Présentation de l'éditeur

Our present ecological crisis is the greatest man-made disaster this planet has ever faced—its accelerating climate change, species depletion, pollution and acidification of the oceans. A central but rarely addressed aspect of this crisis is our forgetfulness of the sacred nature of creation, and how this affects our relationship to the environment. There is a pressing need to articulate a spiritual response to this ecological crisis. This is vital and necessary if we are to help bring the world as a living whole back into balance.

Biographie de l'auteur

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee was born in London in the year 1953. He began following the Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Sufi path at the age of 19, after meeting Irina Tweedie, author of Daughter of Fire: A Diary of a Spiritual Training with a Sufi Master. He became Irina Tweedie's successor and a teacher in the Naqshbandiyya Sufi Order. In 1991 he moved to Northern California and founded The Golden Sufi Center to help make available the teachings of this Sufi Lineage (see www.goldensufi.org). Author of several books, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee has lectured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe on Sufism, mysticism, Jungian psychology and dreamwork. He has also specialized in the area of dreamwork, integrating the ancient Sufi approach to dreams with the insights of Jungian Psychology. Since 2000 the focus of his writing and teaching has been on spiritual responsibility in our present time of transition, and an awakening global consciousness of oneness. More recently he has written about the feminine, the world soul, the Anima Mundi, and the emerging field of spiritual ecology (see www.workingwithoneness.org). He has also hosted a number of Sufi conferences bringing together different Sufi orders in North America (see www.suficonference.org).

HASH(0x9106fd20) étoiles sur 5 A book to launch a million urgently needed discussions. 24 septembre 2013
Par Guttersnipe Das - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you arrive suddenly in a foreign city, a city where you do not know the landmarks and do not speak the language, you may find yourself urgently in need a guide. In the same way, this book is vitally necessary, now that we find ourselves in a changed and unfamiliar world. If we wish to survive as a civilization, we need to find new paths - and we need to find them quickly. You would do well to call in sick to work - and stay home to read this.

A few of the texts here I'd found previously, including one that blew open my mind when I read it aged 19: Joanna Macy's "Greening of the Self". It is even more amazing than I remember. Thich Nhat Hanh is here as well and just because he's a beloved Zen master who knows the right way to eat an orange doesn't mean he pulls his punches: "In my mind I see a group of chickens in a cage disputing over a few seeds of grain, unaware that in a few hours they will all be killed." He knows we may not make it. Even acknowledging we may not survive, there is a way forward, a way to take action and not be paralyzed by helplessness.

Of the thinkers I discovered for the first time while reading this book, the most helpful and inspiring was Sister Miriam MacGillis. The interview here with Sister Miriam, a contemplative inspired by Thomas Berry, was stunning - perhaps the most profound example of skillful means united with a vast perspective that I have ever come across. Her understanding is so vast - and she brings it to bear on the farm that is in her stewardship. I read it three times in a row. It is magnificent.

I loved, too, Susan Murphy's essay, "The Koan of the Earth". Susan Murphy is a Zen teacher in Australia and her gaze is stark and clear. When the situation is as serious as this one, it is best to have a physician who does not mince words. In order to survive, we will need vast compassion, and it is compassion like this, tough as nails. (After reading this essay, I wanted very much to read `Minding the Earth, Mending the World', Murphy's book on this subject, but it appears to be unavailable. Somebody please bring this book back to print!)

I was particularly grateful to Geneen Marie Haugen and the essay "Imagining Earth". Haugen writes about how the imagination can be used to reacquaint ourselves with the sacred in the land and how this practice, which involves some "make-believe", might turn out to be essential for our survival.

Haugen helped me a lot to understand my own experience. As a boy in New Hampshire, I experienced my family's farm as a place vastly alive and full of spirits. Certain places had certain powers; there was even an area I believed to be "the heart of the farm". I grew up, thought myself foolish, and it was years before I was able recognize how correct I'd been as a child! This essay is a beautiful guide to this practice. She helped me understand, too, why I find the unfortunate fate of my family's farm (and life in Tokyo) so wrenching. Haugen writes, "A practice of attending an animate world may have a cumulative effect of rearranging our own consciousness in a way that we cannot later withdraw from without pain"(166). Yes, indeed.

Anthologies like this one aim to reach many people by providing many styles and approaches. I admit there were a few essays here that seemed to me "keynote addresses" - general statements aimed at an audience already convinced. I hope that this book will serve as a sort of general introduction for a series of books on this subject.

Hopefully these essays will serve to fuel discussion. Admittedly, I did not agree with all the approaches found here. A few, like the essay by Sandra Ingerman, seemed to be examples of cheesy, old-style New Age thinking that is too busy being airy and optimistic to actually be useful. This sort of thing was good enough for 1987 (when "The Aquarian Conspiracy" was going to save us all) but - we're going to need to think a lot harder now.

In a book of strong essays, there was one essay that dismayed and even offended me: Satish Kumar's "3 Dimensions of Ecology: Soil, Soul, Society." As a keen student of Hinduism and Buddhism, I think the ecological perspectives of these traditions are both fascinating and urgently necessary. This essay, however, is an embarrassing concoction of platitudes, generalities and sentimentality. This is not 1893, Mr. Kumar is not Swami Vivekananda, and we do not need dumbed-down, platitude-ridden, soft-serve presentations of Hinduism anymore. Pardon me for being rude, but I think this is an argument worth having!

Kumar translates yagna, tapas and dana as soil, soul and society. I'm sorry, but that's not what those words mean. If he wishes to give a creative translation or reinterpretation, that's great, but he should give the traditional meanings and the reasons for his reinterpretation - not just assume that we are ignorant and cannot handle the actual definitions of words. It is no longer necessary to gloss over what is complicated in these faiths -- we can handle the complexity of the real tradition. For a brilliant discussion of how Hindus see the divine as manifest in the land around them, please read Diana Eck's marvelous book India: A Sacred Geography, a book that is as necessary to ecologists as it is to students of religion.

I am grateful to this wonderful collection of essays for giving me so much to investigate and ponder - as well as a few things to argue about! May there be more books like this one - and fast! May the conversation continue deep into the night.

HASH(0x9106ff6c) étoiles sur 5 Really beautiful book, with so much in it we need to hear right now! 5 septembre 2013
Par Charlotte A. Bruce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Chief Oren Lyons in chapter 1 says, "As we move each day closer to a point of no return, we lose that day's option.And there will come a point where we won't have an option."

He goes on to say that his people were told in prophecy that there would be two very important systems to warn of a degradation of the earth. One would be the acceleration of the winds. "When you see that the accelerations of the winds are growing, then you are in dangerous times." Chief Lyons says the second warning would come in seeing how people don't care for the children. Both these signs are now present on the earth. Various kinds of horrible exploitation of children are taking place and society doesn't do anything about it.

And this is only Chapter 1! Each chapter, each author has a unique viewpoint to offer, yet all agree that the answers will not come from the thinking that has created them and thereby desecrated the earth. We can no longer afford to treat it as an object, manipulate and exploit it.

Thich Nhat Hanh says, "...we act as if our daily lives have nothing to do with the condition of the world. We are like sleepwalkers, not knowing what we are doing ... Whether we can wake up or not depends on whether we can walk mindfully on our Mother Earth. The future of all life, including our own, depends on our mindful steps."

Let's hope we can. Chief Lyons is right. Options are running low.

HASH(0x9106ff30) étoiles sur 5 Healing Words 8 septembre 2013
Par amy wheeler - Publié sur Amazon.com

I highly recommend this collection of essays from some of our most impassioned advocates for the earth. I sat in front of my fireplace and read one of these pieces each day, and wept, and was inspired, by their deep thinking on what's wrong with our relationship to our mothership, and each other, and ourselves...and what's possible moving forward. The essays are simultaneously hard-hitting, and hopeful. Recommended reading for anyone who cares about the spiritual implications of our current trajectory, our interconnectedness with each other and with the soul of the earth.

HASH(0x91074240) étoiles sur 5 Uplifting approach to healing our planet, ourselves 19 août 2013
Par Ilona Meagher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is so refreshing, so empowering, so magic-revealing and so human meaning-making. If your response to the environmental challenges we face (yes, they *are* serious and quite painful to digest) is to tune out and weep as if all is already lost, this book may buy you some hope.

More of us putting its concepts to practice may also buy Gaia (and all of her life forms) more time.

HASH(0x910742a0) étoiles sur 5 The Cry of the Earth 18 septembre 2013
Par kj - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The message of Spiritual Ecology takes the reader beyond politics and social movements to the heart of the need for awareness, attention and awakening to the cry of the earth.

"The prophets told of the time ahead,explained the deluge of past and predicted the two paths of the future:one scorched and one green ....All of us have the same choice, and somewhere in this time, there is the potential to take the right path." Winona La Duke p. 85

Do we dare to see ,to feel and respond?

This book is filled with deep wisdom that encourages us to participate in creating a new consciousness and a transformed relationship with our Earth.

"A human being is part of the whole called by us,'the universe' a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves ,our thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest- a kind of optical illusion of our consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us,restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of Nature in its beauty." Albert Einstien quoted by Jungian analyst,author and scholar Jules Cashford p.173
