Choosing Earth, Choosing Us

A Book Review of Choosing Earth

Duane Elgin’s Choosing Earth is not for the faint of heart.
The subtitle summarizes the intent well: “Humanity’s Journey of Initiation Through Breakdown and Collapse to Mature Planetary Community”. While the text is not long in length, it is broad in reach, acknowledging and validating the concern I feel in my bones for the future of the biosphere and humanity’s place in it. Choosing Earth is a brave journey, exploring the collapse of the world we have constructed over the past ten-thousand years and our potential for transformation into a mature species. This exploration is done from a state of trust, and the assumption that while the collapse of our current destructive way of life is inevitable, a future in which we collectively move through that collapse can be a conscious choice.
