We are slowly recognizing that the failure to understand and revere place has unleashed a toxic assault on the conditions and communities of life that are the very umbilical cord to our own human existence. This recognition cannot happen quickly enough, not only for our physical survival, but also for the survival of our human souls. Reawakening our inherent spiritual, psychological and bodily bonds to Earth and place is now a necessity. This guide, Exploring a Sense of Place, is a remarkable inner and outer compass for helping any community anywhere rediscover the ground of its being and its roadmap to any future worth living.
