Soil, Soul, Society

A new trinity for our times

Satish Kumar

A new trinity for our time. We are members of a one-earth society, and caring for the earth and soul is interrelated! This is the message of Satish Kumar, the internationally-respected peace and environment activist who has been gently setting the agenda for change for over 50 years. In Soil, Soul & Society, Satish presents the new trinity for our age of sustainability. One that shares the knowledge that we ourselves are very much part of nature; that what we do to nature we in fact do to ourselves; and that the earth is soulful. In this book, he urges readers to create a new consciousness that reveres nature and explores how as a global society we need to embrace diversity and become pilgrims on this earth not tourists. To bring about change in the world we must be the change we wish to see.

In 1962, Satish Kumar made headlines around the globe when he walked from New Delhi to Moscow, Paris, London and Washington, delivering packets of peace tea to the countries leaders with the advice that, before resorting to nuclear warfare as a solution to their problems, they should sit down and have a quiet cup of tea.
Since settling here in 1973 Satish has been the guiding spirit behind a number of ecological, spiritual and educational ventures in the United Kingdom. He has founded the Small School a pioneering secondary school dedicated to bringing ecological and spiritual values into its curriculum and the Schumacher College, which educates its students in eco-consciousness and the means for effective change.
2013 sees Satish celebrate 40 years as editor of Resurgence (now Resurgence & Ecologist) the magazine which has long been the most articulate champion of ecological awareness and of a reverent way of life characterised by a philosophy of non-violence and humane spiritual values.
