As global temperatures rise and natural systems decline, humanity is being forced to confront the darkening shadow of material progress and mechanistic thinking. Meanwhile we are witnessing the dawning of a more enlightened worldview that recognizes the intimate interdependence of all forms of life and all aspects of reality. Somewhere between complete ecological breakdown and universal spiritual breakthrough lies the Middle Way, as presented in The Four Global Truths. Using the durable framework of the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism to address worldwide ecological suffering, outline its causes, anticipate its cessation, and suggest a healing pathway forward, this book also integrates many elements of Western philosophy, transpersonal psychology, deep ecology, modern cosmology, and quantum physics in describing and advocating a more holistic conception of Nature and the Cosmos.
