The spirituality lens
Continuing this post, from the Intro to the Spirituality Lens (184), e.g., from section iii:
"A spirituality lens that is more concerned with integration moves our attention away from the growth-based explanations of change and technological innovation towards integrative conceptualisations of sustainability. Hence, the particular interest in agricultural sustainability, urban gardens, simpler lifestyles and in forms of organisational sustainability that make use of such things as biomimicry and substituting biological systems for man-made technological systems. [...] Such approaches are calling for integrative visions rather than purely growth-based planning. Integrative futures seek to develop and rediscover nature-based technologies, economies and lifestyles that reclaim core human values and eschew growth-based visions of the future." (187).
