Editorial Reviews


"Navigating the Collapse of Time stands apart from other metaphysical works about this timeframe transition. Simply put: David Cowan lives from a dimensional place of synergizing all theories and academics around this galactic transition. A treat awaits the reader. While experiencing the beauty of David's word pictures that warmly download the reader with energy, it's as if a catapulting occurs into self discovery as it relates to past, present and future time and planetary evolution with humor and fun." -Carol Calvert, Share the Light Community

"With David Cowan's book, Navigating the Collapse of Time, we get a fascinating picture of the transition period that is approaching for the human race. What kind of a transition it will be, and what nature and direction the illusory dream of time and space will take, is up to us, depending on how we choose our thoughts. I highly recommend this enjoyable page turner." -Gary Renard, the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe

"I have known Dave for many years, and think highly of his work, both as an educator and an author. Navigating the Collapse of Time is no exception. Dave provides an educated and insightful look at what is transpiring in the world at this time. He has done a masterful job of pulling together so many possibilities and making sense of them all, helping us to navigate an uncertain but exciting future. Solid information coupled with wit and humor makes this book a 'must read.'" -Bonnie Bogner, Spiritual Teacher and Facilitator

"This hitch-hiker's guide to the here and now presents difficult truths and very practical advice." --Linda Lake, astrologer

"David Cowen has brought the question of extra dimensional contact down to earth, with a style that cuts straight through to the heart - like a metaphorical sword of truth. It is refreshing to find an author who can create new perspectives on the question of this age of transition, when the wisdom from higher dimensional beings speaks to our souls of all that lies before us." -Patricia Cori, author/channel of the Sirian Revelations

"David Cowan has an innate ability to make the complex and confusing easier to read and understand. Navigating the Collapse of Time is quite a remarkable beautifully-crafted textbook for learning about our true history and preparing humanity to move into the next chapter of human existence. What David shares with us has a ring of truth that resides in our inner being--a truth that speaks to our heart." --Dr. John Gilbert, Presiding Archbishop of the Universal Gnostic Fellowship

"I am a shamanic practitioner who has been both a scholarly and experiential student of the extraordinary period of change and transformation we're experiencing prophesied by indigenous shamans from the Q'ero, to the Hopi, Huichol and Mayan. Navigating the Collapse of Time has codified a tremendous amount of information and insight with a clarity that is also extraordinary. Dave is a tremendous teacher, a weaver of the mysterious threads of consciousness that frequently escape capture. I highly recommend this unifying piece of work." -Kevin Johnson, Shamanic Teacher

Format: Paperback
Amidst all the doomsayers and fear-mongers around the 2012 predictions, David Ian Cowan's book Navigating the Collapse of Time gives us a different and "enlightened" perspective on what the "end of time" really means.

According to Cowan, ego-death/spiritual awakening is the name of the game and the concept of time is an ego-based phenomenon which is on its way out. He has done an impressive job of describing the changes that some of us are already experiencing, as well as offering suggestions and encouragement for us to begin moving in the direction he has compelling reasons to believe we are going anyway. (Moving from duality to the Oneness that we really are.)

Whether or not we will have the global enlightenment he sees for us, since reading his book I feel substantially liberated from my own fears around 2012. Firstly, because I really heard him when he repeatedly mentioned the fact that fear is of the ego and keeps us in its grip; Secondly, because living in fear is not fun on any level and I'm one of the people he talks about who is fed up with suffering; and thirdly, because even if the external events don't go as he is saying to create this massive shift, if it's true that we create what we see, why would we want to see Armageddon?

It's interesting to me that this is the second book I have read this week (see 2012: A Clarion Call by Nicolya Christi) that can inspire us and help us shift me into a place of confidence and empowerment around the challenges to our world.

Perhaps as 2012 approaches (and Cowan tells us the changes are already in progress and a huge shift may occur in October,) we are being given what we need to position ourselves to both meet--and help bring forth--this amazing transformation.

What an awesome book. Still on page 63, after 2 weeks of reading and thinking. There is plenty of substance, depth, and humor, but the author never feels the need to show off his wisdom by over-complicating the narrative... it is written in a style that welcomes inner reflection on the fascinating ideas that are surfaced. I'm not hanging my hat on each and every word, but rather riding the resonance, with focus, like a kid on a roller coaster. This one magically jumped off the bookstore shelf into my hands, as do so many well-written books with a loving & positive intent.

Format: Paperback
Since discovering this book purely by chance last week I have been unable to keep my eyes off of its pages. Although much of the material contained is already very familiar to me David Cowan posseses the great ability to somehow re-introduce the facts with such clarity and fine order that makes The Collapse of Time nothing short of true inspiration.
His humorous flow and humble warmth make this title a joy to read, providing us with the perfect companion through our current transition.
David makes great sense of our seemingly ever maddening world and manages to keep the focus positively upbeat whilst firmly highlighting the unfaltering need for us all to learn the art of true forgiveness. For me at least this is a hand book to the ages, a must have for all those drawing breath.
I cannot recommend this title highly enough and have not stopped speaking of it since it came into my world.
If you are the type to remain skeptical to all things meta-physical I would advise that you to read this book with an open mind and open heart as truth speaks for itself and this is an undeniable presentation of the truth.
I can't wait to see what he delivers next. Thank you so so much.

Format: Paperback
An amusing and instructive read, particularly reading it after 2012. Amusing by how totally and completely wrong he is about everything, and instructive because my annoyance at reading his colossal errors is making me think hard about what is actually true. He did have a few things (a very few things) correct. For example he does seem to have a passing familiarity with shamanism. But traditional shamanism provided a valuable service to tribal communities. Shamans were judged by how well they could heal and how well they could predict the future. I am presuming that he at least is a good healer. He should stick to what he knows.

This book is very heavy on proselytizing Buddhism, which is fine. But I think he should say that upfront, rather than going on and on about how his religion is totally right and encompasses all religions, that it doesn't matter if you are Christian or Jewish or whatever, as long as you are Buddhist. Those interested in converting to Buddhism would do well to read the sutras.

He does seem to have the sight, but anybody with it knows, or should know, that 90% of what is seen is not veridical. There is no discernment, either in his own statements or in accepting the most farfetched ideas from others. Some of this is harmless, like blindly repeating the assertions of Zecharia Sichin or that polyester would have some kind of Rapture. But some of his assertions are quite harmful, like saying that global warming has nothing to do with human activity. He even repeats hateful conspiracy theories about AIDS, Ebola, and vaccinations, which could cause immediate harm. At least when he repeats them he immediately distances himself from them. He has a strange relationship with science.
