Banyen's Description: 

Originally published in 1981 and newly revised in 1997, this is the personal story of a spiritual pioneer with the ability to “see” and “hear” the invisible forces of nature. Her personal history is one of recovery from a childhood of torment and isolation to discovery of her ability to communicate with the world of nature spirits and devas. At “Perelandra,” her 45-acre private nature research center in Virginia, Machaelle devotes her life to understanding and demonstrating a new approach to ecological balance.

Behaving as if the God in All Life Mattered tells the story of the foundation and development of co-creative gardening; shows the ecological effects of thoughts; outlines the roles of the animal, mineral and plant kingdoms; and goes well beyond theory in exploring humankind’s largely unrealized custodianship of Planet Earth.

Despite all this earnest technology and research, what we need to do now is turn our attention to nature itself, recognize the intelligence inherent in all natural form on Earth and allow it to teach us what we need to know in order that we may apply that information to our lives and our technology, and pull ourselves out of the present ecological mess....

The desire of the intelligences within nature to connect with us, to communicate and work with us, is intense. The quality of our life and of all life forms on Earth depends on our willingness to learn how to act and move in such a way that we enhance life quality, not damage or destroy it.


Along with sharing my work with nature and the results of that work, I have included a section on my personal history. I do this so that you can see that there was a logical progression in my life that brought me to the point where I could accept the reality of nature intelligences.
