Overview

The urge to live in harmony with Nature has never been stronger, yet humanity's onslaught on the Planet reaches new levels every decade. In Green Spirituality we visit India's wisest souls in search of the root causes of man's destructiveness toward Nature. We tell the stories of how our spiritual traditions have sought to provide the wisdom to guide us. For practical answers our pilgrimage moves from India to the pioneering eco-village communities of which many members have their own spiritual practices.
For Chris Philpott, green educator activist with 28 years in Agenda 21, Transition Towns, Campaign against Climate Change, Green Spirituality and Inter-faith, this book is a lifework. It has taken him 13 years to research and write. He felt honoured with the Foreword from Dr Vandana Shiva, the international speaker, author and environmental activist.
Find inside: --succinct accounts of the hazards facing our Planet; --how our distorted values play out in world impoverishment; --how pollution migrates to poor countries; --profound wisdom and abundant inspiration in the stories behind the main world spiritual traditions. Easily understood presentation enables the reader to make positive and informed choices helped by practical hints and websites. Includes wise words from over 100 spiritual leaders the author interviewed throughout India in 2002. Explores the dreams that inspire eco-village communities, living examples striving towards sustainability.
"Sustainability is as much a spiritual imperative as it is a political and economic challenge. Chris Philpott admirably highlights this dimension in his book Green Spirituality." Satish Kumar, founder of Resurgence Magazine, author of Earth Pilgrim, 2009.
"Chris Philpott's book will provide a unique insight into the spiritual changes we will have to make if society is to survive the global warming threat. I highly recommend him." Mark Lynas, author of the acclaimed Six Degrees, 2008.
