Healing Our World website
Healing Our World: A journey from the darkness into the light, challenges the reader to question just about every assumption they have about how the Earth works and what our impact is on it. Throughout the book are examples of how our disconnection from the natural world and from the rhythms of the Earth have created a distance between humans and the planet of their birth. Because of that distance, we don't think twice about our damaging and destructive consumption that is rapidly reducing the planet's life support capacity. Activists everywhere are heeding the call to action, hearing, as Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hahn says, "the sound of the Earth crying." Click here to learn more about or to buy the book or here to visit the website.
We at believe in a clean environment AND a healthy economy. We believe in the triple bottom line of People, Planet, and Profits. The products, companies, and technologies found here are united by the common work of providing utility and beauty without overburdening Earth's critical-life support systems.

We created the ECOLOGICINDEX as a benchmark of the Ecologic Economy. We believe that the companies represented by the ECOLOGICINDEX might just change the world.

Bioneers/Cultural Heritage Institute's Mission:

  • To cultivate and disseminate environmental solutions to national and global audiences, educating, inspiring and equipping people toward effective action.
  • To develop and spread model economic strategies for ecological agriculture, environmental restoration and community self-reliance that conserve biological and cultural diversity, and strengthen traditional, indigenous and restorative farming practices.
  • To promote understanding of the human-nature relationship and revitalize our cultural and spiritual connection with the natural world.
  • To operate as an entrepreneurial not-for-profit organization with a broad base of support and maximum fiscal self-reliance.
  • CHI conducts public education in these areas through conferences, workshops, and the media.
