Creatively Maladjusted

Creatively Maladjusted, Theodore Richards“Richards wants to shape edu­ca­tion by story rather than by infor­ma­tion, by resisting con­sumerism rather than edu­cating for it. The goal of edu­ca­tion, he reminds us, ‘is not to make better schools, but to make a better world.’ And ‘the ulti­mate rel­e­vance of a school is what kind of civ­i­liza­tion it inspires our chil­dren to create.’ Modern indus­trial cul­ture has pretty much defined edu­ca­tion in its terms; we can do much better today and must. The metaphors, nar­ra­tives and values of our edu­ca­tional system are out­moded. A Wisdom Education Movement can bring alive new values that assure a ‘nur­turing, cre­ative, joyous, inspiring place.’ This book is well worth reading; and dis­cussing; and arguing; and enacting.” —Matthew Fox, author of Creativity: Where the Divine and the Human Meet More Info »

Fireflies at Absolute

Fireflies at Absolute ZeroFireflies at Absolute Zero is a map of a life, written in location and longing, its calligraphy the surreal moments between dream and waking. The poems are shaped by myth, the Gaelic poetic tradition, dream worlds, personal history, and the grey-green landscape of the Salish Sea. From snowfall in the Hoh rainforest to the sensuality of a lover's touch, the poems span decades of a life in motion, finally finding a home between the mountains and waters of the Pacific Northwest.

Sacred Reciprocity: Courting the Beloved in Everday Life

Sacred ReciprocityThe essence of ‘ayni’ is sacred reciprocity. Ayni emerges out of a universal perspective in which importance is placed on the relational flow of energy as a process of establishing and maintaining balance. Ayni can be seen as a code of conduct – a sacred agreement to engage in a balanced exchange between self and other. What is given may not be anywhere near as important as how it is given. In ayni, it is the heart that counts. Ayni can be established among people, between humans and all other beings, and between all beings and the animate Cosmos. More Info »

Border Crossings by Ian Marshall

Border Crossings“The International Appalachian Trail runs north from Mount Katahdin seven hundred miles to the end of the Gaspé Peninsula. Inspired by Basho, Ian Marshall hiked it for six summers, probing the poetics of haiku while exploring a vast and beautiful wilderness little known in the US. Marshall is an engaging trail companion and a superb story teller, with a self deprecating wit and sharp intellect that spice up his observations and ideas. Like Basho, he finds the miraculous in the common and elevates the humble walk into a spiritual practice, sprinkling his narrative with lovely original haiku that seem to have condensed in the moment, like droplets of dew. Backpackers will appreciate his pungent descriptions of life on the trail, and ecocritics will savor his abundant insights on poetry, nature, and culture. This lively book serves up a classic blend of high adventure, literary pilgrimage, and self discovery. It tastes as tart and fresh as wild raspberries.” —John Tallmadge, past-president of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment and author of The Cincinnati Arch: Learning from Nature in the City More Info »

Night, Mystery & Light by J.K. McDowell

Night Mystery and Light“McDowell often ends his poems with a challenge to “Jim,” a question usually asking him to make sense of his life. . . . we overhear this final question as if it were directed at us. One of the joys of reading McDowell’s poetry is precisely this that his questions urge us to make deeper sense of our own lives. You will discover, along with him, the almost seamless way the ordinary and non-ordinary realities of our soul’s deep dreaming support and create a multi-layered world to live in. It is a world that intrigues us while reading the poem and that lingers long after we lay the poem aside.” —Tom Cowan, from the foreword of Night, Mystery & Light More Info »

Western Solstice by Leonore Wilson

Western Solstice“Shimmering up and down the original Tree, nature, Western Solstice is a gnosis that explores intense sensual vividness, being, and the flesh through the terrestrial details of a large and generous human empathy. Political, fierce, and tender, Leonore Wilson’s poems take ‘cadence inside herself,’ and ‘anti-matter and matter flagellating, palpitating’ into mysteries of life and death, female presence, the planet, gender, and music. Her process is transformative; the reader’s experience is deliciousness, Gaia, sweet substance, ’Eden to the wasp, shelter and elixir’: like eating ‘Billy Holliday’s limbering voice’; like ’consummating fallen darkness and diffused and fascinating’; or, like ‘being fed clear to the core, and distance bent backwards’—chords of an embodying, gorgeous, and intimate art.” —‘Annah Sobelman, author of In the Bee Latitudes and The Tulip Sacrament More Info »

Estuaries by Jason Kirkey

EstuariesThe poems in this book are an attempt to speak in a common tongue with mountains, rivers, and forests. Too often poetry is thought of as the domain of human creativity with its source in the depths of the imagination. We use it to speak of the world, but not to the non-human world—let alone with it. The poems in Estuaries suggest that speech and poetry are fundamentally rooted in the ecosystem—the detritus of fallen leaves, the curvature of a river bend, and the sound of rain on a heron’s wings. All of this might be regarded as the speech of the Earth. When we speak or write poetry that engages these voices we become participant in the patterns of the watershed. More Info »

Note to Self by Jamie K. Reaser

Note to Self: Poems for Changing the World from the Inside Out“This is poetry for the soul…It took me down into my depths, beckoning me to dig fearlessly into my composted dreams, commitments, and deep yearnings. I resisted the urge to read the entire collection in one sitting, instead ruminating over each poem as one might a grand painting or a sacred gospel.” —Christopher Uhl, PhD, author of Developing Ecological Consciousness: Path to a Sustainable World More Info »

Cosmosophia by Theodore Richards

Cosmosophia: Cosmology, Mysticism, and the Birth of a New Myth“Richards writes skillfully and soulfully about the most pressing issues of our times, and the deeper crisis out of which they have emerged. Drawing from a vast trove of knowledge about the world’s religious, mystical, and philosophical traditions, he extracts the most valuable gems, polishes them with the revolutionary insights of modern science, and forges a radiant, new cosmosophy—a universal wisdom that honors the wisdom of the universe. The beauty of this mythos is that it, like the cosmos, is not static but dynamic, inviting our active participation and imaginative engagement. This book succeeds in instilling reverence for a living universe and hope for a dying planet. May Cosmosophia blossom and flourish in the hearts of all beings!” —Darrin Drda, author of The Four Global Truths More Info »

The Salmon in the Spring by Jason Kirkey

The Salmon in the Spring: The Ecology of Celtic Spirituality“Here at the end of the Cenozoic Era with the life systems withering away, a surprising creativity appears, a kind of mystical balancing act. The world’s spiritual traditions are entering into deeply engaged conversations through which the riches of each are ignited in new ways. With The Salmon in the Spring, Jason Kirkey has boldly carved out his place in this exciting work with his original interpretations of the concepts and stories of ancient Ireland . . . Kirkey’s vision speaks directly to our present ecological challenge. Rejecting those nature-denying forms of spirituality that have been used too easily to justify our domestication of the planet, The Salmon in the Spring announces its thrilling spiritual foundation: “Our wild nature is our soul.” —Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies More Info »

Songs from a Wild Place by Jason Kirkey

Songs from a Wild PlaceSongs from a Wild Place is Jason Kirkey’s second volume of poetry after Portraits of Beauty. Its motifs range from self-transformation, quiet revelations found in the natural world, love, and the re-imagination of culture and spirit; guiding the reader from the gnosis of personal identity through to the revelation of ‘no-self,’ and back to the world where we become beacons of deep love and transformation. In all cases the poetry in this collection emerges out of a conversation with the world at the edge of individual identity. It is a call to inner revolution, of finding the authentic voice and using it to create transformation in both the human and other-than-human circles. More Info »
