7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Gianna Carini (Perada) on July 11, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is a tour de force meta-narrative of our times. I wish it had been longer as it filled with juicy insights all along the way. The author takes us through three essential questions of our time: Who are we? How did we get here? Where are we going?

Seeing the current state of humanity as a culture in its adolescence, with an unsustainable growth spurt fueled by oil, the author suggests that we are entering a planetary initiation into our future adulthood as a species. This initiation is brought on by the challenges of our time: global warming, resource depletion, economic instability, political unrest, new technologies, and the chaos of a dynamic system breaking through a deterministic paradigm.

This transition could also be called a shift in organizing principles for society - from one based on the love of power to one based on the power of love.

A former psychologist and author of many books on the chakra system, the author looks at the culture through many lenses: as a psychotherapist, historian, mythologist and mystic. Quite a combo. She sees various stages of our social history as reflecting humanity's infancy, toddlerhood, middle childhood (filled with sibling rivalry) and now in the midst of our full-fledge adolescence, transitioning into adults both in terms of our power ("more power in the hands of individuals than ever before") and in terms of general literacy, education, sophistication, access to the internet, ability to collaborate and organize, and the spiritual growth movement.

Format: Paperback
If like most of us you see so many disturbing signs of distress, decay, corruption and unraveling everywhere you look; and if at the same time you see so many signs of cooperation, regeneration, creative and restorative acts that serve a positive vision of the future, then this is the book for you.

Anodea Judith has a grasp of history, mythology, psychology and spirituality that is unmatched. She will take you on a journey that will be challenging, awakening, satisfying and motivating. The most effective personal choices and the actions with the most impact arise from those who understand our times, both the grand sweep and the immediate choices and opportunities that are right in front of us every day. Anodea is on target and with great heart.

Reading this book will put your feet on the ground, awaken your vision and put your heart in the right place.

Format: Paperback
Anodea Judith is a brilliant scholar who can take a subject and make it absolutely fascinating to the average reader. In this book, an update of her previous work, "Waking the Global Heart," she looks at history from a completely new perspective. Rather than boring facts lined up in order, she looks at streams of patterns, an evolutionary path that humans have grown through. It's clear that we're in a time of crisis - a global rite of passage. Civilization as we know it could collapse anytime. It's only by studying our past and understanding our evolution as a species that we can know where we're headed, and how to get there.

This is the most interesting and readable book about history - and our future - I've ever read. In fact, prior to reading it, I hadn't understood the larger patterns of our growth and development as a species. She weaves a fascinating story with her eloquent, thoughtful voice. Not "His-story," as we've been taught in school, but OUR story. When we look back, we can see where we've come from. Then, she turns our attention toward our future, showing us that we have a choice, right now, and that our choices will lead us either into a glorious future (if we can open our hearts to each other and to the planet), or to more death and destruction if we do not. Although it sounds alarming, alarms are important if you're trying to wake up in time.

In her previous works, she looked at psychological development, and personal growth, through the lens of the Chakra System, a map to wholeness. In this book, she uses that lens again to examine the development of human civilization. Because she is also a brilliant psychotherapist, it's as if she has Western Civilization itself on the psych couch.

Anodea is no doubt intellectually and creatively gifted - her insights are truly astounding even for the thoughtful, inquiring mind. Her writing is incredibly eloquent - thank God, because she has so much to communicate - all of which will open your mind and your heart.

Format: Paperback
This book reveals a powerful view of humanity. I enjoyed a fascinating journey with rich insights shared through the author's focused mystic lens. I was inspired as Anodea uncovered patterns in history in a unique and refreshing way.

I was guided through dark periods of human development and atrocities yet the authors' guidance enabled me to see how we can rise from our common past to embrace a bright future brimming with new possibilities.

Easy to read and understand, I felt that this book gives us clear information and wise council to help us navigate the opportunities of this very dynamic and exciting future we are co-creating. The textured insights into the character and development of humanity through different eras are presented artfully and with deep understanding.

I appreciate the illumination of the masculine and feminine dance through time. Not only does the author reveal many fascinating twists and brilliant nuances that kept the book in my hands way past my usual bedtime, she also points the way to a brighter future that makes me want to get up early to be part of the unfolding possibilities.

Be informed and inspired with this unique literary gem. Experience a rich bath in the historical, psychological and spiritual design of our present moment. Read this book and awaken to the grand unfolding that we are privileged to share. Thank You Anodea for this awesome offering.
