Ecological and social crises are caused by an economic system dependent on accelerating growth. This self-destructing political economy sets goals in terms of corporate profits. A revolution is underway as people realize that our needs can be met without destroying our world. Future generations will look back at the epochal transition we are making to a life-sustaining society, the Great Turning. It is gaining momentum, through the actions of countless individuals and groups around the world. To see this as the larger context of our lives clears our vision and summons our courage.

Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, Ph.D., is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. She is a leading voice in movements for peace, justice, and a safe environment. Interweaving her scholarship and four decades of activism, she has created both a ground-breaking theoretical framework for a new paradigm of personal and social change, and a powerful workshop methodology for its application. Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science. This work is explored in her books Despair and Personal Power in the Nuclear Age, Dharma and Development, Thinking Like a Mountain, World as Lover, World as Self, and Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World (with Molly Young Brown, New Society Publishers, 1998).
