Reimagining Civilization in the Age of Nature
by Kenny Ausubel
Divided into three parts, Part One “It’s All Alive” introduces us to the clash of civilizations, old/new concepts of earth connectivity, cocreation stories, the reenchantment of the Earth, “nature’s operating instructions” and resilience thinking. In Part Two “Hungry Ghost Stories” Ausubel describes solutions to the reprehensible and criminal practices of Empire including ecocide, the toxicity of consumerism, public relations wars and corporate greed. With Part Three “Value Change for Survival” he rounds out his discourse with essays on clear thinking, shifting worldviews, the “law of love,” restorative justice, penal reform, peacemaking, clean energy, earth rights, the healing of nature and culture, and the Great Mystery as seen through the eyes of poets and seers.
In Dreaming the Future, Kenny Ausubel introduces us to diverse ideas, proposals, change-makers, visionaries and ecopreneurs from what he calls “a revolution from the heart of nature and the human heart.” Highly recommended. www.bioneers.org
