Hidden Treasure - My Name is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization

Book coverMy Name Is Chellis, and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization by Chellis Glendinning

It's a funny title, and Chellis Glendinning is a fun gal, to be sure-but she's also very serious in her assertion that our relationship to the Earth bears traces of traumatic stress syndrome. Chellis was one of the pioneers in the field of eco-psychology, whose proponents recognized not only that a psychological world-view can be applied to our relationship with the planet, but that a deep connection with nature is essential for a healthy life.
