5.0 out of 5 stars Delve into the Journey, March 24, 2004
I have long held a deep interest in and have studied ecopsychology, and I currently work with EarthLinks, a Denver-based non-profit organization that provides experiential earth education, specifically creating a healing context for at-risk homeless adults and others on society's margins -- thus I was naturally drawn to a new book by Bill Plotkin titled Soulcraft. In it, Plotkin, a depth psychologist, ecotherapist and wilderness guide, takes the reader on a wilderness journey of their own soul -- as the subtitle states: "Crossing into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche."
The current environmental devastation and sustainability challenge we face is due in large part to the dominant post-industrial consumer-culture's way of creating a 'disconnect' of ourselves from our own soul and from the natural world. As Bill Plotkin says: "When we become alienated from soul -- our inner nature -- we lose respect for outer nature, resulting in pollution and degradation of the environment." Soulcraft offers us an experiential guide to help re-awaken our contact with the soul and helps us rekindle a closer relationship with the natural world, where such wounds, both inner and outer, can be tended and healed. Deep learning can come from close contact with the inherent wisdom of nature -- and a deeper understanding of that wisdom is just what earth literacy is about, reading the 'book of nature.' Soulcraft is a engaging guide to discovering the wilderness of Earth as mentor to and mirror of our own inner wilderness.
I recommend Soulcraft as essential reading for anyone wishing to delve deeper into their own inner journey and into the larger journey we all strive for as we transform our culture toward a sustainable future, and a mutually enhancing human /earth relationship.
