For this month's post, I'd like to share a new book project I've been working on for the last several years. I have a new book coming out: The Heart of Sustainability. This book completes the set of my two previous books (The Sustainability Revolution and Thriving Beyond Sustainability) by focusing on the human dimension of the sustainability movement. I'm looking at the role of personal development and the importance of human/nature connection in order to successfully deal with the global challenges that we face. As the consciousness and technological revolutions flourish, what is our role? What are the qualities of leadership and activism that we need? And how are individuals and organizations from around the world implementing mindfulness, compassion, empathy and creativity into their organizations. This book bridges the world of personal growth and sustainability and asks us to look within ourselves to see what calls us and inspires us to make change and create a better world.
The Heart of Sustainability will be published by New Society Publishers in the Fall of 2015, and I'm looking forward to sharing more about it as the time nears.
