We have become an urbanized consumer culture that lives increasingly hooked and dependent upon technology and mechanization. The quiet wisdom that comes from rural life and religious or indigenous practice that plants us in the soil of the earth and her peoples, is often run over in the frenetic pace of our lives.
Richard Louv from his new book, “The Nature Principle”
“The future will belong to the nature-smart … those individuals, families, businesses and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.”
