As the world grows more and more out of balance, we urgently need to regain a relationship with the planet based upon the understanding of the world as a sacred and living whole, and to reclaim a consciousness that is centered in that understanding. Only if we redeem the problem at the root can we hope to heal and come back into balance with our environment.
