Song of the Earth brings together the voices of leading visionaries in science, spirituality, indigenous wisdom, innovative community, and social activism to paint a powerful portrait of new possibilities for the human family. People across the globe yearn for a new civilization of harmony and vibrant cooperation among all peoples – living in balance with the Earth. This vision is not a dreamy fantasy; it is the birthright of humanity.
Song of the Earth helps us to make this vision a reality. An insightful book that carries a message full of hope.

Song of the Earth has been endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), under the U.N. Decade of Education for Sustainability.
"Song of the Earth explores an emerging worldview which is shared between cultures all over the planet. ... The book asks important questions, such as: ... How can we not only survive but prosper together whilst protecting the planet's finite resources for future generations? How do we create a fairer, more equitable world that is capable of generating peace? ... These key questions are explored through the voices of many authors from all parts of the world."
Mark Richmond, UNESCO
"Song of the Earth contains voices that need to be heard, voices that affirm the unity of all of life. The Earth itself is calling to us to live this oneness, but we need to learn tolisten to Her, to Her mystery, wonder and suffering. The voices in this valuable book can help us in this essential work, help us to hear this song. Then we can live the changes that are so desperately needed, and evolve from an era of separation to the oneness that belongs to life itself."
