“When our love of the Earth and our astonishment, our marvelling, our wonder and reverence for the vastness and mystery of the universe becomes the focus of our spiritual lives, rather than some far off, dreamed-of heaven, then just as the Earth feeds our bodies, she also feeds our souls.”
~ Marian Van Eyk McCain, from GreenSpirit: Path to a New Consciousness

- Only by understanding the Universe as a vast, holistic system and Earth as a unit within it can we help restore balance to that unit.
- Only by placing Earth and its ecosystems about which we now understand so much – at the centre of all our thinking can we avert ecological disaster.
- Only by bringing our thinking back into balance with feeling, intuition and awareness and by grounding ourselves in a sense of the sacred in all things can we achieve a new level of consciousness.
- Green spirituality is the key to a new twenty-first-century consciousness. And this book is the most comprehensive ever written on the subject.
