Rewilding in the Northern Forest: Cultivating Membership in the Forests of Home

In progress. This book, which I am writing in collaboration with Vermont Family Forests, is a guide to reconnecting with the forest community and interacting with the forest in ways that leave the forest community–including the people involved in those interactions–wilder and healthier.

Living the Loving Life: An Interpretive Guidebook for the Practices of Love, Loss, and Forgiveness (2012)

A departure from my usual subject matter, this 80-page guidebook was a collaboration with my father, Dr. Michael Murphy, who founded a beautiful and innovative hospice in 1978 and served as its medical director for 17 years. He leads transformational workshops based on his work, through the Love, Loss, and Forgiveness Project.
