As seen on Oprah's SuperSoul Sunday In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? This inspirational and thought-provoking book serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling, replacing it with a grounding reminder of what’s true: we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. By fully embracing and practicing this principle of interconnectedness—called interbeing—we become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world. Throughout the book, Eisenstein relates real-life stories showing how small, individual acts of courage, kindness, and self-trust can change our culture’s guiding narrative of separation, which, he shows, has generated the present planetary crisis. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get our selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted. Above all, Eisenstein invites us to embrace a radically different understanding of cause and effect, sounding a clarion call to surrender our old worldview of separation, so that we can finally create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. With chapters covering separation, interbeing, despair, hope, pain, pleasure, consciousness, and many more, the book invites us to let the old Story of Separation fall away so that we can stand firmly in a Story of Interbeing.

In a time of mounting chaos and crumbling institutions, how can we as individuals do anything to make the world a better place? This inspirational and thought-provoking book serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling, replacing it with a grounding reminder of what's true: We are all connected, all living in mutual symbiosis, and the small, personal choices we make as individuals are far more effective and transformational than most of us imagine. By fully embracing and practicing this principle of interconnectedness called interbeing we inherently become more effective agents of change and have far more positive influence on the world around us.

Sacred Economics Revised

Expanded and updated, Charles Eisenstein's classic treatise on capitalism, currency, and the gift economy. This revised version traces the history of money, from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, and includes new material on cryptocurrencies and emerging research that has come out since the book's original publication. Charles Eisenstein shows how capitalism contributes to alienation, competition, and scarcity; destroys community; and necessitates endless growth at the cost of social and environmental devastation. Today, these trends have reached their extreme--and their collapse presents a golden opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being. Eisenstein describes the deeper narratives beneath our economic system, and how we can reimagine it to align with a new story. Applying a broadly integrated synthesis of theory, policy, and practice, he explores avant-garde concepts of the New Economics, including negative-interest currencies, local economies, gift economics, cryptocurrencies, and the restoration of the commons. Tapping into a rich lineage of conventional and unconventional economic thought, Eisenstein presents a vision that is original yet commonsense, radical yet gentle, and increasingly relevant as the crises of our civilization deepen.

"One hierarchy has been of supreme importance in all known human societies: the hierarchy of gender, says historian Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. "People everywhere have divided themselves into men and women," says Harari, "and almost everywhere men have got the better deal, at least since the Agricultural Revolution." However, there has been a costly consequence for men's top-dog status. In his book, The Hazards of Being Male, psychologist Herb Goldberg says, "The male has paid a heavy price for his masculine 'privilege' and power. He is out of touch with his emotions and his body. He is playing by the rules of the male game plan and with lemming-like purpose he is destroying himself--emotionally, psychologically and physically." 12 Rules for Good Men is based on the new findings from evolutionary science demonstrating three important truths. First, there was an earlier time in human history where males and females enjoyed greater equality. Second, what we call "civilization" has improved our lives in some way but caused unrecognized harm to males, females, and the fragile planet we all share. Third, there are critical, biologically based, differences between males and females that need to be understood and respected if we are to end the battle of the sexes and co-create, in the words of Charles Eisenstein, "the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible." 12 Rules for Good Men is the first book to offer men new rules for success in the 21st century. It guides men to engage three questions we must all answer before we die: 1. Did I live fully? 2. Did I love deeply? 3. Did I make a positive difference in the world?

"We want to create the more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible--a sacred world, a world that works for everybody, a world that is healing, a world of peace." Charles Eisenstein Take a moment to imagine where we might be today, in terms of human progress, had mavericks like Copernicus and Galileo, and many others throughout history, not found the courage and freedom to come forward and speak their truths. Would we still believe that the earth was the center of the universe? It takes great courage to not just accept things as they are, but instead to speak our own unconventional truths in the face of the status quo. However scary this prospect may seem, it can lead not only to our own individual liberation, but also to the liberation of humanity. Imagine the wonderful future we could create if we are bold enough. This book takes a whole-systems, evolutionary perspective in addressing our greatest challenges like climate change, human rights, our dying economic system, and modern day slavery, in all its forms. There's a new abolitionist movement sweeping the planet to free us of our economic shackles. It's time to embrace a new story, beyond the old paradigm of fear, separation and fighting a civil war that would be too big and too global to fight, let alone win. This is a book of hope and optimism which aims to unravel the reality of where we are, the scope of what's needed, and the 21st-century tools that we now have at our fingertips, literally. I hope you'll join me on this journey and help shape this more beautiful world that is on its way. We live in the most remarkable and awe-inspiring time to be alive in all of human history. I am humbled and grateful to be a part of this great transition. "Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing." Arundhati Roy

This is a swashbuckling true story about a woman who decides to untangle her dual dreams of finding a partner and circumnavigating the globe. After many years of entwined devotion to her boat and her man--well. . . a string of men--she resolves to pursue one-half of the dream, the sailing one, despite the fact that her hormones are simmering with baby fever. Planning to hitchhike around the world, with very little money, she jumps on a yacht from North Carolina heading to the Caribbean. Pirate Girl is the captain of her own life, navigating with an internal compass that does not allow conventional fears to restrict her movement or her mind. In this memoir she searches her inner horizon through a feminist, sex positive, spiritual lens, making this deep and playful story a journey all kinds of women--on land or sea--will relate to and enjoy.

Erik & Rachel come from completely different worlds. Parallel Universes, actually. But they have one thing in common: they have both taken evolution's next step. They are the first humans since the dawn of history able to pull themselves out of time and experience other realms of existence. Is this a power all of humanity will develop in time?Erik & Rachel, guided by the tempestuous priestess, Temara, embark on a vision quest through parallel universes where they encounter the Time Being, a mischievous entity from a higher dimension who is attempting to halt human evolution. But why?Through a boundlessly imaginative narrative, Time Without End, envisions the world of the Unfesi, Rachel's People from another Earth.This genre-bending allegorical fantasy swashbuckler best fits into the genre of Magical Realism. But its core message is one of the possibilities of "Positive Futurism," which is my answer, as an Author, to what I see as the plague of dystopian books and films running largely unchecked in the world today.Check. :)If there's anything at all to the idea that thoughts affect reality (another concept this book toys with), then authors like Jules Verne are why Neil Armstrong was able to take that one giant leap. Because Jules and many many others had taken those first small steps.Positive Futurism is a missing genre, and one that could launch a thousand ideas from a million authors, and maybe, just maybe, take us a small step closer into the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
