The core premise of the work is that our global
environmental and social crises are of our own
making and can only be transformed by us. Therefore
it is imperative that humanity finds ways of
protecting and sustaining the natural environment
for our collective survival. This necessarily
depends on human beings ability to co-exist in
harmony with other humans and species and to feel
connected to and protect nature.
This work examines three spiritual or wisdom
traditions Australian Aboriginal spiritualities, the
Goddess movement and Tibetan Buddhism, as they
relate to Arne Naess''s concept of the ecological
self. The ecological self is a psychological
construct that suggests that human beings can evolve
from a narrow egocentric way of being and relating
to others, to one that is more open, inclusive. The
three spiritual traditions provide a compassionate
and non-violent view of human consciousness that has
the potential to transform into an ecologically
sensitive creative force.
This work would be of particular interest
to, academics, students, educators and spiritual
practitioners interested in the natural environment,
spirituality, psychology or story.
