Discover the powerful healing connection between humans and birds!
For licensed therapist, Tammah Watts, it all began with a flutter of yellow feathers flitting through the trees, casting beams of sunshine and promise that burst through her kitchen window. This was her sign to look up. She would never predict that the little yellow bird would put her on the path to healing by fostering a powerful connection with birds and the experience of birding. She managed to heal her life and find self-acceptance through powerful connections with birds and nature. Discover how, through Tammah's new book, Keep Looking Up: Your Guide to the Powerful Healing of Birdwatching, you too can find peace, self-love, and contentment with our feathered friends.
