Infinite Generosity

One of my favourite stories is in this telling of a conversation between cosmologist/physicist Brian Swimme and geologian/cultural historian Thomas Berry: On another occasion, Brian was passionately telling Thomas, over a cup of coffee in a café, that he had figured out the source of the problem in industrial society and what needed to be […]

PaGaian Cosmology Preface

The term “PaGaian” requires some explanation: it expresses a reclaiming of the term “Pagan” as meaning a person who dwells in “country”, yet with “Gaian” spliced in, it expresses a renewed and contemporary understanding of that “country”. “Gaia” is a name for humanity’s Habitat, an ancient yet new name, which I understand to include whole […]
