Civilization''s transition mirrors that of many individuals: an old world falls apart and eventually we step into a new. As that happens, much that was once certain disintegrates, and our old ways of making choices and effecting change become obsolete. Vast new possibilities arise, even miraculous possibilities, yet we may also go through periods of loneliness and doubt. Let us ground ourselves more solidly in the new world, so that we may more fully believe -- and enact -- what we know in our hearts.
Charles Eisenstein is a gifted teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. Eisenstein is the author of such seminal and provocative books as """"Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition"""" and """"The Ascent of Humanity: Civilization and the Human Sense of Self"""". His on-line writings have generated a vast following; he speaks frequently at conferences and other events, and gives numerous interviews on radio and podcasts. David Korten, author of """"When Corporations Rule the World"""", called Eisenstein “one of the up-and-coming great minds of our time.” Eisenstein graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, and spent the next ten years as a Chinese-English translator. He currently lives in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with his wife and three sons. For more information about Charles Eisenstein, visit charleseisenstein.net.
