Can we successfully mix a deep ecological and spiritually heart-based approach to life with practical and rational approaches grounded in sound science? Yes! This is the conclusion that this book presents.
Growing numbers of people are realising that we cannot continue in our present blind way trying to solve the burgeoning environmental problems and growing consequences of human selfishness by employing yesterday's thinking and ways of relating. GreenSpirit - Path to a New Consciousness provides a possible blueprint, cogently offering an holistic, scientific, earth-centred approach and I believe successfully arguing that a sustainable future relies on You, Me and Us Together walking a path to a new consciousness.
If you are at all curous about green sprituality or, are already involved in the green movement but feeling rather jaded and dispirited at the current lack of progress, this is the book for you. Read and enjoy and maybe join GreenSpirit as a growing group of people who think and act differently.
If you are wondering what the term ‘GreenSpirit’ means or implies, you will find that the book clearly tells you. It also succinctly highlights how various areas of spirituality, religion and science deeply link with it, and will encourage you to ask profound questions about your interrelated connection to the Earth, the responsibilities this reveals and how your life can be greatly enriched by the natural world.
Those looking for positive ways of turning our current situation around, will both welcome reading and embodying the tremendous wisdom that has been woven together in this book. It is without doubt one of the most comprehensive works on different areas of spirituality, belief and practice that interlink with eco-spiritual matters. Its editor, Marian Van Eyk McCain, has accomplished a superb task in bringing together a vast kaleidoscope of moving, straight talking articles, summaries of talks, and immensely practical essays, that encourage us to seek out common ground with other people and work towards healing divisions, dysfunctional patterns of behaviour and the harm we have done and are doing to Mother Earth – to jointly become caring co-creators with the natural world, instead of selfish destroyers.
What Marian Van Eyk McCain has so wonderfully achieved in this book, is a cohesive synthesis of essential strands, such as finding unity in diversity, education, creativity, inter-spirituality, eco-psychology and economics. There is something here for everyone; for no one person can know it all and the book greatly benefits by having different voices that directly and openly share their insights. There are heartfelt and important chapters that highlight much that needs to be seen as part of the whole. Some familiar names are here, such as Matthew Fox, Brian Swimme and Satish Kumar (who has written the Foreword), and various eco-spiritual prophets of our age, such as Thomas Berry and Arne Naess, are acknowledged, quoted and written about in various passages.
Marian Van Eyk McCain herself has also contributed various chapters and helpful introductions to the book’s four parts: (1) Understanding our World and our Place in it, (2) Spiritual Pathways, (3) Greening our Culture, and (4) Walking our Talk. Her final piece on Simplicity, Activism and the Fourfold Way, is an honest and touching piece of writing that delightfully brings the book to its close.
In all, ‘GreenSpirit, Path to a New Consciousness’, is a must read for our time, and an immensely important book to be treasured and reflected upon. At this crucial point in human development, the book shows how we can transform our relationship with the Earth, make important changes and how GreenSpirit wisdom can be integrated into our lives.
It is a book to read and study and also to keep to hand, to come back to for clarification and re-stimulation.
