Today’s ecological crisis can prove to be an opportunity to wake religion up so that it moves beyond its anthropocentric agenda to a more cosmological/ecological and spirit-filled contribution to human and global history. Discussing the return of the sense of the sacred that is at the heart of all authentic religious/spiritual movements when they are true to their deepest core values. Such a movement can awaken culture and education and a sense of adventure and spiritual warriorhood that is about defending the earth and all its wondrous species.
