Publisher's Summary

Taking our food system back is an act of revolution. Restoring the feminine is an act of sacred responsibility. Returning to the cycles of nature is an act of love. Grounding into the soil is an act of hope.The soil, the fertile ground beneath us, holds the key to the future of our planet and our species-yet few people are aware of the critical role soil health plays in reversing climate change. 

With Grounded, Dr. Erin Yu Juin McMorrow takes us on a journey to explore the sacred interconnectedness between our soil and ourselves, seamlessly weaving the science of our broken carbon cycle and the oppression of the divine feminine into a powerful tapestry of hope and resilience.In Grounded, McMorrow guides us through the inner and outer work needed to restore the divine feminine and save our planet.

Highlights include:

  • The "brass tacks" of climate change - how everything from biodiversity loss to ocean acidification has roots in the killing of the microscopic life in our soil
  • The fertile soil is feminine - and the destruction of our earth and the feminine go hand in hand
  • Sex, birth, life, and death-how our natural cycles parallel the sacred cycles of nature

Beautifully, profoundly important read/listen

I heard Erin in a Soundstrue podcast recently talking about this book and was immediately inspired to buy it. I started with the audio version because it was the easiest format for me to listen while I walk my dog (in nature!), but plan also to buy the print version as I would like to re-read myself, mark up etc.

This book is poetry. It explores many ways to healing at an individual, community and global level in the context of the climate crisis by interweaving aspects of the body, mind and spirit. Erin links ideas of deep feminine spirituality to physical laws and pragmatic tools that can be used to address climate change and personal healing. She is honest and extraordinarily generous in the sharing of her own spiritual journey, and has left me feeling incredibly blessed to be embodied in a female body for the first time in my whole 53 years.

In Australia at the moment, many of us are exhausted and protesting angrily against the patriarchy. Erin's book speaks encouragingly to how we can enact change and begin disentangling from oppression by embracing kindness, and reconnection with others and the earth.

The only very slight disappointment (hence, 4 stars instead of 5) was that Erin did not narrate the audio version of her book. Although the narrator spoke well, I felt that the best person to read this story would be Erin herself. She speaks with strength and vulnerability, and given it is her own story, it would have been fabulous to have her take the reader into the deeper realms of possibility.

I highly recommend this book.

Content amazing, voice over robotic

Amazing to hear the content. What a journey and so timely. I am struggling with the voiceover as it sounds so robotic and lacks warmth and connection with the content. I think I would rather read the hardcopy.

Spectacular weaving of wisdom upon knowledge

Dr. McMorrow weaves a profound story of soil, woman, and divine polarity around the multiple disasters looming large over the modern world.

She argues persuasively about the power of small choices and turning inward. She offers tips on how to reconnect to the food system, our own health, and the divine mother goddess energy of creation.

This book is a poetic helix of the scientific and the spiritual, the mind and the “woo-mb” of things as it were. You can FEEL the truth of her words as she channels universal knowing from a place of humble human perspective.

One of the top books I’ve listened to in the past decade. Excellent read.

This book is incredible.

I thought I would know the majority of what this book would share, express and communicate, and while I have quite a bit of knowledge in many areas covered , I am feeling awakened. I love moments where i think I am awake and yet I then awaken to that I was asleep. When I remember and I remember what it feels like to remember. This is my now experience finishing this book 5 minutes ago. I am now thinking of all the people that I want to read this book. If your reading this review, I am clearly calling YOU to jump in.
