Raising Love Consciousness: Together We Can Change the World Paperback – November 7, 2017
A timely and engaging guide to living a loving life, beginning with your relationship with yourself, then expanding outwards to others around you and finally to the world at large.
As author Kashonia Carnegie acknowledges at the beginning of RAISING LOVE CONSCIOUSNESS, to say, "together we can change the world" sounds like "sensationalistic nonsense."It's also essential work. We find ourselves on the brink of ecological catastrophe, with xenophobia and racism on the rise. Our world is desperately in need of more love, but bringing more love into it is harder work than the seeming cheesiness the sentiment implies.
Dr. Carnegie understands this, and guides her readers patiently through the steps to living a loving life. She begins by separating love-as-an-emotion that we feel for specific people from love as a word that "embraces all moral virtues that ensure the flourishing of the self, of others, and all of nature." She then moves on to show us how we can acquire this second type of love as a skill, beginning with ourselves and ending with the entire human and natural world.
This might sound mushy, but it actually demands tremendous courage. The first step on her journey is self-awareness. You can't make a positive difference in the world unless you understand why you do what you do so that you can train yourself out of negative impulses and behaviors. This is life-changing and lifelong work. That's why it's helpful to have Carnegie's encouraging, conversational voice guide you through the process.
She fills her book with anecdotes from her life and research, including a very moving segment about how she learned to love nature while living alone with two dogs in the outback of Queensland.
RAISINGLOVE CONSCIOUSNESS succeeds at being both accessible and challenging, an essential combination for such an important topic. If you want to improve your own self and go on to change the world, it's a good manual to add to your mental toolkit.

About the Author
Kashonia Carnegie PhD ~ Sustainability Ethicist-Philosopher, “Leadership” Coach
Kashonia has lived a very colourful life, both personally and professionally. In her 20s, she lived under the stars and caught wild donkeys in Australia’s harsh Outback; was Australia’s first female oil company representative; and set-up and ran a couple of small businesses. From her early 30s, she spent 14 years working in the media, primarily as a talk-back radio broadcaster, before beginning her academic journey which resulted in the completion of five university degrees including a PhD; after which she taught ethics, leadership, and change management for the MBA programs at a couple of leading universities in Australia and their off-shore campuses in Hong Kong and Singapore. During that time she also spent a couple of years delivering an Ecotourism Interpretation workshop that she designed for the Singapore National Parks Board.
Woven throughout all of her media work and university studies were extensive academic and independent studies in areas such as spirituality, religious studies, quantum theory, new science, positive psychology, coaching psychology, neuroscience, and behavioural science including Practitioner and Master Practitioner levels of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming); together with a range of different work activities as a leadership coach, corporate trainer, speaker, and sessional mediator/conciliator for the Department of Justice in both Victoria and Queensland.
Kashonia’s greatest passion has always been to elicit the magic in others that enables them to manifest boundaryless possibilities.
