About the Author:

Karen Harwell spent her early years living in the beauty and majesty of the Colorado Rockies. She received her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Colorado. She has done graduate study in philosophy, cosmology and consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, completed a six-week Earth Literacy program at Genesis Farm in New Jersey, and was certified in the study of permaculture at Occidental Arts and Ecology in California. She currently lives in Palo Alto, California, where she has made her home into a model of sustainability and where she engages the neighborhood children in the Dana Meadows Organic Garden. Joanna Reynolds grew up in what is now called Silicon Valley, but which used to be called The Valley of Heart's Delight for its fertile land and acres of fruit orchards. She spent many years working in education, developing curriculums and facilitating courses and programs designed to inspire participation in the conscious evolution of culture. As a co-director of the Exploring a Sense of Place program, Joanna spent many years helping to hone the curriculum, contributing from her extensive experience and love of the natural world.

Review:

Ask yourself these questions: On what day are the shadows shortest where you live? From what direction do winter storms arrive? I did, and the answers required some thought. And that's where Harwell and Reynolds' Exploring a Sense of Place steps in: to provide a tool "to create your own local program for reconnecting with nature," based on the successful model that the authors created in and around Palo Alto. Too often we're so caught up in our lives that, while we leave footprints outdoors, we're resistant to the outdoors leaving its footprints on us. Such natural imprinting is what the Sense of Place programs are all about. --Bay Nature Magazine

We are slowly recognizing that the failure to understand and revere place has unleashed a toxic assault on the conditions and communities of life that are the very umbilical cord to our own human existence. This recognition can not happen quickly enough, not only for our physical survival, but also for the survival of our human souls. Reawakening our inherent spiritual, psychological and bodily bonds to the Earth and place is now a necessity. This guide, Exploring a Sense of Place, is a remarkable inner and outer compass for helping any community anywhere rediscover the ground of its being and its roadmap to any future worth living. --Sister Miriam Therese MacGillis

We are finally learning that the fundamental experiences of the natural world are inherent necessities for us to reason clearly and shape a fulfilling course of human affairs. How to recover this elementary contact with the natural world is the subject of Exploring a Sense of Place. It is a wonderful example of the Great Work. --Thomas Berry
