Most human histories are about power and politics, but the Global Heart Awakens offers the first narrative of human evolution told from a woman’s perspective and from the standpoint of the heart. This archetypal history of humanity offers a formula for creating a sustainable future and how we can get there. Anodea Judith explains in detail why we are facing a profound global initiation, and shows that—despite the dire crises we now face—humanity is moving forward on a journey to planetary adulthood.
For several decades, futurists and commentators all across the spectrum have proclaimed that humanity is experiencing the biggest shift in its evolutionary history. As more and more of us wake up to this fact, we are brought face-to-face with fundamental questions:
• Who are we in the light of our planetary crisis, and how did we get here?
• What happens if humanity fails to respond constructively to its challenges?
• Where will we go if we make the right choices? And, what will it take to make these choices?
The Global Heart Awakens takes on these and other big-picture questions, showing that only through a rite of passage will humanity shift from the love of power to the power of love. This initiation is an urgent and wrenching shift that will uproot and transform every aspect of human civilization as the “dynamic feminine” principle rises into equality and co-creative partnership with the masculine, for a true union of the heart. This new organizing principle leads us to a future that focuses on networks rather than markets, that favor cooperation over competition, and that chooses sustainability over exploitation.
