Issue 336 • The January/February 2023
In this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist we explore the theme of Immersion and look at how walking for protest or pleasure, trespass or treat is always an invitation to immerse ourselves in Nature. In our themed section Nick Hayes writes about The Right to Adventure and Jonathon Turnbull explores the wild spaces of Kyiv.
In our feature story Ginny Battson dives into the life-enhancing flow of fluminism – those multiple symbiotic processes that sustain all life – and calls on us to nurture the deepest possible respect and responsibility for all life, acknowledging that we are all kin.
In the Ecologist pages Catherine Early talks to Paul Gilding, former head of Greenpeace, about why cutting methane emissions should be a priority; whilst in Connected Life Yasmin Dahnoun finds resilience and hope in a documentary film that explores the impact of climate change on the women of a pastoral community in Malawi.
In Wisdom and Wellbeing, Katherine Aalto considers gardens as a place of sanctuary to the bereaved, and Satish Kumar re-imagines a conversation between Buddha and his son. PL Henderson discovers how the transient works of sculptor Maria Bartuszová can evoke a passage of being, in our Arts and Culture section.
