The premise of Greening of the Self is that we are not individuals separate from the world. Instead we are always “co-arising” or co-creating the world, and we cannot escape the consequence of what we do to the environment. Joanna Macy’s innovative writing beautifully demonstrates that by broadening our view of what constitutes “self” we can cut through our dualistic views and bring about the emergence of the “ecological self.”
Based on a chapter in Joanna Macy’s bestselling World as Lover, World as Self.
