Banyen's Description: 

The radiant and elegant cosmos that we can observe is in fact our own consciousness itself and not something outside of it.

While many experts point to the enormous complexity in addressing issues ranging from the destruction of ecosystems to the loss of millions of species, Thich Nhat Hanh identifies one key issue as having the potential to create a tipping point. He believes that we need to move beyond the concept of the "environment," as it leads people to experience themselves and Earth as two separate entities and to see the planet only in terms of what it can do for them. Thich Nhat Hanh deems it vital that we recognize and respond to the stress we are putting on the Earth if civilization is to survive and shows that mindfulness and a spiritual revolution are needed to protect nature and limit climate change.

Love Letter to the Earth is a hopeful book that gives us a path to follow by showing that change is possible only with the recognition that people and the planet are ultimately one and the same.

Chapter titles give a sense of this book:

We Are the Earth; Healing Steps; Welcome Home; Amplifying Our Power; Practices for Falling in Love with the Earth; Ten Love Letters to the Earth; and Toward a Cosmic Religion

When we truly have the insight that we and the Earth are one, and not two separate entities, all fear dissolves.

“Thich Nhat Hanh makes an eloquent, uplifting, and urgent call to recognize that our health and happiness are inextricably tied to Mother Earth and to all of our kin. We need this great wisdom if we are to move from our destructive path”—David Suzuki, The Sacred Balance

"Thich Nhat Hanh addresses the root cause of the environmental crisis and, in doing so, offers a roadmap to an entirely new dream of the Earth." —Wade Davis, Explorer in Residence, National Geographic Society, author of The Serpent and the Rainbow
