Nature is a spiritual teacher for millions of sensitive souls. In the great outdoors, we open ourselves to be empowered, chastened, and renewed. This is the latest volume in the New Consciousness Reader series. In this vibrant and varied anthology, editor Cass Adams has brought together 60 essays, stories, poems, and interviews by wilderness advocates, ceremonialists, teachers, and nature guides. They speak forcefully about the spirit of place, the value of vision quests and ritual renewal, the meaning of encounters with wild animals, and the challenges of deep ecology and ecopsychology. Among the contributors are Terry Tempest Williams, Joan Halifax, John Daniel, Brenda Peterson, John Seed, and others. The Soul Unearthed concludes with an extremely helpful appendix of wilderness resources.
