The Fifth Sacred Thing (Maya Greenwood, #1)
Sep 04, 12
Read in September, 2012
The Fifth Sacred Thing offers an alternative vision of how the Post Carbon Era could be experienced by those who choose to live in harmony with the earth. It's an education about ancient Pagan customs which still color our lives. Poetically and fiercely written by one of the boldest earth activists of our time, it is a must read vision of our future. Starhawk used some principles inherent in the restorative justice movement to create her solution. I got to witness restorative justice in action among youth at risk. When faced with making amends after witnessing their victim' s suffering, their transformation was powerful. So it can really work in real life. The Fifth Sacred Thing entices us to live, not as plunderers, but as stewards who help to heal our planet and all who reside here. reference: http://www.restorativejustice.org/art...
