ENVISION THIS: Embracing a deeper connection with the living world will help us to heal the planet

Ken Worthy calls us to share this lofty yet crucial vision. His book, Invisible Nature: Healing the destructive Divide between People and the Environment, presents a new explanation for why environmental crisis proliferates under our noses and against our will. Ken reveals how the profound psychological dissociation of people from nature is rooted in history, philosophy, and material life. According to Vandana Shiva, “He also reveals how association and connection can help heal the planet and transcend eco-apartheid—the separation of humans from nature—by making us aware of how our everyday life choices impact the fragile web of life and how we can take small steps to make big shifts.” In our interview he will answer the question that led him to research and write the book: What accounts for the strange contradiction between mainstream desires for healthy environments and modernity’s continuous path of environmental destruction?
