The urge to live in harmony with Nature has never been stronger, yet humanity's onslaught on the Planet reaches new levels every decade. In Green Spirituality we visit India's wisest souls in search of the root causes of man's destructiveness toward Nature. We tell the stories of how our spiritual traditions have sought to provide the wisdom to guide us. For practical answers our pilgrimage moves from India to the pioneering eco-village communities of which many members have their own spiritual practices.

For Chris Philpott, green educator activist with 28 years in Agenda 21, Transition Towns, Campaign against Climate Change, Green Spirituality and Inter-faith, this book is a lifework. It has taken him 13 years to research and write.

About the Author:

Green Spirituality author Chris Philpott is fascinated with Nature and feels concerned for the Planet our home which humankind seems intent on destroying. Why are we so self destructive, asks Chris. To get answers, he set off to Africa and on to India to talk with some of its wisest to gain from their wisdom on how we can address these crucial issues facing us today.

The germ for the project came to Chris in 1972 when he learned about the then famous Club of Rome report Limits to Growth, the first to highlight the impacts of a consumer society and to warn of the impossibility of unlimited growth within a finite system.

Chris's involvement as educator activist in the green movement goes back 28 years. Chris is a regular campaigning organiser and participant in local and national issues as wide ranging as climate change and recycling as well as an initiator in biodiversity projects with children, local grow-your-own, LETS local exchange trading, his local Transition Town as well as meditation, inter-faith and green spirituality groups. He has contributed to Agenda 21 and the Green Party locally and nationally.

He has given talks on Green Spirituality at UK Green Party national conferences, the Big Green Gathering, the Climate Camps, the Campaign against Climate Change Forums and the Birmingham Inter-faith group. He is available for workshops on green spirituality.

Other hats Chris wears include workshop leader, public speaker, musician-performer and classic clown with which he entertains youngsters. His band, The Eco Worriers, entertains with Eco-music and lyrics.
