"Thich Nhat Hanh eloquently reminds us that to be alive is both a blessing and an honor to uphold."—Alan Weisman
Thich Nhat Hanh offers a dramatic vision of the future of our planet and links his contemplation of environmental destruction to the Buddhist teachings of interconnectedness and the impermanence of all things. Rather than seeing impermanence as an excuse for disengaging from the world, he argues passionately that engaging with the world is the key to our individual and collective survival.
"Only when we combine environmentalism with spiritual practice will we find the tools to make the profound personal transformations needed to address the planetary crisis. This book by the great Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh can be our guide." —Melvin McLeod
"This is an urgent call from a revered spiritual teacher about the moral imperative to treat the earth with respectful awareness. — Publisher's Weekly
This is the perfect book for anyone looking for ways and suggestions to take practice off the cushion and into a life that is more balanced, peaceful, and more engaged and interested co-existence with our planet rather than dominance over it.—Elephant Journal
