Spiritual Dimension of Sustainable Development

February 18th, 2008 by Dave · No Comments

The latest issue of the Solidarity, Sustainability, and Non-Violence newsletter is out, and it addresses the Spiritual Dimension of Sustainable Development. This is a point of view that does not often come up in my classes, and might strike a chord with some students.

I particularly liked the article Spirituality of Spiritual Development. It opens with two quotes from Carl Jung:

“Consumerism is a surrogate for God.”
“The only thing we have to fear on this planet is man.”
