Naked in Eden is based on Robin Easton’s life in the ancient Daintree Rainforest of Queensland, Australia. It is the story of a young woman who at the age of twenty-five is dangerously disconnected from life. She walks away from society, leaves the United States, and goes to live with her Aussie husband in the remote Daintree Rainforest of Queensland Australia. Her world was so completely impacted by the ancient rainforest that she was inspired to write Naked in Eden, a true story filled with adventure, animals, and plants.
Living among poisonous snakes, stinging trees, and huge spiders, Easton quickly realized that she had become part of the food chain. If she wanted to stay alive, she had to face her fears and be as acutely aware as the rest of life in the forest. In Naked in Eden, Easton explains that for her, Nature was both teacher and healer.
She says, “In the forest I felt raw and exposed…I couldn’t hide from myself in the same way I’d been able to in the outside world.” She explains that the more we participate with Nature on its own terms, the more we learn and understand its language, the more likely we can move towards the deeper levels of healing, peace, love, balance, and respect.
Naked in Eden raises the following questions.
– Why is the human connection with Nature often so healing?
– Some believe that Nature offers solutions to human problems, and that we just need to learn how to listen and apply. How can people take ownership for improving their health, living conditions and personal fulfillment using materials and lessons found in Nature?
– If we believe that only certain places are sacred — as long as we have a few national parks, wildlife refuges and zoos — will that be enough?
