Review by hearthfirecircle
I was dissapointed that there weren't more practical suggestions for how to incorporate earth centered activism into my life. I tired of the appocalypic theology. However, her simple suggestions of spending time in the wilderness to observe and understand is extremely important and useful.
Review by earthlistener
The somewhat smaller then usual print in the book made it somewhat more difficult read, I still found the book worth it. This book by Starhawk looks into ways of reconnecting both spirituality and physically back with the earth. Earth Path is not just a book about earth based spirituality; it’s a book about how to eat, breath, and sleep earth based spiritual views throughout life. The author, Starhawk also talks about her personal experiences both on a personal level and a environmental level. This book is a long and careful read, but it a good one.
