She describes discovering her worth and dignity through a wonderful and dirty spiritual awakening, the growth and development of those spiritual principles through engaging in labour and environment activism, and her ultimate discovery of the interdependent web of existence in a time of looming ecological crisis and late-modern capitalism.
