Product Details


“Carolyn Baker has gifted us with a sane and courageous book that reminds us that whatever future may await us, it will be shaped by our capacity for connection. With an elder’s touch, she brings imagination, insight, and wisdom to the territory of love, extending our understanding of this essential experience far beyond our common associations. This book shows us that the only way out is through, and the only way through is together. In this late hour, Baker’s book is a primer to help us navigate the challenging times ahead in community.”
—Francis Weller, author of The Wild Edge of Sorrow: Rituals of Renewal and the Sacred Work of Grief
“Few writers today acknowledge the true extremity of the global crises upon us today, much less the fears and grief that come up when we confront our collective predicament. Exploring all the dimensions of love—with partners, children, friends and neighbors, nature, our own bodies, and more—Baker offers comprehensive counsel on preparing for the coming Collapse by developing self-awareness, communication skills, kindness, compassion, caring relationships, community, and spiritual connection.”
—Molly Young Brown, coauthor with Joanna Macy of Coming Back to Life: The Updated Guide to the Work That Reconnects
“Carolyn Baker has done a marvelous job reminding us of the central place of relationship-building in our times of dire crisis and collapse. Through her work we explore how love is the source of our wisdom and the path to experience beauty amidst chaos. With words of great acuity and clarity, Baker stirs the mind and comforts the heart.”
—Chris Saade, author of Second Wave Spirituality: Passion for Peace, Passion for Justice
“Love In The Age of Ecological Apocalypse discusses the myriad relationships humans are capable of forming and demonstrates why they are crucial at this time in our evolution. As catastrophic climate change threatens to eliminate many species, including our own, our relationships may determine how we live our lives and what we value most when we are surrounded with loss and confronted with the possibility of our own demise.” 
—Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution
“With courage and grace, Baker tackles the issue of relationships as the unraveling of civilization proceeds. Who do we become during hard times? To whom do we relate, and how? This book demonstrates a path forward during the challenging years ahead.”
—Guy R. McPherson, PhD, author of Going Dark

“Another brilliant, wise, pioneering book by Carolyn Baker. The vision she is proposing here of sacred relationship is both sobering and profoundly inspiring. Read this book and give it to everyone you know.” 
—Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide To Sacred Activism
