"A practical guide to help us discover the true meaning of being human. This book presents seven carefully constructed chapters, referred to as contemplations. They each consist of four integrated parts, a picture, a poem, writing and a practical exercise. Illustrating the book in this way, Ballabon achieves a light and gentle balance in allowing the reader to think about why we are living in this world. 'Why is the Human on Earth?' is recommended for anybody who's ever questioned why we are here." (KINDRED SPIRIT magazine).

About the


Philosopher, environmentalist and author, Mark Ballabon has been teaching and writing about personal and spiritual development for over two decades. His non-fiction titles include 'Why is The Human on Earth' and 'Courting the Future: preparing for a different world', which features a collection of essays which explore the future in a visionary and practical way - addressing climate change in the human and on the planet.

During the past four years Mark has been developing an original series of books for teen readers. The first book in the series, ‘Home: My Life in the Universe’ will be published on April 2022 with illustrations by Grant MacDonald. It is 14 year old Leah’s search for her place in the world. It also encourages reflection on important contemporary issues including bullying, self-belief, body image and the climate crisis.

Mark lives in London with his wife but regularly gives talks and workshops to audiences in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, North America and the Middle East.
