"In a time when imperatives to save the earth rain down upon us, Stephanie Kaza offers a votive of wisdom--a path to self where we can hold the impossible dilemmas of our day in the heart of generosity, not fear; compassionate service, not guilt. Mindfully Green is a balm to the spirit, food for the long road ahead to a restored and honored planet."--Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest "Stephanie Kaza is one of the wisest, kindest, and most sensible people I know, and this book is a perfect distillation of all those qualities. It will be of immense value to anyone looking for ways to live less in opposition to the forces of nature and community (which is the way of our consumer society) and more in their embrace. I can't recommend this book highly enough."--Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy "Kaza, a biologist and professor of Environmental Studies at University of Vermont, combines Zen Buddhist practices and teachings with her forty years as an environmentalist for this guide to enlightened environmentalism, proposing a belief in the interdependence of people and nature as the genuine way to "go green" "When we come to see ourselves as part of the green web of life... we are naturally drawn to respond with compassion." In three parts, she guides readers through the principles of Buddhism as they apply to taking responsible action toward the earth: reducing harm, understanding suffering, seeing the big picture, letting go of desire and being in the moment. In parts two and three, she advises practical steps for joining in and taking action in everyday life and community. Kaza's measured, focused text and clear command of Buddhism and ecology should shore up convictions and commitment in the newly green, and help secular environmentalists connect with their spiritual side."--Publishers Weekly

Worth ReadingReviewed in the United States on 24 May 2019
This is a great book. The author has a lot of educational expertise in environmental sciences and, more importantly, a lot of wisdom in how that information applies to our lives and the lives of others. It gets to the root of the current environmental problem that we are facing and how we can look at it from different lenses, to better approach the problem in a digestible and actionable way.

disappointedReviewed in the United States on 26 November 2013
I am a green activist and a Buddha fan but there were only a few places in the book I enjoyed. I did get some names that sound like good sources and bought a few of them.

Mindfully written.Reviewed in the United States on 11 December 2012
This is really a great book. It opens so many doors as it opens your mind. It teach us not just our responsability with the Nature but ways to deal with it in a smoothy way. Stephanie Kaza put so much of her experience, so it is a gift to anyone who really cares about environment in this Earth. This is really a good gift I would like to give to many of my friends.
