Today we face increasing environmental challenges, from climate change and extreme weather patterns to deforestation, threats to animal species, and ongoing farming and food-supply crises. Virtually every day brings new alarming reports. How are we to respond, especially if we wish to take a broader, spiritual view of these events? Steiner’s work is full of important, far-sighted perspectives on our relationship as human beings with the natural world. Indeed, his insights are more relevant today than they were in his time. Steiner offers us a new, conscious equilibrium with nature; we are not entitled simply to exploit the Earth, but neither should we view ourselves as devastating irritants on Earth’s surface. We are an integral part of the evolving natural world from which we arise. This world surrounds us, and we can rediscover ourselves within it, just as we can find all of nature transformed within us.In the extracts compiled in this volume―presented with commentary and notes by Matthew Barton―Steiner discusses human perception, the Earth, water, plants, animals, insects, agriculture, and natural catastrophes. Spiritual Ecology offers a wealth of original thought and spiritual insight on the future of the Earth and humanity.

Because of their spectacular, naturalistic pictures of plants and the human body, Leonhart Fuchs’s De historia stirpium and Andreas Vesalius’s De humani corporis fabrica are landmark publications in the history of the printed book. But as Picturing the Book of Nature makes clear, they do more than bear witness to the development of book publishing during the Renaissance and to the prominence attained by the fields of medical botany and anatomy in European medicine. Sachiko Kusukawa examines these texts, as well as Conrad Gessner’s unpublished Historia plantarum, and demonstrates how their illustrations were integral to the emergence of a new type of argument during this period—a visual argument for the scientific study of nature. To set the stage, Kusukawa begins with a survey of the technical, financial, artistic, and political conditions that governed the production of printed books during the Renaissance. It was during the first half of the sixteenth century that learned authors began using images in their research and writing, but because the technology was so new, there was a great deal of variety of thought—and often disagreement—about exactly what images could do: how they should be used, what degree of authority should be attributed to them, which graphic elements were bearers of that authority, and what sorts of truths images could and did encode. Kusukawa investigates the works of Fuchs, Gessner, and Vesalius in light of these debates, scrutinizing the scientists’ treatment of illustrations and tracing their motivation for including them in their works. What results is a fascinating and original study of the visual dimension of scientific knowledge in the sixteenth century.

In the magical land of Ceres, Mother Nature, Father Time, and the Demon were known as the Trinity. They were the chosen entities responsible for maintaining the balance of “good” and “bad” in the world. But, the Demon has been trapped in the core of the world, Father Time has been distantly wary, and Mother Nature is dying. The evil Human ruler, Nezril, has disrupted the balance and harmony of life by stealing power from the Trinity. He is plotting to rule the world by singlehandedly destroying the chosen entities one at a time. Nezril created a three day spell that will challenge the virtue of good versus evil, and ultimately determine the fate of Ceres. Torrent’s mind is not suppressed by the potion Nezril has forced upon all the Humans. His true love, Eluna, has become the victim of the three day spell, and her survival is the key to the perseverance of the Trinity. She will die at the end of the third day if the spell is not broken. Torrent and his best friend Birmus must find a way to save Eluna, and ultimately discover the significance of her connection to the Trinity. Torrent will need to restore lost relationships with other creatures, such as the Behemoth Giants, Pixies, Diorite Gnomes, Black Widows, and Trolls while battling beasts and outwitting vindictive foes. All the while, a mysterious spy has a secret agenda of his own. But, will Torrent find the Tree of Wisdom and discover his fate before it is too late?
Over decades of martial arts and meditation practice, Peter Ralston discovered a curious and paradoxical fact: that true awareness arises from a state of not-knowing. Even the most sincere investigation of self and spirit, he says, is often sabotaged by our tendency to grab too quickly for answers and ideas as we retreat to the safety of the known. This "Hitchhiker’s Guide to Awareness" provides helpful guideposts along an experiential journey for those Western minds predisposed to wandering off to old habits, cherished presumptions, and a stubbornly solid sense of self. With ease and clarity Ralston teaches readers how to become aware of the background patterns that they are usually too busy, stressed, or distracted to notice. The Book of Not Knowing points out the ways people get stuck in their lives and offers readers a way to make fresh choices about every aspect of their lives, from a place of awareness instead of autopilot.
