|Short title||Earth Wisdom|
|Long title||Earth Wisdom - a heartwarming mixture of the spiritual, the practical and the proactive|
- full of folklore, insights, practical exercises, and meditations Review by Maddy Harland, editor Permaculture magazine
What I like best is that it is about rooting ourselves in our landscape and culture, using our herbs and the yields of our native trees with wisdom and respect and reconnecting ourselves with the Earth's cycles, not running away with the fairies. It's full of ways of becoming in tune with nature and reversing the trend of disconnection and depoilment. This is spiritual activism - how we can practically translate our awareness of the stillness and beauty of Nature into a sense of Oneness with the planet and its people an act from that place.
