Yancy Lael joins us to speak about the mindful way to observe owls.
Outside in the woods, I feel most strongly a connection with the environment. Whether sitting or walking, the experience of being outdoors in nature dismantles the illusion of separation, and for a time, I belong. My dad taught me and my brothers that when we would go looking for deer, never hunting for anything but the magical joy of seeing them, and especially when we watched birds. I share a particular moment from my childhood in our conversation with today’s guest.
