about

Denise DeLuca'sRe-Aligning with Nature takes readers who are looking for radical social and business solutions on a direct and simple path to real change: nature's path. In this clear, direct, illustration-driven book, DeLuca lays out the core issues of why we are in danger due to being out of alignment with nature and how realigning with nature can save the planet.Long ago, humans lived in alignment with nature. As we discovered how to exploit nature's resources, as well as human resources, life became easier and more comfortable (especially for the few), but we became detached from nature and our own human spirit.We are now realizing that ecosystems are being destroyed, species are going extinct, and the Earth is heating up. But giant companies, governments, and other organizations are sluggish and can't respond to change fast enough.In addition to realigning what we make and how we make things with nature, we need to realign ourselves with nature and our own human nature. We need to recognize and recapture our natural paradigm.Radical? Absolutely. Hard? It's much easier than you'd think.Welcome to the 'real' world!

Editorial Reviews

'We don't see the world as it is; we see it as we are. Thoughtful people have noted this for centuries, but even if we're struck by the idea, how can we see through our deeply conditioned ways of seeing? Denise DeLuca takes up this challenge in[Re]Aligning with Nature, leading the reader through a visual de-composition of our conventional assumptions about how the world works, toward a fresh way of seeing ? the way Nature actually works. With her extensive experience teaching biomimicry to businesses around the world, she could have written a reference guide, or an organizational development handbook, but this neither. Instead, it's an easy to read book that will stay with you ? reminding you of who you really are ? an empowered part of Nature, with all of its strengths and possibilities.'Jay Harman, author ofThe Shark's Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How Nature is Inspiring InnovationIn[Re]Aligning with Nature, Denise DeLuca, one of the world's leading lights in biomimicry, invites us to join her on a richly-illustrated journey of transformation, where nature is the real world, leading those who are curious and creative into ecological thinking. Characterizing this natural paradigm as six interconnected mutually reinforcing elements of abundance, synergy, systems, resilience, curiosity and trust, this punchy and powerful manifesto, treatise and roadmap shows us how to let go of conventional thinking, helping us to re-envision our practices and culture, ourselves and our organizations and to achieve practical, long-term results. -Simon Robinson, co-author ofHolonomics: Business Where People and Planet Matter'This short book takes a great weight off our shoulders: the search for simple answers in a world suffused with change and uncertainty. By inviting us to think with - not about - the millions of other species with whom we share the earth, Denise DeLuca helps us reconnect - with living systems, and each other.'John Thackara, founder, Doors of Perception
