In celebration of going to press this month, here is the Table of Contents, and why the Gingko leaf.
"Natural Self Discovery is all about giving ourselves permission to "be" and love who we naturally are, with Nature as our teacher. When can allow ourselves some peace in Nature for a peace of Mind, we are ultimately led toward a more empowered, confident role in a society of chaos, to make more intelligent, peaceful decisions for ourselves, others, and our planet." P. Hoke

Why the Gingko Leaf?
“Ginkgo fossils over 270 million years old have been found. Charles Darwin considered the Gingko tree a ''living fossil.' This amazing tree was once considered extinct in the wild, but it continues to thrive today. I am ultimately fascinated with the smooth flow of the shape and veins of these beautiful leaves, as they are a mirror to me of how I would like life to flow. I also validate the Gingko tree as my solid evidence that nature knows and understands survival as love, and it is time for humans to start recognizing and tapping back into this superior knowledge from ancient wisdom and love, so we are able to create an escape hatch from the growing insanities of late.” ~ pH
