Can a Caterpillar become a Zen master? What is 'inscape'? Can meditating over the ecology of the mind create a paradigm shift which can save the ecology of the planet? In this newsletter we present an excerpt from an interview of James Thornton, author and an eco-activist turned ecopsychologist. Read it in our newsletter. At VK-nardep we try to bring you various perspectives on saving the planet from across the cultures of our earth. We believe these varied tones and tunes sing the same song of love and affection to Mother Earth and help us explore and innovate our own ways of serving the planet and her countless communities of humans and non-human beings who share her womb.
