The invasion into the natural world was relentless – the world hungered for more. While the wealth of corporations exploded, we contemplated our denuded landscapes. We indulged in intellectual debates but made little progress. Addicted to an economic system, demoralized and paralyzed, we lost the instinct for what we need to survive. To quit an addiction is a subversive act. This book was written from a state of urgency, a perspective of solidarity, and a purpose of liberation. The Hunger is an allegory. The character (a misfit), events, and places are used to explore crucial issues in our world. This book dissects the illusions that we create as individuals and as a culture in Western civilization. Today's dominant ideology creates conformists. If we aspire to real freedom, we need participation to rebuild values and relationships. This is about maturing and getting rid of mediocrity.
“Christa's timely ode to Human Nature works at a chthonic level, in the vibrating loam of our subconscious psyche, where we find ourselves to be umbilically connected to Gaia, our host organism - anima mundi. The effect of taking this therapeutic writing into our brain is cumulative, even shaping our dream landscapes, and it taps into that latent reservoir in our primordial psyche where transmutation of the species is slowly taking luminescent form.” - Zhiwa Woodbury, M.A., J.D. Author of “Climate Sense: Changing the Way We Think & Feel About Our Climate in Crisis.”
