Does the food you eat nurture you spiritually?
It was thousands of years ago, as civilization emerged and societies formed by humans strengthened, that our connection to the food we eat began to weaken. Now there is a movement afoot to reclaim that connection. Sometimes called eco-spirituality, sometimes called spiritual ecology, increasing numbers of people are concerned about how their food is grown and how that growing process affects the earth.
Jim Ewing takes us through the history of agriculture on planet earth. He shows us where we lost sight of the interconnectedness of all our human activities, and where that interconnectedness was properly attended to. The book contains a wealth of information both practical and spiritual as he makes the case for returning to a mutually-nurturing model for society’s use of earth’s resources.
Ewing practices what he preaches, living on a small farm with his wife, as he works for change in the food industry. Everything you’ll want to know about putting the spirit back into dinner can be found within the pages of this book. It is a call to action, backed up by real-world information and ideas. It’s a valuable addition to any reference library, and will live happily on your kitchen shelf next to the cookbooks. SHOP FOR THE BOOK
