Healing Earth

A true pioneer and respected elder in ecological recovery and sustainability shares effective solutions he has designed and implemented. A stand-out from the sea of despairing messages about climate change, well-known sustainability elder John Todd, who has taught, mentored, and inspired such well-known names in the field as Janine Benyus, Bill McKibben, and Paul Hawken, chronicles the different ecological interventions he has created over the course of his career. Each chapter offers a workable engineering solution to an existing environmental problem: healing the aftermath of mountain-top removal and valley-fill coal mining in Appalachia, using windmills and injections of bacteria to restore the health of a polluted New England pond, working with community members in a South African village to protect an important river. A mix of both success stories and concrete suggestions for solutions to tackle as yet unresolved issues, Todd's narrative provides an important addition to the conversation about specific ways we can address the planetary crisis. Eighty-five color photos and images illustrate Todd's concepts. This is a refreshingly hopeful, proactive book and also a personal story that covers a known practitioner's groundbreaking career.

Healing Earth in All Her Dimensions

Empower Yourself and Your Species. Take Control of Your Own Evolution. Explore the way interdimensional shifts can be applied to help individual bodies and systems, as well as global and ecological systems, to bring about the healing and survival of yourself and the whole of the human species. Discover what must shift for human beings to open to the heightened awareness and powers that are rightfully theirs. Find out what it is that keeps humans from knowing all they can know about who they are and what thay are able to do in and beyond physical realities. Step into the Continuity of Life and walk on. This is volume four of the Continuity of Life Series. It explores the way these interdimensional-shift teachings can be applied to help global and ecological systems as well as individual systems, and to the healing and survival of the human species itself. Healing shifts in consciousness, dimensional awareness, and focus are described and set forth as the foundation and as the seed of all successful healing and change, as well as evolution. "Gain confidence in your consciousness and its truly enduring nature, and come to understand how powerful your conscious will--your free will--truly is. With knowledge comes the realization of the eternal and powerful nature of your consciousness that you can have before leaving (or traveling to and from) your physical body. "Expand your ability to independently evolve from your physical body. Prepare the way to expand beyond unnecessary limitations to develop new patterns of existence, healing, and transition--for yourself, your species, and even your ecosystem." -- Dr. Angela deAngelis

Christianity has been charged with being a key factor in the environmental crisies experienced across the world. Young considers these charges in the light of a biblical understanding of creation and humankind's place therein, and argues that when Scripture is properly interpreted, the God-centered perspective that results actually provides the best foundation for confronting and solving environmental problems.

Earth Revealing  Earth Healing

The damage human beings are doing to the atmosphere, the seas, the rivers, the land, and the life- forms of the planet is extreme and deadly. It constitutes a crisis that demands al of humanity's wisdom, ingenuity, and commitment. The whole human community needs to be involved in the response to this crisis - young and old, women and men, farmers, politicians, gardeners, teachers, planners, scientists, engineers, artists, builders, cooks, and theologians. In Earth Revealing - Earth Healing, the authors attempt to make clear the way in which Christian theology opens out into a theology of Earth revealing and challenges us towards a practice of Earth healing. Earth Revealing - Earth Healing offers a rethinking of theology as a significant part of the rethinking that the human community must do in its stance toward creation. Aware that some theological attitudes have contributed to exploitative attitudes and to disregard for the good of the planet, the contributors are also convinced that the biblical and theological tradition has resources that can be retrieved and developed as an ecological theology. Such a theology can contribute to the healing of our planet. The chapters of Earth Revealing - Earth Healing stretch across a number of theological sub- disciplines and related areas. Among the perspectives from the Christian theological tradition, there are reflections on the theology of the Trinity, Christology, Christian anthropology, the theology of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary feminist theology. There are also more general philosophical and cultural perspectives, including discussions of place and of landscape traditions. Finally there are practical perspectives, including discussions of globalization, the challenge of suffering and bioethics. Essays and contributors are The Landscape Tradition: A Broader Vision for Ecotheology," by Stephen Downs; *Globalization and Ecology, - by Christine Burke, IBVM; *'For Your Immortal Spirit Is in al Things': The Holy Spirit in Creation, - by Denis Edwards; *Enfleshing the Human: An Earth-Revealing, Earth-Healing Christology, - by Duncan Reid; *God's Shattering Otherness: The Trinity and Earth's Healing, - by Patricia Fox, RSM; *Embracing Unloveliness: Exploring Theology from the Dung heap, - by Lorna Hallahan; *Up Close and Personal: In the End, Matter Matters, - by Anthony Lowes; *The Relationship Quilt: Feminism and the Healing of Nature, - by Lucy Larkin; *A Timely Reminder: Humanity and Ecology in the Light of Christian Hope, - by Gregory Brett, CM; *Ecotheology as a Plea for Place, - by Phillip Tolliday; *Situating Humanity: Theological Anthropology in the Context of the Ecological Crisis, - by James McEvoy; and *Bioethics, Ecology, and Theology, - by Andrew Dutney. Denis Edwards is a senior lecturer in systematic theology at Catholic Theological College and in the ecumenical consortium at the Adelaide College of Divinity, Flinders University. He has written other books on theology and is a priest of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide. "

The Earth Prescription

Get in touch with the earth! This hands-on guide will help you deepen your innate bond with nature and feel more centered, focused, creative, and vibrantly alive. A life lived indoors is not a life lived. And yet many of us spend the majority of our days indoors, trapped in our own heads, addicted to our screens and online connections, and feeling more and more disconnected to our own bodies—and the planet—than ever before. Intuitively, we know that even a five-minute walk outdoors can calm us and awaken our senses, but we tell ourselves we don’t have time, or we can’t seem to make the time. In The Earth Prescription, holistic physician Laura Koniver, MD, offers the ideal antidote to the toxicity of a life isolated from nature—grounding, or directly touching the earth to heal your body and rejuvenate your sense of total well-being. Think about how good it feels to get outside and walk along the grass. This simple activity connects you to the earth, allowing you to reap its restorative powers—which include reducing depression, lowering blood pressure, curbing stress, and increasing happiness. With this practical and uplifting guide, you’ll learn how to incorporate the practice of grounding anytime, anywhere, and find tips for including kids or your favorite pooch.

This book will give you everything you need to enjoy the healing energy of nature—you simply have to get outside and get grounded.

Knitting Heaven and Earth

The first book without knitting patterns to capture the knitting audience, it has been widely imitated, but no other book has endured so well.

Knitting Heaven and Earth

From the author of the modern classic The Knitting Sutra comes an inspiring and colorful narrative on knitting through one’s darkest hours. Susan Gordon Lydon’s groundbreaking book The Knitting Sutra offered a new way for knitters to look at their craft—as a healing and meditative endeavor instead of a granny hobby or an indulgent pastime. The first book without knitting patterns to capture the knitting audience, it has been widely imitated, but no other book has endured so well. With Knitting Heaven and Earth, Lydon again breaks new ground, this time following the emotional ties that become bound up in her handicrafts when a series of wrenching events—a heartbreaking romance, the death of her father, a devastating diagnosis of breast cancer—leave her reeling. Through it all, Lydon finds new reserves of strength in knitting, in the skeins of sumptuous yarn and colorful thread that help her make sense of the trials of the heart.

The Healing Power of Mind

The true nature of our minds is enlightened and peaceful, as the depth of the ocean is calm and clear. But when we mentally grasp and emotionally cling to our wants and worries with all our energy, we lose our own enlightened freedom and healing power, only to gain stress and exhaustion, suffering and overexcitement, like the turbulent waves rolling on the surface of the ocean. Our minds possess the power to heal pain and stress, and to blossom into peace and joy, by loosening the clinging attitudes that Buddhists call "grasping at self." If we apply the mind's healing power, we can heal not only our mental and emotional afflictions, but physical problems also. This book is an invitation to awaken the healing power of mind through inspiring images and sounds, mindful movements, positive perceptions, soothing feelings, trusting confidence, and the realization of openness. The healing principle on which these exercises are based is the universal nature and omnipresent power envisioned in Mahayana Buddhism. Yet for healing, we don't have to be believers in any particular faith. We can heal body and mind simply by being what we truly are, and by allowing our own natural healing qualities to manifest: a peaceful and open mind, a loving and positive attitude, and warm, joyful energy in a state of balance and harmony.

Healing God s Earth

Rural communities and traditional cultures throughout North America and around the world are being systematically dismantled by the forces of urban civilization. It is no new phenomenon. For over four millennia, the powers of urban civilization have been playing God, oppressing people, and exploiting the earth. This long history has brought us to the brink of disaster in the current economic, ecological, and energy crises confronting the dominant global culture.This book reads the Bible through the lenses of rural communities. The Bible has something to say about the origin and character of urban civilization and the dynamic of its relationship to rural communities. Both Israel in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament were engaged in the formation of rural communities of faith living as alternatives to the dominant cultures of the urban civilizations in which they lived.It turns out that local, face-to-face communities, both rural and urban, along with traditional cultures of all stripes, are God's chosen instruments for the subversive, nonviolent disarming of urban civilization and the healing of God's earth.
