How do we tune in more fully, more consistently, to that which we already know?
- We need something to draw us inward. A place or a situation, an intuitive knowing. A captivating vista that silently tugs at the senses - at the soul. Tapping into her geographic and spiritual roots, the author gently, but precisely, draws out the wisdom of place.
Always Returning, an insightful and essential guide, imparts a powerful message of awareness, survival, and personal growth. The prairie landscape, like most far-reaching, compelling landscapes, invites contemplation and reflection. "We're always returning, coming back, coming round, as our perceptions ripen: as we gather the delicate strands of our lives time and time again." But seeing deeply into our lives begins within ...
Much more than current events, sensational headlines, controversy and conflict, and interminable, mostly distracting, news bulletins, on a spiritual plane, we are the open space of the prairies, the artistic stretch of silvery blues overhead. "Each page nudges us toward greater self-understanding... ." --Holly Weiss, Crestmont
Wisdom isn't a fancy paradigm that few will ever find. Rather, it's found within when we explore the deeper aspects of life. Always Returning makes this critical connection with compassion, hope, and empathy.
This book is the 15th anniversary edition of Where the Heart Resides: Timeless Wisdom of the American Prairie.

About the Author
Hickman is also a spiritual thinker.
As she wrote in her 2014 nonfiction release, Always Returning: The Wisdom of Place (the second edition of Hickman's first book) ... "Insights we call wisdom must be learned repeatedly: each time, at a deeper, more profound, level."
Hickman's memoir, THE SILENCE OF MORNING (Capturing Morning Press, 2015), speaks to loss and grief, but to other societal issues as well. She examines our contemporary culture, its addictive tendencies, and the troubling implications that follow. The spiritual component is a major theme in the book, as well. The author notes that she will always be looking for the deeper story and the universal message to derive a better understanding of the human condition: a path with less suffering, greater awareness.

The Wisdom of Place is a book you don't read hurriedly. It demands that you pause, look out and see where you are in this world. It demands that you pause to explore inside and consider who you are in this world. And most importantly it guides you to connect what you discover in those reflective moments. It encourages you to trust to that innate wisdom so often obscured by busy lives and modern noise you’re surrounded by. This is book I’ll return to, to read places I’ve marked. So it will be on my desk or at my bedside for a while.
