About the book: Reclaiming the Sacred draws on the work of thousands of psychologists and economists, cosmologists and activists, saints and poets. It explores what science reveals about the things that most nourish human well-being—and some that do not, most notably money and possessions. It explores the profound consequences materialism has for each of us and the world, most critically the global climate disaster. And then it goes beyond all of that, diving into the very heart of ourselves and the world, taking us on an exhilarating journey—both scientific and mystical—of reclaiming the sacredness of ourselves and this gorgeous world.About the author: Jeff Golden has been teaching and writing about these topics for over thirty years, most recently at Vassar College. He was a Fulbright Scholar in sustainable development and a recipient of the State Department’s Millennium International Volunteer Award. He is a prison reform and animal rights activist, and has headed several nonprofits promoting social justice, sustainability, and international education. A native of Idaho, he resides in the Mohicanituk Valley in New York, with his children, the river, and the stars.
