The environmental “tipping point” we approach is more palpable each day, and people are seeing it in ways they can no longer ignore—we need only turn on the news to hear the litany of what is wrong around us. Serious reflection, inspiration, and direction on how to approach the future are now critical.

Hope Beneath Our Feet creates a space for change with stories, meditations, and essays that address the question, “If our world is facing an imminent environmental catastrophe, how do I live my life right now?” This collection provides tools, both practical and spiritual, to those who care about our world and to those who are just now realizing they need to care. Featuring prominent environmentalists, artists, CEOs, grassroots activists, religious figures, scientists, policy makers, and indigenous leaders, Hope Beneath Our Feet shows readers how to find constructive ways to channel their energies and fight despair with engagement and participation. Presenting diverse strategies for change as well as grounds for hope, the contributors to this anthology celebrate the ways in which we can all engage in beneficial action for ourselves, our communities, and the world.

Book Description North Atlantic Books, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Wonderfully uplifting and inspiringly diverse perspectives on aligning ourselves with the fullness of our own possibilities as individuals and as a species. The bottom line: flavor and savor every moment, especially the toughest ones, with not-knowing, with good will, imagination, kindness, wisdom, humor, community, and action. My father-in-law, Howard Zinn, said it so well: "Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.'" -Jon Kabat-Zinn, author ofFull Catastrophe LivingandComing to Our Senses "Hope Beneath Our Feetis just that. With penetrating clarity it takes us into the depths of our essential nature: our courage, brilliance, and resilience. We are called to take advantage of the greatest opportunity for conscious self-evolution the human species has ever been given. A real masterwork." -Barbara Marx Hubbard, author ofConscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potentialand founder of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution "This is a wonderful, inspirational book composed of works by thoughtful, intelligent, and caring people discussing the fact that we and our fellow species face extinction if we proceed with life as we have in the last two hundred years. As I continue to struggle with the monumental challenges facing the human psyche, the hope and new ideas embedded in these essays have lifted my flagging spirits. Essential reading." -Helen Caldicott, author ofNuclear Power Is Not the Answer to Global Warming and If You Love This Planet "There is no more meaningful action we can take than to struggle on behalf of life on this planet. The profoundly hopeful and inspiring essays in this anthology help us remember our place in the web of life and recover a deep awareness of our own ecological identity, motivating us to continue our efforts." -John Seed, founder of the Rainforest Information Centre in New South Wales, Australia and co-author ofThinking Like a Mountain: Towards a Council of All Beings "This fierce collection is a pragmatic and poetic call to action for the environmental predicament that we've authored. Its message is compelling and, if acted upon, contains powerful medicine to heal ourselves and the planet." -Richard Strozzi-Heckler, author ofThe Leadership Dojo "A major antidote for despair is engagement and participation: that is the key message of this collection of leading thinkers and doers hard at work on the dire problem of worldwide ecological decline. What creative responses to the crisis of our time await beyond weary save-the-world technologism, activism, and heroism? What can you do, today, to help? Find out here." -Craig Chalquist, co-editor ofEcotherapy: Healing with Nature in Mindand core faculty member at John F. Kennedy University "Hope Beneath Our Feetis the tonic needed right now in the world to inspire the many of us who care about preserving our earth but wonder if humankind can actually get it together. The chorus of voices in this book gives us much hope that we can. Read this book and learn why, and then help bring it into being by taking action beneath your feet." -David Gershon, Author of Social Change 2.0: A Blueprint for Reinventing Our WorldandLow Carbon Diet: A 30 Day Program to Lose 5,000 Pounds "We are learning to see and hear a new kind of beauty. That beauty is in the clear and urgent prose of this book." -Coleman Barks, author ofThe Essential RumiandThe Book of Love "This book presents a rich lode of psychological resilience for those who suffer from a depletion of ecological optimism. The authors of this uplifting compendium embody the hope and wisdom that flows from rootedness.". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1556439199
