James Wanless infuses this book with a lifetime of wisdom and experience as a counselor on both sides of the physical reality-spiritual reality divide. His exploration of sustainability touches every aspect of living, from creating a home to nurturing relationships to respecting the planet that provides for us. Success in life is not given on a silver platter; we are responsible for our own happiness and welfare and that of the planet. Skills that James calls "sustain-abilities" need to be learned and practiced, and will be reflected in our daily choices.
