Conlon is an up and coming member of a group of spiritual writers calling for a more earth-centered, ecologically balanced approach to religion and everyday life. Conlon presents life as a three-dimensional journey: personal, communal and cosmic-universal. He develops the notion that spirituality must be grounded in origins, both local and global, and that any damage people do to the earth damages not only themselves, the community and spirituality, but also those of future generations.
