‘The Spiritual Activist’ is a practical guide to individual and social transformation. It will help you create opportunities to slow down, build stronger relationships at home and at work, and embrace the world around you.
Here is a book of stories written by people who decided to act, in their own lives, in response to the challenges of our time, and found their own way to make a difference. They are not stories about celebrities or gurus of the environmental movement but honest accounts from people who share a concern for the world we live in and who, in the words of one of the contributors, “just got on with it”.
The search for a well being – well earth is dependent on real and regular opportunities for humans to experience themselves within powerful naturescapes. Unfortunately we spend less and less time outdoors. Our increasing everyday alienation from nature undermines the depth of heart and soul commitment for the earth.

The living world is not ‘out there’ somewhere, it’s in our hearts.

They are all connected. We are all connected.

We, the peoples and nations of Earth: considering that we are all part of Mother Earth, an indivisible, living community of interrelated and interdependent beings with a common destiny; gratefully acknowledging that Mother Earth is the source of life, nourishment and learning and provides everything we need to live well…
Changing society isn't a matter of breaking windows. It is a process of developing consciousness and vehicles of organisation and movement, and of then applying these to win gains that benefit deserving constituencies and create conditions for still further victories leading to permanent institutional change. Cultivating movement coherence, trust and solidarity - not just a small affinity group but far more widely - is a big part of this agenda.
