This is the ninth title in the GreenSpirit Book Series. ‘Awakening to Earth-Centred Consciousness’ shares personal stories, engages thoughtfully with green topics, and provides insightful teachings about our interconnected relationships with the natural world. A wide range of major subjects are covered such as green burials, veganism, raising green awareness in the Amazon, elephant protection, ecopsychology, and how Nature can heal us.

This book encourages us to embrace an inclusive, compassionate and mindful spirituality – one that leads to interacting with profound levels of life and Nature, of which we are all wondrously interwoven and a part, and the essential obligations this brings for responsible Gaia-centred living.
