Schumacher College, based near Totnes in Devon, England, opened its doors in the early 1990s and is now an internationally-renowned centre for transformative learning on all aspects of sustainable living. James Lovelock led the first course on Gaia theory. A host of visionary thinkers has followed, including mathematician and biologist Brian Goodwin, who died in 2009. This book is a realisation of his vision for Schumacher College to publish a collection of essays on sustainable solutions to the current global crisis. Themes include the importance of education, science, Transition thinking, economics, energy sources, business and design, in the context of philosophy, spirituality and mythology. The contributors include Satish Kumar, Jules Cashford, Fritjof Capra, Rupert Sheldrake, James Lovelock, Peter Reason, Gideon Kossoff, Craig Holdrege, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Colin Tudge, Nigel Topping and many others. This book is essential reading for anyone concerned about the future of our society and the environment.

'I loved reading this book, and it is one that I will certainly be returning to further ... This book is absolutely jam packed with ideas and solutions, covering education, the environment, systems thinking and complexity, design, visioning and story-telling, transition and Transition Towns, agriculture, economics, business organisation, and deep ecology.' -- Simon Robinson, The Transition of Consciousness blog 'In many ways, this volume is a companion to the SMN's New Renaissance and serves as an excellent introduction to the ecological worldview and its implications.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific Medical Network Review 'Grow Small, Think Beautiful is a poignant read which leaves one with a lingering sense of hope ... we are gently guided to share [the authors'] sense of awe at the omnipresent natural harmony evident at the heart of the world's eco-systems ... The culmulative effect of this collection of heartfelt essays is that the reader is motivated actively to involve himself as part of the solution, not only mentally and physically but ultimately spiritually.' -- Temenos Academy Review
