Episode Info: “You have certain mentors that are human beings. Why keep it to one species? You can learn things you can never learn from any human from talking to a tree or a mushroom or a plant.” Drum roll please because this episode is a Stay Grounded first! That’s because it’s the very first time I’ve brought an old guest back into the interview chair. You may remember Logan ‘strongman’ Christopher from episode 35 when he revealed how an experience in the Amazon changed his life.  Well, things have moved on since then. Logan has jumped much deeper into his connection with nature. In fact, he now describes himself as an emissary of nature - someone who communicates deeply with the wildlife, plants, and landscapes around him. At the surface level, this may sound a bit crazy, but hear Logan speak and I guarantee you’ll never look at nature through the same lens again. This episode is a beautiful opportunity to expand your definition of self. It’s a chance to explore how you can open up different parts of your being and it’s a moment to discover how working with nature leaves you feeling whole. It’s a doozy :-) “Churches are often built with this awe-inspiring look to them that can help us reach that transcendental state. Nature is much the same. A grove of trees is in some ways very similar to a church.” In this beautiful conversation, Logan shares what’s possible when we reconnect with nature. Here in the West we’re very brain-centric. We see thinking as the pinnacle of the human experience and it’s cut us off from nature. But at what cost? Logan believes strengthening our relationship with nature can positively affect us in many profound ways. It can lower stress levels, help us think more creatively, and boost our health and wellbeing - to name just a dew benefits. In this episode we discuss why:You need to slow down to speed up [yes, it feels counter-intuitive]Immersing in the complexity of nature allows us to see past our linear human experienceTransforming our relationship with food can transform our health and diet We’ve totally underestimated the heart and what its real function isTalking with nature allows you to download insights and understanding about life And soooooo much more. Logan believes if we only look to learn from other humans, we’re limiting our ability to understand the world. Nature is a powerful teacher [if we let it] and in this episode you’ll discover how and why. So take some time to soak up Logan’s wisdom. He’ll leave you thinking in a whole new direction. “Being able to look at nature in awe I think is a powerful thing and something that, if people did it more often, it would serve them well.” How to contact Check out Logan’s new book, Powered By Nature at https://poweredbynaturebook.com.
