Inspired by physicist and environmental leader Dr. Vandana Shiva, this collection of essays draw on the wisdom of ancient and modern traditions to remind readers of the profound sacredness of the seed--how in its purity, it is the source and renewal of all of life. For centuries the planting of the seed in the earth not only nourished humanity, but also symbolized the mystery of life and the journey of the soul. Yet, modern culture has begun to lose an appreciation of the primal meaning of the seed. Tenderly created from original writings of mystics, shamans, monastics, and priests, and featuring vibrant photos, this book bears witness that the Earth is alive, and establishes that only by working together with the earth--with its wonder and mystery--can we help in its healing and regeneration and once again bring meaning back into the world.

Vandana Shiva, recipient of the Right Livelihood Award and trained atomic physicist, challenges the current agribusiness paradigm so destructive to nature. She lays bare the moral bankruptcy and scientific misinformation creating the smokescreen to support genetic engineering as the answer to global population increase (as currently practiced). If you have never heard her speak in person, check out her videos on Youtube and read this book. Neil DeGrasse Tyson should do his homework on this issue before doing further damage to his fine career.
