Radical yet poetic reflections that awaken our hearts to our essential Earth-connected nature and illuminate a hopeful path toward the regeneration of our planet and the renewal of humanity.
This inspiring, poetic book immerses the reader in an optimistic path toward finding our true place in the natural world. Combining essay, memoir, meditational exercises, and beautiful color photos, the author shows how the land and the human heart are, and have always been, completely interconnected. Going well beyond modern religious, political and economic ideas, these reflections draw the reader into the intertwining realities of the Green World of nature and the Green Heart of humanity. They describe and celebrate ways to find kinship with one another and with the entire more-than-human world, both material and spiritual. Green Hearts in a Green World explores subjects ranging from sacred ceremony to social and ecological justice; from becoming more "woke" to overcoming trauma; from life-affirming, ancestral beliefs and actions to the human-centered cruelty of the modern world. Every essay compassionately invites us to know ourselves as essentially heart- and earth-centered people, and to return to our deep, authentic selves. This book affirms again and again the generous reality of nature's Green World of which we are a part, and whose inhabitants and powers irresistibly reflect and inform who we truly are.
