Best of Earthlight

When EarthLight Magazine ceased publication in 2005, we committed to creating a “Best of EarthLight” anthology. The response from authors, poets, artists, donors, and volunteers was enormously life affirming. “Best of” has come to mean not only the selected content, but also the act of committing our highest selves in service to a compelling project.

EarthLight: Spiritual Wisdom for an Ecological Age was published in 2007, edited by Cindy Spring and Anthony Manousos (the latter representing co-publisher Friends Bulletin).  Most of the press run of 5000 books was sold within a year.  There are fewer than 800 copies left, and to insure that they are read and appreciated instead of languishing in storage, we are offering them for the lowest possible price:  free!

The contents of the anthology were carefully chosen to be of lasting value, as relevant in 2021 as in 2007.  This is your opportunity to revisit, or meet for the first time, writings by the core visionaries for an ecological age. Together they make an impassioned plea for the human species to join the Earth Community. 

In the words of then-president of the EarthLight board Dawn Raymond and anthology editor Cindy Spring:

“We hope the anthology connects you more deeply to the core of collective consciousness shared by all beings, that continues to survive, dream, and carry on.”

Single copies of EarthLight – Spiritual Wisdom for an Ecological Age are offered free of charge with shipping and handling pre-paid (out of funds budgeted for book storage). Choose the Free Shipping option when you check out (unless you prefer expedited shipping in which case you may choose any of the other paid shipping options).

EarthLight: Spiritual Wisdom for an Ecological Age

A quality paperback of approximately 350 pages, the book is organized by sections based on the EarthLight Principles that appeared in EarthLight issue #53. In addition to the prose, poetry, and artwork that make up the majority of the book, it includes a history of EarthLight and its editors, a brief index, and a reprint of the Earth Charter: Values and Principles for a Sustainable Future.
