Cara speaking

Cara and Rotary

Thank you so much for joining us yesterday. You did such a beautiful job of taking us from the rise of Nazism to your personal relationship with Otto Frank. It was a very moving presentation filled with pathos, sadness and hope. Hopefully your message resonates with other audiences as it did with ours. Shalom!

Cara Wilson-Granat - Nature Teachers: Simple Lessons of Life Taught by the Most Unlikely Masters

Launch of Nature Teachers, July 2011

Is it possible for a Rock to be a Teacher? Or the ocean Waves? Or an Otter? A small Stone? A Pearl? A Spider? A River? Yes, it’s not only possible, but these are the Nature Teachers in this unusual book designed to rally you back to your higher self.

Nature Teachers helps you stay on your own path of life. It reminds you that life is a balance. That the answers you seek are right in front of you – forever available in the natural world. The lessons are surprisingly easy. Obvious.  Uncomplicated. Do-able. As simple as watching a rock being a rock.

Event Type: Book Launch for Nature Teachers
