Native American leader, Tiokasin Ghosthorse, says, "Humanity must shift from living on the Earth to living with her." If we accept that the Earth is a living being, can we also accept that it is in our capacity to destroy it? In "Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth", scientists and spiritual leaders of diverse faiths come together to show us how we can transform our relationship with this sacred Earth so that we are living in harmony. The collection of essays in this book offer a response to the values and socio-political structures of recent centuries with their trajectory away from intimacy with the Earth and its sacred essence. This trailer gives an eye opening glimpse into the reflections and wisdom offered by these inspiring leaders.

    Touching and validating! As I science teacher I am continually baffled that teaching about the environment is so downplayed among people making decisions about curriculum. All this talk about STEM, but no talk about using it to solve an overarching crisis in respecting the Earth and its gifts to us.

    The inherent truth is the thread that runs through all these comments. Change or perish by your own hand is the path before us.
