“Our responsibility to the Earth is not simply to preserve it, it is to be present to the Earth in its next sequence of transformations.
~ From Meditations with Thomas Berry

A collection of profound and inspiring quotations from one of the most important voices of our times: the late Thomas Berry, author, geologian, cultural historian and lover of the Earth. It includes several quotations from work that Berry co-authored with cosmologist Brian Swimme. All the quotations were selected and arranged by June Raymond especially for GreenSpirit publication. Along with her introduction, June has included her suggestions on how the book may be used as a tool for meditation.

This small but immensely rich in content book demands a permanent place on every eco-spiritual reader’s bookshelf. It was first published by GreenSpirit Books and later made available with design changes in our GreenSpirit Book Series.

“If there is to be real and sustainable progress, it must be a continuing enhancement of life for the entire planetary community. It must be shared by all the living, from the plankton in the sea to the birds above the land. It must include the grasses, the trees, and the living creatures of the earth.
~ From Meditations with Thomas Berry
