Publisher Comments:

A preview of the post-mechanistic, holistic world in 2020 and 2030 as well as a map of the obstacles we must overcome to get there

• Reveals how the youngest generation is seeding the shift in consciousness

• Explains how society will be reorganized into grassroots networks like those revealed by quantum physics and experienced through social media

• With contributions from futurist John L. Petersen, ex-CEO of Sanyo Tomoya Nonaka, media activist Duane Elgin, and other visionaries

The world is changing. The transition from the mechanistic worldview to one that recognizes the interconnectedness of all life is upon us. It is the dawning of the Akashic Age. The Akashic field that connects the universe is now recognized by cutting-edge science. What we know about communication, energy, and consciousness is rapidly evolving in tandem with the new quantum worldview. Many adults are consciously evolving to meet the transitional challenges at hand, while today’s youth have arrived already hard-wired with the new consciousness. Rising from the ashes of the old systems, this Phoenix generation of radical change agents is seeding our evolution and spiritual transformation, a process that will continue over the next few decades.

Authors Ervin Laszlo and Kingsley Dennis look at the chief engine of the coming changes--the growing global understanding of nonlocality--and the development of practical applications for it. They examine how the new values and new consciousness taking hold will reorganize society from top-down hierarchies into grassroots networks like those revealed through quantum physics’ understanding of energy and information waves and experienced daily by millions through social media.

With contributions from visionary thinkers such as futurist John L. Petersen, ex-CEO of Sanyo Tomoya Nonaka, media activist Duane Elgin, systems scientist Alexander Laszlo, and spiritual economist Charles Eisenstein, this book explores the future of education, spirituality, the media, economics, food, and planetary citizenship as well as the expansion of consciousness necessary to reach that future.

Review:

"Philosopher Laszlo and sociologist Dennis, both prolific authors, believe that humanity is on the cusp of a new stage in its evolution. Rather than decry societal and climatic changes that they see as a natu-ral progression, these authors celebrate the opportunity our chaotic era presents to usher in the Akashic Age: a time of global connectedness and sustainable systems. The visionary authors imagine an en-lightened world circa 2030: 'Out of the epiphany of awakening will come the increased sense and in-ner desire to develop humanitarian, ecological, and equitable systems.' The prediction is idyllic; how does humanity get there? While the authors touch on a wide variety of familiar tools, like local econ-omies and alternative energy, their writing is more inspirational than prescriptive. When they do con-sider the functionality of new systems, they don't confine themselves to one viewpoint. It's refreshing to read about efforts to revive old-fashioned homesteading skills alongside praise for technological advances like social networking and crowdsourcing. Several guest contributors — including biodynam-ic entrepreneur Marco Roveda, leadership expert Jefferson Cann and activist/author Charles Eisen-stein — round out this idealistic manifesto with expertise on a variety of subjects.

Dawn of the Akashic Age, Ervin Laszlo and Kingsley L. Dennis, Inner Traditions, 2013, $14.95
Ervin Laszlo, a prolific writer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, collaborated with Kingsley L. Dennis to write about the woeful state of our planet and its inhabitants, and how it all came to be this way. They believe, however, that we can turn the world 180 degrees around into what can be described as a utopia ��" by 2030. “If you can dream it, you can create it.” How can we know what to do if we don’t set a course and follow it? But 2030 isn’t that far away. After detailing humanity’s path to the Akashic Age and how life could be at the threshold of the Akashic Age, 13 writers from the world-shifting community contributed their thoughts on how we can go from vision to reality. It will certainly take more than a village to transform the world in this fascinating and thought-provoking call to change.
