What is the relationship between addiction and the ecological crisis? How can we use the lessons of individual recovery to address our collective need to heal society and the Earth? Chellis Glendinning goes beyond the personal to the very heart of Western civilization to answer these questions, and she shows how we can use trauma recovery and deep ecology, along with the wisdom of native cultures, to reclaim our innate wholeness.
Chellis Glendinning is a psychologist, poet, social activist, and a pioneer in the field of ecopsychology. She lives in northern New Mexico, where she works for cultural preservation and environmental justice.
