Global Chorus finds a home at Rocky Mountain Books!

18 Sep

I am very pleased to announce that Global Chorus has found a home with the West Coast Canadian publisher Rocky Mountain Books http://www.rmbooks.com

Global Chorus contains contributions from some of the world’s most renowned leaders such as David Suzuki, Jane Goodall, Nelson Mandela, and Stephen Hawking, who have come together to give their honest opinion on the fate of the planet and whether or not there is still indeed hope for a healthy and reciprocal relationship with our planet earth. The individual essays are framed as a set of 365 daily meditations, thereby providing a practical means for readers to ingest this diversity of thoughts and ideas. In this way, Global Chorus is sure to be shocking in its truths and predictions, as well as inspirational and motivational in its messages of hope and optimism.

We are at a critical point in our civilization; garnering the appropriate knowledge to shield ourselves is no longer enough: we must apply it. We need to adopt a more minimalistic approach to our lives; strive for that reciprocal relationship with the planet: tread lightly. E.F. Schumacher was absolutely correct when he stated that ‘ the concentration and expansion of needs is the antithesis of wisdom; it is also the antithesis of freedom and peace’, and that ‘Ever bigger machines, entailing ever bigger concentrations of economic power and exerting ever greater violence against the environment, does not represent progress: they are a denial of wisdom.’ This sentiment brings to mind the great Law of the Iroquois that states, “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impacts of our decisions on the next seven generations.”

Global Chorus is not only going to highlight these issues; the individual essays are there to act as a guide for readers on how to build a more sustainable and mutually beneficial relationship between themselves and the planet.

This is our most pivotal hour. What we need most is to spark imaginations, to ignite our passions. We need to raise our voices in a global chorus.
