BACKGROUND “[W]hat we face in the West today is not an ecological crisis, nor a crisis of economics, nor a crisis of structure. It is a crisis of the mind. A crisis of the stories we tell ourselves, of the position we wish to give ourselves in the creation, and of the purpose that we give to our existence” (Palmer, 1992, cited in Gladwin et al., 1997, p. 245).
