Description

This timely and compelling anthology is a rousing call-to-action for all of us to help transform the world into a just, peaceful, and thriving one—featuring creative and practical solutions to the many crises facing humanity today.

Humanity is currently facing a series of interconnected emergencies that threaten our very survival—from climate change to economic inequality and beyond. And yet, at the same time, a global shift towards harnessing our collective power to create a life-affirming future is flourishing.

Featuring chapters by forty-three leading-edge contributors, such as Gregg Braden, Lynne McTaggart, Bruce Lipton, Jean Houston, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Ervin Laszlo, Joan Borysenko, Larry Dossey, and many more, Our Moment of Choice provides eye-opening and inspirational visions for a unified, peaceful, and thriving world. The time has come for all humanity to be united in purpose. This is our collective moment of choice, upon which our future depends.

“This innovative and revolutionary message of hope and wisdom from many of the greatest visionaries and evolutionary leaders of our times is creating a global movement that will lead us to growth and transformation as we usher in a new earth. I highly recommend this book.”

“Important medicine for a time of rapid change!”
— Stephen Dinan, CEO of The Shift Network

Our Moment of Choice is a magnificent affirmation of choice, care, and compassion. It is a song of love.”
— Gary Zukav, author of "The Seat of the Soul" and "The Dancing Wu Li Masters"

“This is a book writ large—a beautiful symphonic composition from different eminent authors, who discern the confluence of the great evolutionary flow of human consciousness that is ushering us into the higher realms of global transformation. A moving, astounding work that expresses the underlying unity that exists in the pluralistic and diverse external world, and lovingly, thoughtfully guides us into transcendence. The multi-perspectival approaches expressed consistently point to the truth of our wholeness that will lead us to a planetary wholesomeness built on the foundation of love, compassion, and selfless service to humanity. A revelatory map that charts the course to our collective awakening.”
— Audrey Kitagawa, chair of the Parliament of the World’s Religions

“In Our Moment of Choice, a remarkable community of wisdom teachers share their profound reflections, and call each of us to a journey of discovery. Each chapter invites us to awaken the potential within to make the choices that will nurture wholeness and connectedness in self, other, and world. Together these authors are midwives of a movement for an expanded human consciousness, ancient and new, offering hope and pathways to renewed life at a time of human and planetary reckoning.”
— The Rev. Victor H. Kazanjian Jr., executive director, United Religions Initiative
