Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?In seeking answers to these fundamental questions, Peter Marshall develops a dynamic and organic philosophy for the third millennium which he calls liberation ecology. Deep, social and libertarian, it seeks to free nature, society and individuals from their existing burdens so that they can realize together their full potential.Riding the Wind presents a fresh and inspired vision which combines ancient wisdom and modern insights, reason and intuition, science and myth. It is an exciting and uplifting work on how to live well and in harmony with oneself, with others and with nature. It will appeal to all those adventurous spirits who are searching for meaning and who wish to find their rightful place within the universe.
