Banyen's Description: 

In this timely third book in his Spiritual Ecology series, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee continues his exploration of the many facets of interconnection between humanity and the Earth. Likening Spring to falling in love, Summer with abundance and spiritual awakening, and Autumn with fruition and wisdom, the book continuously reflects the profound resonance of humanity within nature. The illustrations are beautiful and resonate deeply with the text. And each season's section includes a few well-chosen poems—from T.S. Eliot, Ryokan, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Gregory of Nyssa, e.e. cummings, etc.

What does it mean to live in the Winter of our world, at the end of an era? How can the patterns of nature and the cycles of the soul help us to connect with the teaching within this present moment, to see what life and the Earth are telling us? Only from this understanding can we gain access to the tools, the spiritual and moral values, that can help the Earth and humanity in this darkening season, and then in the transition from Winter to Spring, to what is waiting to be born.

Never more relevant than now, the chapter on Winter points the reader to what is most essential even as the temporal is stripped away like autumn leaves, providing some assurance that there is meaning and even peace amidst the most devastating losses. As with other books in this series, Vaughan-Lee places the human story within the story of the Earth helping the reader to rediscover their place within the wider context of our common home and its sacred nature.

The work of spiritual ecology is to reconnect with the sacred, so that we can return to a way of life that is in balance with the Earth. This little book weaves poems, images, and stories of the soul together with the greater story of the spiritual nature of the Earth, so that we can rejoin "the great conversation" with the rivers and the forests and the winds and the stars.

The earlier books in this series are Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth and Spiritual Ecology: 10 Practices to Awaken the Sacred in Everyday Life.
