Welcome to the website for the book Touching Nature by Kamal Advani.
Drawing upon the author’s understanding of life and living gained as part of his Karaté training over 25 years, Touching Nature is a series of contemplative poetry and associated commentary on Nature, its basic elements, and the various scapes it manifests as.
Each theme explores guidelines on living that Nature provides us with, if we are willing to listen, observe, and, most importantly, feel. To treat Nature as both a guide and a friend, and to invest in the relationship with Nature, directly — by contemplating its beauty — and indirectly, by applying its teachings.
To impress just how connected we are to Nature — a point often repeated, and often forgotten — in both obvious and less obvious ways.
