September/October 2010

Welcome
Embodied Wisdom

front coverThis issue of Resurgence explores the theme of Embodied Wisdom and how we can rediscover the connections between mind and body. Feature articles question what we save when it comes to biodiversity, explore the dying tradition of Transhumance in Spain, and profile inspiring Nature Pioneers. Plus, lessons from our medieval ancestors on creating a healthy work-life balance. A stunning photo feature reminds us that only those species able to adapt will survive climate change, and we launch the new Resurgence film column.
