Many people still think of gender as "just a women's issue" -- signaling that they don't consider it an important social issue. Empirical research shows that what is considered normal for the roles and relations of women and men actually affects everything in a society -- from families, education and religion, to politics and economics. Dr. Eisler's research, writing and speaking, documents this, helping us connect the dots.

"Spirituality has become the word of the hour. But what is spirituality? What does being spiritual mean? For me, as for many others, spirituality means feeling at one with that which we call the divine. But when I think of the divine I . . . think of our own most evolved qualities: our profound human capacity for empathy, for love, our striving for justice, our hunger for beauty, our yearning to create. I think being spiritual means being ethical and, in the true sense of the word, moral." ~ Riane Eisler
Creatures of the Earth are being squeezed out by ever more people. Holes in the ozone layer let in cancer-causing radiation. Global warming is melting our polar ice, threatening our coasts. Pollution fills our seas, our air, and our food, and every one of these problems is of our own making. It is clear that our relationship with nature is terribly out of balance.
