Anyone who knows me is aware of my deep passion for nature and the value it brings to everyday life in so many ways. After reading “The Butterfly Lesson: 7 Ways to Regenerate and Discover a New Well-Being,” my appreciation for the outdoors deepened even more – which I didn’t think was possible!
The book, written by Daniel Lumera and Immaculata De Vivo, discusses a revolutionary method that connects cutting-edge science and ancient millenary philosophies to teach us how to face and overcome the significant changes we experience in life. It highlights how spending time in nature often leaves us feeling rejuvenated and that different societies and ways of life help cultivate a well-rounded and stable global perspective. We need to combine wisdom, traditions, and modern science to evolve and grow our new wings – until we ultimately transform into a beautiful new butterfly. The Butterfly Lesson outlines a fresh path to achieving daily well-being.
Lumera and De Vivo ask readers, “If you had to rebuild a new world, where would you start? If you could only carry one backpack with you, what are the essential things you would put inside?”
Through the text, I learned a new understanding of well-being related to the individual, relational and collective, and how to facilitate health, fulfillment, and rebirth. Although I already follow many of the techniques mentioned throughout the book, like eating nutritiously, spending time outdoors whenever I can, and practicing meditation, it taught me strategies to act more empathetically and be a kind leader with respect for the environment. I enjoyed this interesting book and recommend it to those who want to discover an exciting and innovative process for bettering their life with a mix of spirituality and science.
