We need nature for our physical and psychological well-being. Our actions reflectthis when we turn to beloved pets for companionship, vacation in spots of natural splendor, or spendhours working in the garden. Yet we are also a technological species and have been since wefashioned tools out of stone. Thus one of this century's central challenges is to embrace ourkinship with a more-than-human world -- "our totemic self" -- and integrate that kinship with ourscientific culture and technological selves. This book takes on that challengeand proposes a reenvisioned ecopsychology. Contributors consider such topics as the innate tendencyfor people to bond with local place; a meaningful nature language; the epidemiological evidence forthe health benefits of nature interaction; the theory and practice of ecotherapy; Gaia theory;ecovillages; the neuroscience of perceiving natural beauty; and sacred geography. Taken together,the essays offer a vision for human flourishing and for a more grounded and realistic environmentalpsychology. The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.

This brief but ambitious book explores our relationship with nature through the imagery we use when we talk about Mother Nature. Employing the critical tools of religious studies, psychology, and gender studies, Catherine M. Roach examines the various manifestations of nature as "mother" and what that idea implies for the way we approach the natural world. Part One, "Nature as Good Mother," discusses the notion that nature is, or is like, a beneficent and nurturing mother who provides and maintains life. In studying the "green" slogan "Love Your Mother," Roach questions the effects-for women and for the environment-of imputing female gender to nature. She asks us to look at the associations "motherhood" and "mothering" carry within a culture still shaped by patriarchy. She notes the danger of such an apparently pro-environmental slogan if "mother" evokes the bountiful, self-sacrificing provider who herself requires no care.Part Two, "Nature as Bad Mother," looks at the contrary notion of nature as a violent, threatening, and wrathful mother. This image arises most often when humans and technology are depicted as masters of unruly nature. Here Roach draws on theological reflection to analyze this ambivalence toward nature manifested in a fantasy that casts humans as gods. She explores the contributions of eco-theology and eco-psychology to a "heart of darkness" perspective. Finally, Part Three, "Nature as Hurt Mother," looks at possibilities and pitfalls of environmental healing inherent in the image of nature as a mother we have wounded and now seek to heal.ALSO OF INTEREST ECOFEMINISMWomen, Culture, NatureEdited by Karen J.

Once people were instinctively tuned to the beautiful. In those distant days before the advent of the motor car and the washing machine, the electric toothbrush and the wheel, craftsmen and musicians, masons and poets, painters and dancers simply did not know how to make an ugly thing; they could not close their hearts to the light of heaven. For them--countless numbers of them--beauty was as necessary as the air they breathed. It gave dignity and meaning to drab and impoverished lives, and inspired great (but often brutal) civilizations in which people lived creative and useful lives. Beauty is the nourishment of the soul. It is something that gives us dignity as a species. John Lane calls us to awaken to the possibilities of a culture that recognizes the importance of beauty, and to acknowledge that we are only fully human in contact with the beautiful.

In this compelling book, C. Shakti Marquis explores not only the latest health research about animal products, but also looks at the latest ethical, environmental, psychological and ecospiritual reasons people are choosing veganism. She relates the philosophical shift in our dietary choices to the larger paradigm shift necessarily underway in our society to deal with the current ethical, economic, psychospiritual and health crises. Psychologically we were designed to want to live in harmony with, and care for, animals (here termed "faunaphilia"). She shows how our minds, our bodies and our natural food system were logically and beautifully designed to "work" together to create a lifestlye in which plants, animals, and people live harmoniously. The book discusses this new philosophy, which she terms the Vegan Paradise Paradigm. It also includes questions and activities, vegan deep ecology exercises, starter recipes and information on converting to the vegan lifestyle.

In 1972--a period of social upheaval much like today--sociologist Colin Campbell posited a 'cultic milieu': An underground region where true seekers test hidden, forgotten, and forbidden knowledge. Ideas and allegiances within the milieu change as individuals move between loosely organized groups, but the larger milieu persists in opposition to the dominant culture. Jeffrey Kaplan and Helene Loow find Campbell's theory especially useful in coming to grips with the varied oppositional groups of today.
