We have both followed the spiritual path throughout our lives. This rich and transformative journey has blessed us with a deep relationship of love and respect with Planet Earth and the spiritual powers that guide and shape Her destiny. We have tried to distil some of the wisdom we discovered on this path in various writings, ceremonies, and talks. But we came together, quite late in our lives, at a time of unfolding planetary emergency: the toxic combination of man-made global heating with increasing ecological breakdown due to our unsustainable demands on the Earth's resources. We have been meditating on the spiritual and moral implications of this immense crisis for humanity ever since, for some fifteen years.

Writing and speaking about the climate and ecological emergency in a context of denial and inertia has proved very challenging, but in recent years we have drawn deeply on the immense reservoir of soul wisdom that is the yogic tradition of India. We owe a profound debt to the teachings of our Guru, Sri Aurobindo, in particular. Under his guidance and that of his shakti, The Mother, we are trying to move towards a new style of communication which speaks of the urgent need for humanity to make an evolutionary leap. For at this time of unprecedented planetary crisis, as our species contemplates the real possibility of near-term extinction, we are all being asked to take a leap beyond the ego, into an awakened soul consciousness.
