How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Our present ecological crisis is the greatest man-made disaster this planet has ever faced-its accelerating climate change, species depletion, pollution and acidification of the oceans. A central but rarely addressed aspect of this crisis is our forgetfulness of the sacred nature of creation and how this effects our relationship to the environment. There is a pressing need to articulate a spiritual response to this ecological crisis. This is vital and necessary if we are to help bring the world as a living whole back into balance. This compilation includes contributions from: * Oren Lyons * Thomas Berry * Thich Nhat Hanh * Chief Tamale Bwoya * Joanna Macy * Sandra Ingerman * Richard Rohr * Wendell Berry * Mary Evelyn Tucker * Sister Miriam MacGillis * Satish Kumar * Vandana Shiva * Pir Zia Inayat-Kahn * Winona LaDuke * John Stanley * John Newall * Bill Plotkin * Geneen Marie Haugen * Jules Cashford * Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

About the Author

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee was born in London in the year 1953. He began following the Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Sufi path at the age of 19, after meeting Irina Tweedie, author of Daughter of Fire: A Diary of a Spiritual Training with a Sufi Master. He became Irina Tweedie's successor and a teacher in the Naqshbandiyya Sufi Order. In 1991 he moved to Northern California and founded The Golden Sufi Center to help make available the teachings of this Sufi Lineage (see www.goldensufi.org). Author of several books, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee has lectured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe on Sufism, mysticism, Jungian psychology and dreamwork. He has also specialized in the area of dreamwork, integrating the ancient Sufi approach to dreams with the insights of Jungian Psychology. Since 2000 the focus of his writing and teaching has been on spiritual responsibility in our present time of transition, and an awakening global consciousness of oneness. More recently he has written about the feminine, the world soul, the Anima Mundi, and the emerging field of spiritual ecology (see www.workingwithoneness.org). He has also hosted a number of Sufi conferences bringing together different Sufi orders in North America (see www.suficonference.org).

They are eloquent and passionate pleas for the planet."

Their words help us find our true home and our rightful place within the great turning world of Nature." Stephen Harding, PhD, author, "Animate Earth," founding member, Schumacher College" "It's hard to imagine finding a wiser group of humans than the authors represented here, all of them both thinkers and do-ers in the greatest battle humans have ever faced. An epic collection!" Bill McKibben, author, "Deep Economy" and "The End of Nature"" "We live in a time of ecological uncertainty and we need opportunities to reconnect with the sacred.

Bingham, founder, The Regeneration Project Interfaith Power & Light" "This gathering of elders from all over the globe is nothing short of a modern oracle whose voices translate the wisdom of the Earth we must care for.
