There is much excitement here at Stoneham Towers and hearty congratulations are due to my very clever mother in law Eleanor Stoneham whose first book, Healing this Wounded Earth with Compassion, Spirit and the Power of Hope, has just been published by O Books. A powerful foreword is written by Dr Iain McGilchrist, author of The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. This is a handbook for the restoration of the earth and society to sustainable health and a brave response to environmental damage, violence and reckless profit seeking. Eleanor examines the strength giving elements of vulnerability and the possibilities of personal responsibility and new ways of living in society, economy, medicine, art and faith.
For those who look at the world and find it wanting but who are not hidebound by cynicism, this may be just the read for you. It can be found on Amazon or at O Books. Eleanor’s website can be found here and her excellent blog is here.
