Inspired by physicist and environmental leader Dr. Vandana Shiva, this collection of essays draw on the wisdom of ancient and modern traditions to remind readers of the profound sacredness of the seed?how in its purity, it is the source and renewal of all of life. For centuries the planting of the seed in the earth not only nourished humanity, but also symbolized the mystery of life and the journey of the soul. Yet, modern culture has begun to lose an appreciation of the primal meaning of the seed. Tenderly created from original writings of mystics, shamans, monastics, and priests, and featuring vibrant photos, this book bears witness that the Earth is alive, and establishes that only by working together with the earth?with its wonder and mystery?can we help in its healing and regeneration and once again bring meaning back into the world. The book includes contributions from His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, H. H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Swami Veda Bharati, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Chief Tamale Bwoya, Blu Greenberg, and others.
About the Author: Initiated by Dr. Vandana Shiva, and compiled and edited by The Global Peace Initiative of Women (GPIW). Dr. Shiva is a world-renowned environmental leader and the recipient of the Right Livelihood Award. She is the author of several bestselling books, including Earth Democracy, and is a leader and board member of the International Forum on Globalization. GPIW is an interreligious organization that seeks to bring spiritual resources to aid in addressing critical global issues. The basis of their work is the dynamic expression of unity, emerging from the heart of wisdom of the world?s spiritual traditions, and our own hearts, into a new story for the human community. An essential part of this shift is the coming into a sacred relationship with the Earth and all the living forces of the universe.
