Product description


“Pachamama, Mother Earth, is speaking--and we are awakening to her message. The collective intelligence described in this beautiful book delves into the magic of the wisdom we hold deep inside--individually and collectively.”, John Perkins, author of The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and Shapeshifting

“At this critical, uncertain time in history, building interdependence and community resilience is crucial. To do this effectively, we need to bust out of our mental straitjackets and breathe in the freedom of collective intelligence. Dery Dyer’s exciting book is at the leading edge of how to do just that!”, Bill Pfeiffer, author of Wild Earth, Wild Soul: A Manual for an Ecstatic Culture

“We need to draw on our collective intelligence, and we need to realize that the best way of doing so is to ‘re-cognize’ the intelligence that resides in each of us. Dery Dyer’s book tells us why and how. A must-read in our critical times.”, Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D., philosopher and author of Science and the Akashic Field

“A compelling weaving of story, science, and mysticism that will help you remember who you are and the potential within and all around you. Dyer shows us how to release conditioning and misperception to see from the eyes of the heart and to root into primordial rhythms. She guides us into the mystery--to live in harmony with the Earth and the sacred circle of all life.”, Llyn Cedar Roberts, award-winning author of Shapeshifting into Higher Consciousness

The Return of Collective Intelligence is much more than a book--it is a Michelin-star mind meal at what could arguably be humanity’s last supper. Dery Dyer has dished out a veritable smorgasbord. This beautifully crafted, highly readable ride through the latest literature and research on collective intelligence brings clarity while delivering a challenge to our hearts that (she rightly tells us) our intellects alone cannot answer--how do we cultivate wisdom in this information age? Dyer skillfully offers a clearer lens through which to evaluate the usefulness and limitations of our social networks and digital media platforms. By directing us to indigenous wisdom and Great Nature as the sanctuary and source of collective intelligence, her words ring the golden truth bell in our hearts. Our collective intelligence contains the resources required to right our world through love, empathy, and connection, if we act together. This is the promise and hope provided by the title of this work. May our collective intelligence indeed return, and quickly! Dery Dyer has certainly done her part to make it so.”, Elizabeth B. Jenkins, author of The Return of the Inka, Journey to Q’eros, and The Fourth Leve

“A richly textured tapestry, artfully woven from widely disparate threads of human experience--from ancient civilizations to modern medicine, education, and quantum science. If you harbor any doubt about the essential intra-connectedness of life across space-time, and that we are designed for the sole purpose of co-creating the magical TOGETHER, Dery Dyer’s engaging narrative will relieve you of it!”, Christina Strutt, principal thinking partner at CoCreating Clarity

“I breezed through this book during the 24 hours when I was in the midst of tech-savvy people conferring about the internet’s future. My neural excitation surpassed my ability to stay grounded in wisdom about who to be and what to do! I’m endorsing The Return of Collective Intelligence as a prompt for our fieldwork-- to utilize Dery Dyer’s great integration that stretches across times and cultures. The words on these pages are a robust pod for passing, the best collection I’ve seen--but how do we choose to live, applying what we learn? Please, let’s not go back to sleep.”, Joan Lederman, steward of the Collective Wisdom Initiative

"The optimistic title of Dery’s book reflects a belief that ‘with the return of collective intelligence, the promise of an incredibly exciting new world is real. And it’s doable. In spite of the disastrous legacy humans have left up to now, there’s hope.", Geoff Ward,

"In The Return of Collective Intelligence, Dyer sets out an ambitious agenda for all of us to get out of the mental boxes that have conditioned us into believing that we are part of a mechanistic universe and embrace what indigenous wisdom and increasingly modern science tells us: that we are all part a flow of cosmic energy which transcends the ego-driven self and embodies a greater cosmic 'Self.'", -John McPhaul, ReVista: Harvard Review of Latin America --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
