    1. I found this book to be quite frustrating. On the one hand, the author comes across as being sincere, passionate, well-intentioned, and kind (also confused and wounded), and I totally agree with her basic premise: our modern, industrial, consumerist society is pathological (destroying the environment, engaging in wars, encouraging apathy and anomie, etc.), to the extent that many of its citizens suffer from at least some degree of dysfunction (addictions, depression, abuse, workaholism, fracture [...]


    2. One of the big themes that I took away from this book is the idea of "dissociation." Chellis talks about the similarities between dissociation and post-traumatic stress (forging a link between personal healing and the healing of our relationship with the Earth). Dissociation involves a fragmenting of what Chellis calls the "primal matrix": the interconnectedness we inherently share (as worldly beings) with the natural world as well as the psychological wholeness that constitutes personal integri [...]


    3. Chellis Glendinning is an "ecopsychologist" --- one who believes that connection to nature and living a life not too different from the kind of life humans have lived over most of the course of their 2-to-3-million-year history lie at the heart of mental health. She also believes, and spends much of this book espousing, a corollary to this belief: that modern industrial civilization actually induces mental illness. Unfortunately, the book is not very well written. Its organization is chaotic, mo [...]


    4. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Mainly, this is because of the place I am in life right now. Chellis was one of the folks who led to the creation of eco-psychology. She is a psychotherapist, a writer, and an activist for this planet.Reading this book gave me the words I had been searching for. Chellis really zoomed in and fleshed out many pieces of awareness I had begun to understand around our current world. Of course, these are still concepts, but I really admire her [...]


    5. At first I thought this book might be a little hokey but as I got into it I realized it's very well reasoned and the author makes a lot of interesting points. The main point the author makes is that the domestication of humans that occurred as a result of adopting agriculture has led to trauma, which can be seen in the addictions and neuroses of people to this day. She makes the argument that we are cut off from our "primal matrix," our natural way of being, and this is something that we need to [...]


    6. This is one of those rare books that asks the big questions, and I think Glendinning's questions and answers are the right ones. As a Shambala product the book certainly reached the New Age indigenous appropriation market, but Glendinning rises above that cohort by genuinely listening to indigenous peoples and challenging the deep sicknesses of settler society. It's a brilliant move to use the self-help format to address an entire society's irrational clinging to an omnicidal lifestyle.


    7. Chellis Glendinning grew up in a wealthy and respectable family in Cleveland. Her father was a caring doctor and a brutal child abuser. She and her brother were raped, beaten, and tortured. Her pain was swept under the carpet by the magic of dissociation — a portion of her personality split off and became unconscious. Memories of her traumatic childhood were forgotten for 40 years. Amnesia allowed her to function in the world. She earned a PhD and became a psychotherapist.One day, in a therapy [...]


    8. I was in Alaska when this book was published and it's been on my "to read" list since then. Sadly, she could have written it last week. Nothing's changed and in fact, things have gotten worse. It was interesting to read it after reading Derek Jensen's tomes. I need to look but I don't think Jensen cites this book which also correlates abusive human behavior with abusing the earth. Like Chellis, Jensen was also abused by his father in horrific ways. Jensen calls for the end of western "civilizati [...]


    9. I liked what this book is attempting to do. The recovery movement - addictions recovery, "mental illness" recovery, etc etc - is an incredibly popular facet of the self-help market. Most folks who suffer these problems of living locate the source of distress firmly within themselves. Some may find psychodynamic roots of individual dysfunction - but even that is growing less and less popular as manualized, evidenced based therapies like CBT and DBT become the standard in community mental health - [...]


    10. I liked it a lot when I read it. I should read it again as it's been years and I have forgotten much of it. Highly recommend it if you love the earth and want to heal in some personal way while helping it


    11. This a rare book written by an exceptional woman who is a holistic psychologist, a pioneer in the field of eco-psychology. "What is the relationship between addiction and the ecological crisis? How can we use the lessons of individual recovery to address our collective need to heal society and the Earth? Glendinning goes beyond the personal to the very heart of western civilization to answer these questions, and she shows how we can use trauma recovery and deep ecology, along with the wisdom of [...]


    12. I at first found myself uncomfortable with the notions in this book, because frankly who was to be told, "hey, you are dysfunctional." I also don't want to be told to discard thousands of years of my history. I really can't go back to hunting & gathering. So. The end of the book, I feel, gives a traditional therapy. Talking, having a witness, support groups, etc. There's more to healing than therapy. I suppose this book is more of a starter to healing, bringing into awareness what our real t [...]


    13. This book is terrific. It is out of publication and hard to find, but well worth locating. Glendinning does a wonderful job of tracing the separation from nature that we in modern society have experienced. She correlates this to trauma, illustrating the consequences and tolerances for things like child abuse, domestic violence, sickness, depression, and disconnection. As one of the consequences of this separation, various types of addictions develop to fill the hole that exists as a result of th [...]


    14. Thank goodness Chellis helped me give a framework to what I was waking up to in my life at the time I needed it. If you are not suffering from some form of secondary post-traumatic stress, you are not paying attention. If you don't read Chellis, you might not understand this and know what to do with it. It's difficult to live aware these days. Chellis helps.


    15. A truly excellent political/philosophical memoir that traces her own and her family's history as colonizers, the pathology of civilization, and her own rejection of it as she attempts to find a place in a samll New Mexico community. Really stellar--if you haven't been able to handle any anti-civ books for what ever reason, give this one a chance.


    16. The theory presented is very interesting and vital. Such ideas necessitate more exploration. The only thing I found lacking were any solutions, or answers to the problem of living in a trauma-laden world. Maybe that was not her goal. Otherwise a decent presentation and discourse of increasing importance. This book has me thinking in a different light.


    17. A very personal view by Chellis Glendinning that implies both metaphysical and real connections between environmental depredation and the deteriorating psychological state of humans in society. Highly recommended


    18. Leaves me with the things to think about, probably deserves a better rating but I did struggle to get through it.



    19. I cry every time I attempt to describe this book. It's a must read for those who know that something is broken and your soul yearns for nature and belonging.





    20. This is a fascinating book on the origins and ills of western civilization. Chellis, who my wife and I know, is a passionate searcher for truth and healing.


    21. Well written and well thought out, yet I couldn't get past the dissociation business, and I would set it aside and continue, but in fact, I gave it away without finishing it.


    22. I read this in 2002(?). Reading this book provided me with my first opportunity (taken?) to connect to the Earth. I must re-read.
