Sacred America, Sacred World
Sacred America, Sacred World
Infused with visionary power, Sacred America, Sacred World is a manifesto for our country’s evolution that is both political and deeply spiritual. It offers profound hope that America can grow beyond our current challenges and manifest our noblest destiny, which the book shows is rooted in sacred principles that transcend left or right political views.
Filled with practical ideas and innovative strategies honed from the author’s work with over 1000 luminaries via his company, The Shift Network, Sacred America, Sacred World rings with a can-do entrepreneurial spirit and explains how America can lead the world toward peace, sustainability, health, and prosperity. This vision of the future weaves the best of today’s emergent spirituality with seasoned political wisdom, demonstrating ways America can grow beyond its current stagnation and political gridlock to become a world leader in peace and progress.
Published to coincide with the party conventions and presidential debates, this book will promote a return to the sacred principles cherished by America's forefathers in order to create a “transpartisan,” non-ideological, pragmatic approach to social reform. This uplifting discussion explores evolutions in political leadership, environmental concerns, and economic reformation.
It is time to forge a bold new image of America’s future. Here is a road map for getting there.

Radical Spirit offers dispatches from Generation X, the maligned and misunderstood generation of Americans born between 1960 and 1980. Walking in the spiritual wake of self-inflated baby boomers, this generation has much to offer to the discussion of modern spirituality. Visionary contributors, such as Julia Butterfly Hill (The Legacy of Luna), Eric Davis (a contributing editor toWired magazine), and Soren Gordhamer (Just Say Om!), are up-front and realistic, and tell vivid personal stories. "It's no accident that the freshest spiritual writing these days is largely autobiographical and confessional," writes Erik Davis, in "Meditating in Sensurround." "When it comes to spirituality, that amorphous and easily misheard inner call, we have come to trust experience, however mundane and confused, more than belief systems or philosophical reflection."
These life experiences are plentiful, occasionally cynical, and almost always soul-touching. Stephen Dinan, the anthology's editor, writes about his first serious meditation retreat in India. Scientist Albert Wong writes about watching a sunset in Jerusalem while whistling the words to a Supertramp song and pondering "Why am I here?" Rabbi Daniel Kohn speaks to finding "Kabbalah and Aikido." This is a highly recommended anthology for all ages and all spiritual orientations--one that offers radical and ageless messages of enduring love, hope, and optimism. --Gail Hudson
