How the human race can collectively grow our consciousness to solve the challenges threatening our Earth. It shows the pathway to evolving entirely new ways of living creatively and harmoniously as a species.
The Unselfish Spirit is an essential 21st century guide to unlocking the secrets of how we as a race can collectively grow our consciousness to solve the complex web of challenges that threaten life on Earth. As a species, we are at a tipping point in our evolutionary journey, exacerbated by worsening ecological conditions. We have been treating the Earth as an object to be exploited, and have consequently cut ourselves off from evolving co-operatively with nature.
We have to find new ways of doing, knowing and being so that we can live in harmony with all life. In this fascinating blend of meticulously researched theory with direct experience, Mick Collins identifies how our global crisis is also a spiritual one. He suggests that the cultivation of our psycho-spiritual awareness can reveal new vistas, helping us engage in our transformative potential, both individually and collectively.
The Unselfish Spirit draws inspiration from diverse fields such as cosmology, new biology and quantum physics, along with insights from depth psychology, occupational science and mysticism. Theories are discussed in relation to transforming consciousness and are enlivened by fascinating, real-life stories of people who have engaged in deep processes of change and transformation. At the end of each chapter there is an exercise, providing opportunities for experiential reflection, aiding you on your personal journey. With a preface by Tim O’Riordan OBE, FBA, Emeritus Professor, School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia, this is not just a learned exploration about psychospiritual transformation, it is a pathway to evolving entirely new ways of living creatively and harmoniously as a species.
