There have been many books on ecospirituality, but few that are so lovely to look at as Joyce Rupps The Cosmic Dance. Mary Southards full-color art complements Rupps ruminations on the unity of all creation. Rupps reflections, in poetry and prose, are also enhanced... This is a well-designed and thoughtful book."--Publishers Weekly
"With natural ease and abundant enthusiasm, the author takes our hands an leads us on to the dance floor where we can swing and sway to the melody of the cosmic dance. Rupps fine poetry and supple prose, along with Southards fluid art, emphasize the kinship of all creation. Here is a convincing portrait of Gaias bounty, dignity, elegance, and wisdom. Reading these paeans to trees, sky, stones, wind, rain, birds, and humankind, you will shout words of praise.""--Spirituality and Health
There have been many books on eco-spirituality, but few that are so lovely to look at as Joyce Rupp's The Cosmic Dance: An Invitation to Experience Our Oneness. Mary Southard's full-color art complements Rupp's ruminations on the unity of all creation. Rupp's reflections, in poetry and prose, are also enhanced by well-chosen quotations from the pens of writers such as Rachel Carson, Annie Dillard, Henri Nouwen and Teilhard de Chardin.
