By Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Special for USDR
Spiritual Ecology: 10 Practices to Reawaken the Sacred in Everyday Life offers a response to the current environmental crisis and the growing awareness of climate change — and the worldwide urgent question of our time: “What can each of us do?”
Faced with this question, Vaughan-Lee answers here with practical and inspiring guidance for connecting to the sacred and responding to the ecological challenges of our age with wisdom, love, and spiritual responsibility. Simple daily activities such as Walking, Breathing, Gardening, Cooking with Love, and Prayer, are explored as the ground for inner and outer transformation, empowering readers to know the sacred in their lives and in relation to our Earth.
This small book, exquisite in its luminous simplicity, brings me home to my life. Even in a dark time, its practices center me in a sense of the sacred, our birthright. —Joanna Macy, Environmental Activist, Buddhist, teacher, and author

I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change…I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. — James Gustave Speth, former U.S. Advisor on climate change
