We are made up of star stuff! This elegant idea became tangibly real when the liberal clergy author was handed a cottonwood twig with a tiny star hiding inside.  Gathering up fists full of these star sticks, and in collaboration with her ‘rocket scientist’ partner, she set out to reframe the human experience within its cosmic context. Here she shows how living in communion with the cosmos can affect the way we live in community, understand ourselves, and connect with the Source of all Becoming.  In the addendum, she invites readers to add to the evolving new cosmic narrative of living ‘from ashes to ashes, dust to dust, star stuff to star stuff.’


Early Praise for A Fistful of Stars

“The Great Story—humanity’s first and only globally produced, evidence-based Creation myth—deserves multiple tellings from multiple angles. Gail Collins-Ranadive draws attention to the wondrous fact that, in the words of Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, ‘We are star-stuff pondering the stars.’ In crazy and contracting times it’s more important than ever to recall the Big Picture and know that the Cosmos is our larger body. These essays are like a hand-drawn map home to our true Self.”

–Rev. Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution
“Collins-Ranadive writes with a sensitivity and urgency that this current moment requires. For to deal with such challenges as climate change requires more than mere technological solutions, but also a recognition of who we truly are—stars. Such a re-membering, she intimates, will also enrich our spiritual lives and bring forth more vibrant and sustainable communities.”

–Theodore Richards, author of Cosmosophia
