"There have been many books on ecospirituality, but few that are so lovely to look at as Joyce Rupp's The Cosmic Dance. Mary Southard's full-color art complements Rupp's ruminations on the unity of all creation. Rupp's reflections, in poetry and prose, are also enhanced…This is a well-designed and thoughtful book.
"With natural ease and abundant enthusiasm, the author takes our hands and leads us on to the dance floor where we can swing and sway to ‘the melody of the cosmic dance.’ Rupp's fine poetry and supple prose, along with Southard's fluid art, emphasize the kinship of all creation. Here is a convincing portrait of Gaia's bounty, dignity, elegance, and wisdom.Reading these paeans to trees, sky, stones, wind, rain, birds, and humankind, you will shout words of praise."
