   -  presenting nature in the light

              of spiritual ecology



The Earth Vision project presents A Calendar of Nature and Soul  - a week by week journey through the spiritual ecology of the year.  52 chapters coincide with the weeks of the year, on this seasonal foray that is interwoven with Rudolf Steinerís Calendar of the Soul.

          One of the key dynamics in the spiritual ecology of the seasonal progression through the year is found in the counterpoint of the human soul with the outer manifestation of nature.  During the summer, when the world of nature is so outwardly active and productive, the human soul is most asleep.  The soulís dreamy reverie is akin to the spirit of the Earth in summer.  Steiner describes the outward flourishing of nature during the summer as ďthe Earth dreaming into the heights.Ē

          Conversely, in the winter the human soul, and the spirit of the Earth, are most awake.  This is why the schools year so aptly runs form September to May, with a break for the summer.  Intellectual activity is most suitable during the cooler months.

         In the Calendar of Nature and Soul, these kinds of considerations are explored and interwoven with the outward events of nature, as well as key biographical events of the authorís soul life.    

Visit the Earth Vision project for this, and other e-books in the vein of spiritual ecology, as well as articles that address environmental themes from a deeper perspective than the conventional media has to offer.
