Humanity’s Initiation into Planetary Adulthood
For several decades, a growing chorus of experts have spoken of the urgent need to shift to a new “operating system” for planet earth. The burning question is how? The Global Heart Awakens responds by offering a masterful prophetic vision—indeed, a bold new myth for our time. By digging deep into the past, and ranging far ahead into our promising future, Anodea Judith is able to call out our present ordeal: We are an immature species undergoing a profound global initiation into adulthood. This collective rite of passage, Judith shows, will unravel our world system based on the love of power and deliver us to one based on the power of love.
Just Ahead: An Awakened Global Heart
But what brought us to this turning point? And what will it take to mature as a species? To find out, Judith guides us on a tour de force journey. She illumines each passing era of human history with a rich variety of analytical schemes, including archetypal psychology, gender “valences,” and the seven levels of the chakra system—whose center and goal is the awakened heart. Judith concludes with a compelling vision of how the emergent organizing principle of the power of love will integrate the divorced polarities of masculine and feminine and heaven and earth—resulting in an exciting new synthesis that’s steering us toward harmony and wholeness.
An earlier version of this book won the coveted Nautilus Award in Social Change in 2007. This new edition offers a thoroughly updated analysis of where we stand and points to the newest solutions now emerging. Read this book and join Anodea Judith on an unstoppable journey to planetary adulthood.
