|About the Book|
Bowlsbeys tales of confronting her inner demons and her foibles of venturing into the outdoors without the succor of a man demystify the fears women commonly encounter when contemplating being alone in the outdoors and provide a metaphor for confronting the uncertainties of daily life. The wild spaces that she comes to intimately know and love transform her fears into an appreciation of the sanctity of the unknown and joyful anticipation of the mystery of not always knowing where her path is leading or what will be there when she arrives. Sacred Play: Lessons from Procreating with Nature opens a door to a different kind of outdoors than that typically experienced in the company of men. In this new outdoors, safety is found in intuition, women need not compete with or dominate their surroundings, and communion is possible with the flora and fauna that share the wild.
