For the last 26 years, tracker and author Jon Young has been mentoring folks in the nearly lost art of understanding bird and animal language, connecting people with Nature to inspire global and personal regeneration. Just as science is beginning to see the credibility in this ancient skill, Jon has been leading communities world-wide to get these skills back through lectures, workshops, media—but mostly through training and mentoring, based on a lifetime of personal experience combined with the input and guidance of cultural specialists from around the world. His newest book is “What the Robin Knows”.
Jon speaks with Joanna about: a childhood spent outside in nature; ecstatic experiences with nature; a vital, modern sense of wildness; attuned to the spiritual mystery in nature; innate meditation; the ancient gift of gratitude.
