Our present ecological crisis is the greatest man-made disaster this planet has ever facedits 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 Lyonsa*Thomas Berrya*Thich Nhat Hanha*Chief Tamale Bwoyaa*Joanna Macya*Sandra Ingermana*Richard Rohra*Wendell Berrya*Mary Evelyn Tuckera*Sister Miriam MacGillis*Satish Kumara*Vandana Shivaa*Pir Zia Inayat-Kahn*Winona LaDukea*John Stanleya*John Newalla*Bill Plotkina*Geneen Marie Haugena*Jules Cashforda*Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
