Global Shift

Global Shift

How a New World Is Transforming Humanity

by Edmund J. Bourne, PhD

A remarkable and timely book that explores mankind's movement toward a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in. In Global Shift author Edmund J. Bourne describes a fundamental shift in mankind's way of viewing the world. This shift, over three decades in the making, is defined by the overthrow of the dominant materialistic, separatist worldview and the growth of humanitarianism and spirituality. According to Bourne this shift will revolutionize global interactions and how we conduct our everyday lives.

Global Shift explores the roots of such current planetary crises as climate change, diminishing resources, poverty, and disease, and explains how a new convergence of scientific research and spiritual insight is propelling us toward a more enlightened future. In it Bourne outlines actions we can implement now, such as voluntary simplicity, nonviolent communication, caring for our bodies, and inclusive global thinking, that can foster personal healing and bring our lives into alignment with the needs of the planet and a conscious universe.
