Do you find yourself feeling like the paradigm within which you (and those around you) are existing is just not working for you? Do you feel like humanity (particularly American humanity) is due for a major shift of perspective and way of being? Do you need a life that feels more liberated, more authentic, more balanced, more connected, and more creative? If so, this book may be for you. Drawing from studies of various spiritual traditions and religions, the fields of psychology, Buddhist psychology, and Spiritual Ecology/Transpersonal Psychology, and using humor and personal stories, the author weaves a tapestry of perspectives on what is not working, how and why we arrived here, and how to shift our individual and collective way of being to something more holistic and fulfilling at the individual level, and harmonious at the environmental and collective human levels.
