My Name is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization
When it came out in 1994, My Name is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization quickly became a classic of the ecopsychology movement. It is a book about roots which reach back millennia to a time when humans lived in and honored the natural world. By documenting the entanglement of the ecological crisis with modern addictions, the book gives an unusual glimpse into matters of culture, history, politics, and personal consciousness; and by helping us make sense of the senseless abuses in the world today, it inspires the remembrance of new/old pathways towards healing.
