“One of the devastating weaknesses of university learning, of the store of knowledge and opinion that has been handed down through academic training, has been its almost total erasure of women’s experience and thought from the curriculum… What you can learn [in college] is how men have perceived and organized their experience, their history, their ideas of social relationships, good and evil, sickness and health, etc. When you read or hear about ‘great issues,’ ‘major texts,’ ‘the mainstream of Western thought,’ you are hearing about what men, above all white men, in their male subjectivity, have decided is important.”

An excerpt from the book Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth read by Geneen Marie Haugen, who was speaking at an Earth Talk at Schumacher College. For more on the book, visit spiritualecology.org.
Geneen Marie Haugen is a wilderness wanderer, writer, scholar and guide to the intertwined mysteries of nature and psyche. Her work has appeared recently in Parabola Journal; Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth; and Thomas Berry: Dreamer of the Earth. She is exploring the awakening of what she calls “planetary imagination,” and the possible emergence of a new mode of the human that she has called Homo imaginans.

“And always in these Appalachian highlands there are reminders of those ancient seas that more than once lay over all this land . . . these whitened limestone rocks on which I am sitting . . . were formed under that Paleozoic ocean, of the myriad tiny skeletons of creatures that drifted in its waters. Now I lie back with half-closed eyes and try to realize that I am at the bottom of another ocean—an ocean of air on which the hawks are sailing.” — Rachel Carson, The Fracking of Rachel Carson, Orion Magazine
