A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, Web sites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for
researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called “References” or “Works Cited”
depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the
bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.).
An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes
a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Depending on your project or the
assignment, your annotations may do one or more of the following.
Summarize: Some annotations merely summarize the source. What are the main
arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If
someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? The length of your
annotations will determine how detailed your summary is.
Assess: After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it. Is it a useful source?
How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? Is the information
reliable? Is this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this source?
Reflect: Once you’ve summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into
your research. Was this source helpful to you? How does it help you shape your
argument? How can you use this source in your research project? Has it changed how
you think about your topic?
Your annotated bibliography may include some of these, all of these, or even others. If you’re
doing this for a class, you should get specific guidelines from your instructor.

Ashley, P. (2007). Toward an Understanding and Definition of Wilderness Spirituality.
Australian Geographer, 38(1), 53-69.
Ashley examines wilderness spirituality and nature-based spirituality in this
article. Wilderness spirituality, he says, has numerous meanings for various
people across the world and through time, which leaves the concept vague for
those recently introduced. Because of this, a sample of the general population
(2X) and a group of experts (X) were surveyed by associated words, phrases, and
feelings with their experience with the spiritual side of the wilderness. The
aboriginal culture of the Tasmanian was an example that Ashley provided of
traditional wilderness spirituality, and our interconnectedness with nature. He
shows how nature and the wilderness offer people a sense of meaning and
connection with spirit, each other, and their place in the web of life.

[these authors] found that percentages of these youth have engaged in selfharming behaviors; violence; substance use and abuse; criminal behaviors which
resulted in arrests; recently experienced a traumatic event; are currently on
medications for depression, ADHD symptoms, bipolar disorder and
antipsychotics. The authors maintain that these adolescents also exhibited higher
than average intelligence and academic achievement.
Berry, T. (1988). The Dream of the Earth. San Francisco, CA: Sierra Club Books.
This book contains a collection of essays written by Thomas Berry explaining the
current state of the planet and the role we, as humans, play in it. He describes the
physical effects of pollution and overpopulation on the earth’s natural resources,
and our internalized effects of consumerism and technology addiction. Berry also
explains the industrial era’s profound influence on our progress as a civilization as
providers and consumers. It is this learned overconsumption he says that has
caused adverse effects on our planet as well as our psyches. He offers an
enlightened perspective on how to transform this unsustainable way of life to one
that is organic, connected with the rest of the universe, and has less impact on the
environment. Berry’s essays provide a formula for environmental change, which
should be utilized by everyone so that we can reconnect to our true roots as
species interconnected with the rest of existence.
Capra, F. (1996). The Web of Life: A New Scientific Understanding of Living Systems.
New York, NY: Anchor Books.
In The Web of Life, Capra illustrates the patterns and construction of living and
nonliving complex systems through dialogue, historical evolution, and scientific
examples. He places great emphasis on the complex parts of the whole system
because of their interdependence on each other, their interconnections. The whole
is greater than the sum of its parts and it is the whole that decides the action of the
parts. Understanding the system as a whole as well as the individual parts and
properties that make the system is the purpose of this book. Using Systems
Theories, Chaos Theory, Gaia Theory, and many others, Capra explains all forms
of complex systems such as ecosystems and social systems.

physically into a person’s life. The authors unveil the various methods being employed
out there in the world by reading the different articles, understanding where these
professionals have found the place that grounds and centers them, and by witnessing the
many different careers available in this field.
Collins, M. (2010). Spiritual Intelligence: Evolving Transpersonal Potential Toward
Ecological Actualization For a Sustainable Future. World Futures, 66, 320-334.
This article explains the self-destruction that we, as a society have brought upon
the earth and all of its inhabitants, while also explaining how we might overcome
that destruction. Collins tells us that we need evaluate ourselves from a personal
to a transpersonal level of thinking and feeling, so that we may actualize our full
potential as individuals and as a society. His main argument is that we need to
change our self-destructive behaviors in order to realize a state of harmony
amongst ourselves and nature (nonduality), this he expresses through the
“development of intelligences”, aka, actualizations. Collins also speaks a great
deal about the Akashic Field as formulated by Ervin Laszlo, which provides a
transpersonal perspective on how to transcend this self-destructive thinking.

Pro-Ecological, Frugal, Equitable and Altruistic Actions that Promote Subjective WellBeing. Human Ecology Review, 2(18), 95-104.
The authors of this article explain that humans who view the world from an
anthropocentric perspective behave in ways that are detrimental to the planet and
its inhabitants. These behaviors, they say, include such things as consumerism,
globalization, waste (i.e., food, garbage, recycling), pollution, and contamination.
However, people who practice sustainable living behaviors such as being frugal,
or in other words, maximizing what they already have in terms of food, clothing,
and other materialistic goods; altruism, which is engaging in behaviors for the
benefit of someone else; and equitability, which is to view, treat, and share all
resources with the community equally without bias regardless of demographic,
race, age, etc.
Cortright, B. (1997). Psychotherapy and Spirit: Theory and Practice in Transpersonal
Psychotherapy. Albany, NY: SUNY Press.
In this book, Cortright examines the history and conception of Transpersonal
Psychotherapy. He explains that by asking the question, “Who am I?” we are
confronted with two different answers: an ancient spiritual answer, which is “I am
a spirit, a soul”, and a modern answer, which is “I am a self, an ego”.
Transpersonal psychotherapy, he says, is the integration and psychotherapeutic
practice of these two modes of thought. The importance of consciousness, in all
states, is explored while Cortright introduces and describes the approaches of Ken
Wilber, Carl Jung, Hameed Ali, Roberto Assagioli, and Stanislav Grof.
Davis, J. (2000). We Keep Asking Ourselves, What is Transpersonal Psychology?
Guidance and Counseling, 15(3), 3-8.
In this article, Davis introduces Transpersonal Psychology, what it is and what its
relationship to spirituality is. Davis speaks of the main theme being nonduality
and how that is also used in other cultures’ spirituality. He also provides an
overview disclosing information about the “grandfathers” James, Grof, Jung, etc.
as well as transpersonal psychology’s practical methods, which are applied in
Davis, J. (1998). The Transpersonal Dimensions of Ecopsychology: Nature, Nonduality,
and Spiritual Practice. The Humanistic Psychologist, 26(1-3), 60-100.
Davis reviews ecopsychology, using his novel description, definition, and
summary of “nonduality”. His explanation is that nonduality is essentially when
the separation from Self and Nature occurs, or when the great Mystery no longer
exists. Nonduality, though an original term, is a fairly well-known concept, at
least in this field; the notion that human beings are no different/separate from the
earth than other flora and fauna and that breaking that connection will generate
severe issues within the community is the foundation of ecopsychology. Davis
puts great emphasis on the human condition and how it perpetuates nondual
destruction by widening the separation gap between human beings, the earth, and
one another. Nonduality, he says, is the act of re-establishing the lost or severed
relationship we once had to nature, the understanding that we are nature.
Davis, J. V. (2011). Ecopsychology, Transpersonal Psychology, and Nonduality.
International Journal of Transpersonal Studies, 30(1-2), 137-147.
Davis states that the human-nature relationship is the foundation of all our
negative and positive experiences and consequences. He goes on to say that,
viewing ourselves as separate from nature and behaving in concordance with that
perspective with such actions of forest degradation, overconsumption of natural
resources, tearing down parks and fields, etc. is the cause of humanity’s suffering
as a whole. To accept this human-nature relationship and take responsibility for
our part in it, explains Davis, will heal both humans and the planet. What Davis is
interested in, in this article is how self-identification means viewing the human
species in relation to its place in nature, and the universe and nonhuman world as
a whole. Indeed, self-identifying with nature as home and self and behaving
accordingly free from self-interest and separateness is what Davis has termed
Davis, K. M. (2009). Ecotherapy: Tribalism in the Mountains and Forest. Journal of
Creativity in Mental Health, 4, 273-282.
In this article, Davis focuses on ecotherapy, which is the application of
ecopsychology into therapeutic practice. The main premise he makes is that
humans are not separate from the rest of the earth. Humans, animals, plants,
natural resources, and the rest of the universe are all interrelated; all threads in the
same web of life, if you will. He says that when one part of the web is damaged or
negatively affected, such as the earth’s natural environments, everything else in
the web is affected, too. Davis maintains that we are connected to the earth
psychologically, spiritually, and emotionally so we need to treat the earth and all
its inhabitants as part of us, our family in order to bring about true healthy living.
