Jeanine Canty brings us one of those rare and priceless books that free us from conventional reality and, in so doing, illumine our own gifts for personal and collective healing. Like a clarion call to affirm the authority of our often-marginalized experience, Canty's powerful essay, along with the women's voices she has assembled here, thrill me with the challenge to see and act in new ways. The intellectual excitement as well as the emotional grounding that I find in this collection charge my life with a sense of truth and adventure.-- Joanna Macy, author, Coming Back to Life

Ecological and Social Healing is a transformative collection of women's voices whose pain, passion, and resilience are a representation of millions of women whose stories are powerful interventions that interrupt a master narrative and shape what it means to live in a diverse, inclusive, and ecological world. Their stories offer hope for ecological and social healing beginning with self, transformed into social praxis. A must read to further understand ourselves in a complex relationship with our natural and social environments. --Suzanne Benally, executive director, Cultural Survival

Ecological and Social Healing is one of the most inspiring and beautifully conceived compendium of texts by formidable women writers and scholars on the most salient and urgent issues of our troubled Anthropocene. It is a clarion call, an imperative, a spiritual crossroads for understanding and appreciating our interconnectedness and indebtedness to one another and the "more-than-human". From explications of the profound spiritual traditions of Navajo and Filipino cultures, to talk of restructuring our global economy and so much more, this compelling book teems with antidotes to living in a dark, paralyzed, wounded time. Let us gather and absorb the gnosis here and act on it. Many kudos to editor Jeanine M. Canty for moving our century forward. -- Anne Waldman, poet

We often speak of books "breaking" new ground. Ecological and Social Healing heals it. It asks us all to reconnect areas of life that have been falsely divided to (re)discover the wisdom necessary to bear witness to the pain of the societal disconnect that has led to the degradation of our collective habitat. Only from that place of honoring can true healing begin. It is more than just reclaiming the feminine and the indigenous. It is reclaiming the whole. -- Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Sensei
