We still have the consciousness needed to create an Industrial Revolution, not to deal with its aftermath.
Consciousness Beyond Consumerism: A Psychological Path to Sustainability is a new book, being launched on the 2nd August 2021, that demonstrates we can create a more sustainable society by developing a new level of consciousness. If we do not, our consumerism will continue to destroy the environment upon which our lives depend.
We are at the tipping point of destroying what makes planet Earth habitable for humans and many other life forms. Most of the solutions already
exist and a multitude of people are working to implement them. Yet, despite this, each day, the crisis worsens. The consciousness that created the crisis is still too dominant in westernised societies. If we are to create a more sustainable society, we now need to develop a new level of consciousness.
Consciousness Beyond Consumerism: A Psychological Path to Sustainability draws on psychology, religion, science, philosophy and economics to demonstrate how our consciousness has been industrialised over centuries, becoming the root of our current sustainability crisis. Part one enables readers to examine their mind and understand how your consciousness supports and reinforces our unsustainable economy. Part two demonstrates how we can individually and collectively develop a new level of consciousness, to enable sustainable living, and provides practical techniques to support this personal growth.
“This is a profound tool for liberation. It will change the way you think, but more, much more, it will change the way you feel.” - Ed Mayo, CEO Pilotlight, co-founder of the Fairtrade Mark and former Director of the New Economics Foundation and Secretary General of Co-operatives UK.
