Richard Rohr Brings Us Closer to Nature and to Our "True Selves" by Joining Action with Contemplation

In the past several decades, Richard Rohr, a priest in the Franciscan order, has helped so many of us change our picture of who we humans are in the natural world.

The Heroic Journey That Returns Alt-Right Extremist Thinking to the Margins

The world as seen by Alt-Right views depletes the life that the OneEarth worldview describes. So many rightwing, dehumanizing views have come through the media coverage of the 2016 election and its results, that OneEarth people could become exhausted in critique.

Since it’s easier to speak about what’s bad than what’s good, does the following help with the 80%? It comes at the start of the last chapter in my next book, From Egos to Eden, where I describe arriving at the conclusion of a heroic journey—the heroic journey to keep Earth livable.

The Tree of Life by Hannah Cohoon, 1854How do you like the title of this blog as a title for a book? It’s what I’m planning to call my second book … unless I get a wave of comments telling me it just doesn’t work. The book isn’t likely to be published ‘til the end of the year, so you have time to weigh in.

Words for a subtitle haven’t settled in for me yet. But maybe: “Making the Heroic Journey to OneEarth Living.” The book spells out, chapter by chapter, the Great Work required of us to get beyond ego-thinking into those larger topographies of consciousness where we can act in harmony with Earth.
