Reviews

This book does everything one can hope for. It begins with a shocking shared road encounter with what looks like, well, the Green Man of European folklore. It then travels through any number of well worn paranormal paths, each time, like the initial astonished encounter, spotting new (and yet very old) things and struggling mightily with the empirical highly strange aspects of the phenomena. The essayists do not flinch. They do not look away. They walk ahead, right into the dark green forest of religion, mythology, and folklore. What they bring back could signal major shifts in our intellectual, social, political, and moral landscapes with respect to a natural world that is really a super natural world, that is really us.-Jeffrey J. Kripal, PhD., author of Secret Body: Erotic and Esoteric Currents in the History of Religions Having joined the Green movement in 1973 after reading Limits to Growth, which warned of potentially devastating climate change, I have supported Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth etc., since then. Recently I have become a Green Town Councillor to further help in changing the way in which we live our lives. However, my work has always been in Parapsychology, both as a teacher and a researcher. I have always seen Parapsychology as the spiritual aspect of the Green movement, and have given talks and written articles to that end. So I am absolutely delighted that Jack has brought out this compilation of the Green aspects of the Paranormal, written from a very diverse array of perspectives. I hope that it makes a great impact on our society which is in desperate need of changing its predominant world view.-Serena Roney-Dougal, PhD., author of Where Science and Magic Meet
