Sky Above, Earth Below: Spiritual Practice in Nature
A Complete Course on Spiritual Practice in Nature and the path to Integrity, Harmony and Enlightenment with Nature, Soul and Universal Spirit
As a way of sharing the essence of the Sacred Passage/Nature Quest Awareness Trainings, The Way of Nature Productions has developed an extensive series of books, teaching videos, DVDs and audio programs. The success and appeal of John P Milton's 1999 Sacred Passage 9 hour recording series of "Sky Above, Earth Below" was expanded further in 2005 with our publication of the popular three DVD set of John's Qigong practices entitled: "Qigong for Long Life." All four products were produced by Sounds True together with Way of Nature Productions, greatly expanding our offerings to the Way of Nature Community and to the public. Based on the Sky Above, Earth Below Audio Teachings, John wrote and published a comprehensive version of his Awareness Training Teachings in the 2006 book "Sky Above, Earth Below: Spiritual Practice in Nature." For those doing a Sacred Passage or a Nature Quest, we highly recommend bringing both the book, and the sound recordings on an MP3 player, for deepening the Awareness Training and the solo immersion in the wild. We also have two new DVD projects currently in search of sponsors. They both feature the Sacred Passage/Nature Quest Awareness Training's Twelve Principles and the path to liberation through cultivating deep communion of Inner and Outer Nature.
In addition to providing deep support for members of The Way of Nature Fellowship, all these products provide excellent outreach to those unfamiliar with our work. They also establish a valuable historical record of these timely and timeless teachings.

On Sky Above, Earth Below, you will undertake a sacred passage into the temple of nature, guided by meditation master and vision quest leader John P. Milton.

Recorded live in the remote wilderness of Arizona's Chiricahua mountains, Sky Above, Earth Below gathers together dozens of rare meditations and other practices into a six-stage curriculum you can practice and explore anywhere in the natural world. Step by step, Milton teaches you authentic methods for communion in the wild, flowing with the life there, and enjoying every moment without effort. Even if nature now seems unfamiliar to you, here is a way to merge with the perfection in every tree, mountain, lake, and flower.
