Dawn of the Akashic Age: New Consciousness, Quantum Resonance, and the Future of the World

Ervin Laszlo and Kingsley L. Dennis. Inner Traditions, $14.95 trade paper (224p) ISBN 978-1-62055-104-2
Philosopher Laszlo and sociologist Dennis, both prolific authors, believe that humanity is on the cusp of a new stage in its evolution. Rather than decry societal and climatic changes that they see as a natu-ral progression, these authors celebrate the opportunity our chaotic era presents to usher in the Akashic Age: a time of global connectedness and sustainable systems. The visionary authors imagine an en-lightened world circa 2030: "Out of the epiphany of awakening will come the increased sense and in-ner desire to develop humanitarian, ecological, and equitable systems." The prediction is idyllic; how does humanity get there? While the authors touch on a wide variety of familiar tools, like local econ-omies and alternative energy, their writing is more inspirational than prescriptive. When they do con-sider the functionality of new systems, they don't confine themselves to one viewpoint. It's refreshing to read about efforts to revive old-fashioned homesteading skills alongside praise for technological advances like social networking and crowdsourcing. Several guest contributors—including biodynam-ic entrepreneur Marco Roveda, leadership expert Jefferson Cann and activist/author Charles Eisen-stein—round out this idealistic manifesto with expertise on a variety of subjects.
