For several years now, Carolyn Baker has offered emotional and spiritual tools for preparing for living in a post-industrial world. Her 17 years of private practice as a therapist, and her experience as a professor of history and psychology, come through on her website, Speaking Truth to Power at www.carolynbaker.net. Carolyn’s book Sacred Demise: Walking The Spiritual Path of Industrial Civilization’s Collapse employs her experience from her practice of “Collapse Coaching”, working with real people who have gone beyond concern and become aware deep in their guts, that collapse isn’t just a concept. It’s a living reality taking shape all around us and is about to take over our future. Navigating The Coming Chaos: A Handbook For Inner Transition speaks to the life and guidance to be found in our hearts and our souls, as we shift out of the world of the predictable into the unpredictable. This is Carolyn’s latest book. It brings in the spirit of her drumming and storytelling, goes to the places of the primitive and sometimes the dark, that we need to be in touch with as we move into the future. It is a delight to tell our ShiftShapers listeners that Carolyn Baker’s compassion, commitment and vision come through in this 47-minute interview with ShiftShapers co-host Daniel Kerbein.
