting prose lifts the veil between the material and spiritual worlds—and transports you to the heart of being found in nature.
"As you read these compelling stories, you will feel all your cells tingle with the recognition that you are made of the stuff of the universe, and find inspiration and renewal in the natural world around you, wherever you live. I recommend this book highly."
—Dawson Church, PhD, author of The Genie in Your Genes
—Amy Racina, author of Angels in the Wilderness
"Partnering with Nature studies show that when people come into contact with Nature, even with a simple potted plant, they become kinder, more generous, and more community minded than when they focus on artificial human-made surroundings. Catriona MacGregor gives us a mystical and practical manual for our times to reconnect with Natures sacred healing power for our own benefit and that of all life on Earth."
—Penelope Smith, author of Animal Talk, When Animals Speak, and Animals in Spirit
