these thoughts...something that can speak to people on all levels. Donovan, singer and musician, UK
New Renaissance is fast becoming the leading voice for the rebirth of humanity. It
recognizes the depth of our environmental, social, economic, and spiritual malaise. But,
it also sees the hope and potential of the paradigm shift and deep cultural transition
which is reshaping our world views our social institutions and our lifestyles. Bill Ellis, Editor, TRANET newsletter, Maine, USA
New Renaissance is rare in its deep and broad perspective.

I have enjoyed reading New Renaissance from its inception. It is a periodical which
addresses issues of importance to us all, and which is very readable and attractive in
form. This is a journal which every intelligent person who is concerned about the future
of this planet should read. Henryk Skolimowski, Director of the Eco-Philosophy
Centre, Michigan, USA
New Renaissance is a most important periodical. It addresses most of the burning questions
of our time, linking an ecology of mind and spirit with the ecological crisis facing the
world today. Cy Grant, Actor, author and
musician, London, UK
I like your magazine very much. It
is prepared to go beyond the standard approaches of many green magazines. It hasn't given
up the holistic perspective that inspired the green movement in its early
days. Herbert Girardet, Author and film
maker, London, UK
