This book bears us on eagles' wings into the vault of the heavens and plunges us into the hidden depths of the soul. As the climate crisis alerts us to the state of the planet, so we look into our soul. We see how the Bible and classic spiritual writers use arresting meteorological imagery to describe both the discovery of the Divine and the condition of humanity. We explore a rich and diverse vocabulary, archetypal, universal, and primal, enabling us to describe the movements of the soul. These images and metaphors help us express what is going on in our spiritual lives as we learn the skill of reading the climate of our soul.
Attentiveness to the ecology of the soul leads to a sharper perception of the environmental issues facing our planet. This book helps us to look differently at our turbulent world within the interplay of microcosm of soul and macrocosm of climate, celebrating a sacramental approach to the universe, to the elements, and to ourselves.
