The Great Upshift
Ervin Laszlo and David Lorimer, drawing on their holistic expertise and global network, have assembled a stellar cast of contributors who decode the big picture to offer exactly what we need now. The world-renowned scientists and visionaries who contribute to this book illuminate where are we today and where we can go from here. They focus on the most burning question of all: how can we upshift ourselves - our ways of healing, of thinking and feeling, and even of intuiting - to respond to the pressing requirements of our time?
Their visions empower us to "be the change" we want to see in the world - to help others be a positive and critical part of the great upshift that has already started. This will be our salvation. This compendium of insights into solutions for our world troubled by climate change, conflict, and unsustainable conditions calls for the conscious participation of all of us to implement the verities within.

"Within the pages of this luminous book lies the artful means for engendering the upshift of a new order for our time, our space, and our lives together. In reading these essays, you become empowered to bring forth the unread vision of the higher dream, as we close the door on the old ways that no longer serve." Jean Houston, PhD, philosopher, author of The Possible Human
"The Great Upshift leads us beyond the casual speculation of what's possible in our lives by revealing practical steps to awaken a heartfelt world based in love rather than a bleak future born of fear." Gregg Braden, bestselling author of The Divine Matrix and The Wisdom Codes
