The Great Green Okayness: A Field guide to Seeing Your Uncommon Magnificence

The Great Green Okayness is a 160-page field guide to discovering the beautiful wildlife within, infused with a dollap of nourishing honey and delectable color. Wise author and artist Rachel Awes, a psychologist of twenty years, created these works of the magnificent human heart from her reflections following client sessions. Each passage and corresponding artwork speak to the soul like a potent, powerful reduction of boiled-down truth and goodness that every one of us needs daily, a homecoming gift to our humanity. Open to any page and find the passage that you need now. From the African plain to the great cosmos, Awes takes her readers on a journey to discover the beauty around, within, and always.

The Great Green Okayness: A Field guide to Seeing Your Uncommon Magnificence


"This is a book to be sipped and savored.
With an economy of words Rachel cuts straight to the deep--to the reassurances and revelations that release inner pressure valves, giving you room to breathe,
to smile, to let yourself gloriously be."

Jen Lee

Filmmaker and co-author of The 10 Letters Project.
