9780005992524: Green Man: The Archetype of our Oneness with the Earth

The Green movement and the women's movement have picked up on the scientific Gaia hypothesis, which suggests that the planet Earth is a single living organism. The next stage of the ecological revolution begins with the reawakening of the male counterpart of the Goddess, the Green Man, and archetype found in folklore and religious art from the earliest times, and especially linked with Christian origins of modern science. Long suppressed, the archetype emerges now to challenge us to heal our relationship with nature.

Review:

"Green Man is a vital archetype of our time." -- -- Robert Johnson, author of He, She, and We

"A fascinating and important book." - -- - Jennifer and Roger Woolger, authors of The Goddess Within

"A significant contribution to men's studies and healthy masculine spirituality." -- -- Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing and Creation Spirituality

"Green Man is a vital archetype of our time." -- Robert Johnson, author of He, She, and We

"Green Man is essential reading for those men who seek the mythic roots for a revitalized masculinity equal to the challenge of planetary culture." -- Robert L. Moore, Jungian analyst and coauthor of King, Warrior, Magician, Lover

"A fascinating and important book." - -- - Jennifer and Roger Woolger, authors of The Goddess Within

"A significant contribution to men's studies and healthy masculine spirituality." -- Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing and Creation Spirituality

"Not only completely convincing, but immensely enjoyable. For the first time the hidden power of the word 'Green'-now given to every activity, every person dedicated to stopping the devastation of the Earth and to a new 'greening' of the planet-is revealed in the Green Man as this image appears in the Western cultural tradition, especially in the folk tales, rituals, literature, and art and architecture of pasty centuries. The Green Movement will attain a new efficacy through this new understanding of itself, through the archetype of the Green Man that arises not simply out of our own Western traditions but from the unconscious depths of the human psyche. For this is the role of every archetype-to guide, inspire, and energize all our human activities." -- Thomas Berry, author of The Dream of Nature

"The complete story of the Green Man from the deep past to the present. The record of his survival in Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance art is truly fascinating. We learn how this vital symbol of the rebirth of planet life lived on, together with the symbol of Mother Earth, sometimes degraded and sometimes partially accepted by the Christian Church. Now this symbol, through this excellent book, comes back as the poet's archetype ('His words are leaves,' says the author). The revival of Green Man is a vital resource in renewing our lost unity with the world of Nature." -- Marija Gimbutas, author of The Language of the Goddess

"This rediscovery of the Green Man is a very timely, and has an important part to play in our search for a new relationship of living nature." -- Rupert Sheldrake, author of A New Science of Life
