An inspiring meditation on the intersection of science, nature, and spirit that shows readers how to deepen their connection to the natural world.

Science. Nature. Spirit. They do not, need not, and should not overlap completely. But at that center where they do intersect? When we stand in that singular, curving triangle looking upon our troubled, beloved earth? At that crossroads there is intelligence, and sacredness, and wildness, and grace. There is clear-sighted hope in a time of despair. There is resistance. There is joy.

In this beautiful, thoughtful, and inspiring book, ecophilosopher, naturalist, and award-winning author Lyand Lynn Haupt offers serious invitation to ecological consciousness and action - a swift and beautiful manual inspiring readers to stand in a new way for the natural world. With Haupt's own changing and growing perceptions as a life-long student of nature as a through-line, FROG CHURCH offers an antidote to the plagues of modern life based in science, spirituality, and nature.

In this mystifying time of climate upheaval that affects the earth so dramatically, people are afraid and uncertain of where to turn, where to direct their inborn love of nature. FROG CHURCH delivers much-needed solace while inspiring readers to engage with the wild earth in new ways. The intertwining of science, nature, and spirit shows readers how to get grounded and move forward on our beloved, imperiled world.

Reviews for Rooted: Life at the Crossroads of Science, Nature, and Spirit

An elegant tapestry of poetry and science, of personal narrative and communal prophesy, this beautifully written book is drenched in wonder. It is a celebration of interconnectedness and belonging, a wild sacrament, a love song to life. --Mirabai Starr, author of Caravan of No Despair and Wild Mercy With her deep intuition and expansive attention as our guides, Lyanda Haupt's gorgeous words create a path to the place where science and spirit meet. It's a barefoot path that wanders through solitudes and into community with frogs, moose, orca, and our own wildness. --Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass Bold, lucid, lyrical, wise. In Rooted, Lyanda Lynn Haupt re-imagines and rediscovers connectedness, exploring our relationships to nature through the rhythms of daily life. A timely, and though-provoking read. --Thor Hanson, author of Buzz and The Triumph of Seeds Rooted is luminous and living proof of its own central premise: that all things are connected, and that activism and creativity can be a powerful combination. Part philosophical and personal exploration, part environmental manifesto, written with a gloriously poetic sensibility, Rooted feels like a literary love child of Rachel Carson and Mary Oliver. Find yourself a quiet place, preferably under a tree, and let Lyanda Lynn Haupt teach you how to embrace the tangled empathy of living not as a dominant species, but as one of many. --Erica Bauermeister, New York Times bestselling author of The Scent Keeper and House Lessons An extraordinary guide to wonder and belonging. Shattering dualities--science/spirit, dark/light, human/nature--Haupt leads us into the delicious presence of the living Earth. In a time of isolation and fragmentation, her many insights are beautiful and much-needed invitations to wholeness and connection. --David Haskell, author of The Forest Unseen and The Songs of Trees A masterful melding of the mystical and the material. A great read. --Bernd Heinrich, author of White Feathers and Racing the Clock
