I do believe in an everyday sort of magic -- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we're alone.Charles de Lint

Reviews of “Walking Awake: The Face in Nature”

Walking Awake is truly like a walk through a world that is beautiful and surprising. And yet it is the same world we all live in. But Denise Crawn's mystical eye found the places where that world looks back at us, and she has captured them in remarkable photographs. The many quotes from people who have lived in our world throughout the centuries remind us that there is a long, rich tradition of finding spirit and personality in the natural world. Denise Crawn is a valuable guide. Walk with her.
~ Tom Cowan, Author/Shamanic Practitioner and Teacher 

Walking Awake became a part of my daily morning meditation and prayer. I felt each picture and quote drew me to nature's heartbeat. I am reminded when I reflect on the pictures and words in this book of how deeply connected our humanity is with nature. I notice nature's faces now as I go about my outdoor activities or are they getting my attention? Either way, Denise has made conscious the ever ongoing dialogue between myself and God's beautiful Earth. This book is a blessing to read and reflect upon daily. Thanks Denise for bringing such beauty into my heart every time I look at nature through your lens in this book. Blessings are cover to cover!

Denise truly is the Queen of the Fairies as she takes your hand and guides you through the world as seen through her eyes. She has an uncanny eye, capturing things which escape us mere mortals. This book is a blessing, and will open your heart to a deeper appreciation of nature.
~ Mark Lichty
 

Denise Crawn has a beautiful gift. She can see and live in the worlds of Nature and Spirituality and her photographs reflect her inner eye which she has honed to a fine point. Her photos grab you. The quotations accompanying the beautifully laid out images enhance the wisdom she imparts to the reader.
Having met the author for the first time recently, I can see in her a world of vast beauty. I hope she writes more books with her stunning eye for the soul of God in Nature.
This book would make a lovely gift for any loved one…
~ Nancy R. Wilson

 
This book is a must have for ALL nature lovers, ALL life lovers, and anyone who is a spiritual seeker. Actually, everyone should own a copy of this book! It is filled with beautiful, awe-inspiring photographs and life affirming quotes. In a world that has become more and more insulated, this book gently and tenderly reminds us of our interconnectedness with one another, with nature, with the Divine. Denise Crawn's Walking Awake: The Faces in Nature is a real joy and a true treasure!

About the Author/Founder of Walking Awake

 
IMG 5069Denise Crawn: Owner of Walking Awake, author of "Walking Awake: The Faces in Nature", and the NEWLY RELEASED! "Walking Awake on the Isle of Iona, Scotland: An Inspirational Card Deck and Book Set".   

Denise has had a deep facination of all things Celtic since an early age and enjoys spending as much time as possible wandering in nature and exploring sacred sites. Her deep-rooted relationship with the natural world began as a child when she would spend extended periods in the great outdoors with her father and siblings. Feeling most at home outside, wandering and foraging, Denise has a keen eye for tracking and a gift for spotting, interpreting and sharing Nature's hidden messages.

As an ordained Interfaith Minister (through One Spirit Interfaith Learning Alliance, NYC), she occasionally performs the traditional min307267809 640461977513870 7811359825714615588 nisterial rites of passages such as weddings, blessings, and memorials. With experience in the performing arts, hospitality and Celtic Shamanism combined with a love of myth, history, poetry and music, her ministry has evolved to focus mostly on guiding and mentoring others on their individual journey to become more aware, awake and fully present to their innate connection with Nature through her workshops, pilgrimages, private mentoring, and writing. As a facilitator, Denise has been leading Celtic and Nature focused workshops since 2005 and group pilgrimages to the Isle of Iona since 2009. 

IMG 4963Once upon a time (not so long ago) Denise encountered a Circle of Standing Stones at Columcille Megalith Park in her former home state of Pennsylvania which called her to visit the small Hebridean Island of Iona, Scotland. Ten years later, on one of her many returns to Iona she met her husband, Nick Prance on a ferry and so began their “Ferry Tale” come true. Denise and Nick now reside in Scotland together and enjoy leading and co-leading workshops on both sides of the pond, pilgrimages to Iona and other sacred sites throughout the U.K.

Walking Awake will come to YOU!...
