Self-discovery is not always an easy path. But we have reached a point where action is required if we as a species are going to continue to live on this planet. Luckily, we don't have to take action alone.
This book is a crisp, readable, and admirably concise guide to doing something about [the way that our societies and lifestyles have embraced the pretense that we are somehow separate from nature], beginning at the place where real change always has to start -- our own bodies, minds, and choices.
Reconnecting to the Earth sets out to do some of the same things I tried to do in Mystery Teachings from the Living Earth, but Hoopes' book has a focus on everyday practice and a simplicity of approach that's really admirable and gives it its own distinct value. I can recommend it to anybody who's interested in nature-centered spirituality or simply wants to live a less artificial existence.
