- Mark Richmond, UNESCO

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."

The Song of the Earth is given power by the fact that its contributors are not merely theorists – they live what they teach and write. Review by Swami Ambikananda Saraswati, founder of The Traditional Yoga Association, Reading, UK
Review
From the outset this book offers us an alternative perspective on human beings as holders of a consciousness that can flow in the direction of the full realisation of our potential – if only we direct it so. While this is a book of astonishingly creative thought, it is not simply another outburst of grand theory. Rather, it is the outpouring of lived experience. Those of us who are teachers and community leaders need to applaud and thank the authors. It can enrich and inform all the work that we do. (Posted on 06/11/2012)
Bravo! Review by Steve Nation, co-convenor of the Spiritual Caucus at the United Nations
Review
Nothing is more important today than clarification of the deep spiritual principles that are emerging through the human response to the problems of climate change, poverty, pollution and inequity. The Song of the Earth is a pioneering work, synthesizing spiritual, scientific and development paradigms through a wide variety of voices. Bravo!
