Manifesto for the Noosphere is intended to inform and prepare humanity for the nature and magnitude of this shift. Argüelles brings in the Mayan long-count calendar, radical theories on the nature of time, advanced states of consciousness, and the possible intervention of galactic intelligence. He carefully details the role of the noosphere in relation to other planetary strata (hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere) as well as the history and nature of the biosphere-noosphere transition and the intermediary phases of the technosphere and cybersphere.
What Comes After Money? Essays from Reality Sandwich on Transforming Currency & Community
Edited by Daniel Pinchbeck & Ken Jordan
In this anthology of essays drawn from the popular web magazine Reality Sandwich, 20 visionary thinkers explore the roots of the modern economic crisis and propose diverse solutions: instituting local currencies; creating reputation or gift economies (based on historical and contemporary); introducing spirituality into the equation; and many more.
Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, & Society in the Age of Transition
By Charles Eisenstein
Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme—but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
The Electric Jesus: The Healing Journey of a Contemporary Gnostic
By Jonathan Talat Phillips
After a devastating loss as countercultural activist, Phillips embarks on a mystical journey involving underground ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, prankster spirit guides, shape-shifting extraterrestrial at Burning Man, and miraculous energy healings that exposes him to an international movement trailblazing visionary ways to help our planet in crisis. He uncovers the lost rites of the Christian mystery schools and secret “electric” messages for personal and global transformation.
The Secret Tradition of the Soul
By Patrick Harpur
Harpur argues that answers to life’s most difficult questions—the meaning of life, the nature of self, and the existence of an afterlife—can be met by a visionary tradition that runs through Western culture, from Greek philosophy and Renaissance alchemy to Romantic poetry and modern depth psychology. This hidden tradition, according to Harpur, places our soul at the center of the universe and emphasizes imagination, the collective unconscious, and an “otherworld” or afterlife; above all, it teaches us how to know ourselves and how to recover a sense of meaning largely lost today.
Written in a warm, open style recalling that of Eckhart Tolle in The New Earth, Drda integrates elements of Western philosophy, transpersonal psychology, deep ecology, modern cosmology, and quantum physics to get at the heart of worldwide ecological suffering. In the process he encourages a responsible and joyful - and ultimately healing - participation in this critical moment in life.
EVOLVER EDITIONS, and imprint of North Atlantic Books, presents leading voices of the transformational movement, the new spiritual counterculture that explores humanity's most visionary potential and tangible, prgamatic steps we can take to access it.
