About the Author

Initiated by Dr. Vandana Shiva, and compiled and edited by The Global Peace Initiative of Women (GPIW). Dr. Shiva is a world-renowned environmental leader and the recipient of the Right Livelihood Award. She is the author of several bestselling books, including "Earth Democracy," and is a leader and board member of the International Forum on Globalization. GPIW is an interreligious organization that seeks to bring spiritual resources to aid in addressing critical global issues. The basis of their work is the dynamic expression of unity, emerging from the heart of wisdom of the world's spiritual traditions, and our own hearts, into a new story for the human community. An essential part of this shift is the coming into a sacred relationship with the Earth and all the living forces of the universe.
