In response to the feelings of imbalance and disconnection felt by so many in modern society, From the Depths of Creation: A Nature-Based Path to Healing by Liz Beachy Gómez invites us to rekindle our relationship with the natural world for inner healing, deep connection, and self-acceptance.

The book presents a Brazilian elemental framework for understanding nature’s wisdom and guidance, along with practical exercises and healing rituals to be done at the river, by the fire, in ocean waves, near the forest, or even on the wind.

“Despite the many pressures of colonialism and cultural amnesia, Earth-loving peoples around the world continue to live from a deep knowing that we are made of the elements, the ancestors, the land, and the mysteries. This offering by Liz Gómez makes a valuable contribution to this essential remembering by drawing on traditional Yoruba and Afro-Brazilian wisdoms as well as her own rich life experience and training. Highly recommended!”

“This book profoundly and joyfully invites the reader on a journey to understand the language of nature and build your own intimate relationship with the natural world.

From the Depths of Creation offers techniques for becoming more attentive to the elements of earth, air, fire, and water we encounter every day. With clear guidance and depth of experience, Liz Gómez shows how elemental forces can be allies in reconnecting the “outer” worlds we share with the “inner” healing and wisdom we may seek.”
