Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"This is a revolutionary and interactive book—in the sense that it inspires the reader to think out of the ordinary. Eisenstein will be noted in antiquity as one of the seminal and pioneering storytellers of this new world."
Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“It is rare to find, in such digestible portions, so rich a feast for mind and heart."  
—Joanna Macy, author of Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy
“When I read Charles Eisenstein I felt as if I had just put on an extraordinarily clear, lucid, morally honest set of glasses. I see my outer and inner worlds in penetrating detail. He isn't just describing a possible world. He is helping us find our way to it.” 
—Vicki Robin, author of Your Money or Your Life
“Charles Eisenstein is a cultural investigative journalist, questioning the perpetually unexamined assumptions of both conventional and counter-cultural thinking. He is a cultural storyteller, a visionary who gives us a glimpse of what the new Story of the People may look like, how we might get there, and how close we are to it.”
—Mark Boyle, author of The Moneyless Manifesto
“God damn this is good! This version of the big story by Charles Eisenstein is one of the best I have ever heard. Charles, you are speaking for millions of us and we so know what you are saying to be true. We will absolutely tell the whole fucking world about it.”
—Brad Blanton, author of Radical Honesty
“The more beautiful world I inhabit accords with Charles Eisenstein's vision: a world where we embrace the shadow and give it name so that the healing can begin. Take this book and let it seep into your very being.”
—Polly Higgins, author of Eradicating Ecocide, barrister and earth lawyer
 “This book will change your world. It is beautiful because Charles Eisenstein has the courage to be vulnerable and it is in acknowledging our vulnerability that we will realize our greater humanity.”
—Revd Peter Owen-Jones, presenter of Around the World in 80 Faiths, author, and priest

"One does not 'read' this book, but rather interacts with it. And take heed, it will open your heart and mind, arouse ire and derision, and change the way you think about your life. Beautifully written, heart-warming, and thought-provoking, Eisenstein will undoubtedly be noted in history as a pivotal storyteller."
New Conciousness Review

On Sacred Economics
"This brilliant and beautifully written book is a must-read for all those who believe our economic system is terminally sick and in need of radical, sacred rehaul. I hope this book begins a serious, worldwide conversation on how we can reinvent our attitude to money."
—Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism

On The Ascent of Humanity
"Brilliant and original, with great depth of insight and understanding. The Ascent of Humanity easily ranks with the works of such giants of our age as David Bohm, Julian Jaynes, Jean Gebser, Alfred North Whitehead...."
—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg

Présentation de l'éditeur

In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? This inspirational and thought-provoking book serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling, replacing it with a grounding reminder of what’s true: we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. By fully embracing and practicing this principle of interconnectedness—called interbeing—we become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world.

Throughout the book, Eisenstein relates real-life stories showing how small, individual acts of courage, kindness, and self-trust can change our culture’s guiding narrative of separation, which, he shows, has generated the present planetary crisis. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get our selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted. Above all, Eisenstein invites us to embrace a radically different understanding of cause and effect, sounding a clarion call to surrender our old worldview of separation, so that we can finally create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

With chapters covering separation, interbeing, despair, hope, pain, pleasure, consciousness, and many more, the book invites us to let the old Story of Separation fall away so that we can stand firmly in a Story of Interbeing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Most Important Book Ever Written 6 novembre 2013
Par Chris Agnos - Publié sur
The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible is one of the most timely books ever to be written in the history of humanity. Never before have we faced such dire crises as we do collectively today. Many of us can't see a way to fix them. This book is the answer to the despair that arises. Charles Eisenstein provides the context, tools, and vision to help us understand the root causes of why the world is the way it is in a way that empowers us to become effective changemakers. The book explores such root topics such as pain, pleasure, judgement, hate, evil, hope, reality, climate, and many more. Understanding that the source of these basic human emotions and feelings comes from a story of the world that is no longer serving us, we can begin to move toward a new horizon and a different story of ourselves and the world. From that new story which is so close we can even touch it at times, we can create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. This work is nothing short of a masterpiece. Get an extra copy. You are going to want to give it to someone you love. Thank you Charles!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Way To the Answer To Everything...No Kidding 16 décembre 2013
Par Melanie H. Rummel - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
No words I could write will do justice to this work of heart by Charles Eisenstein. It is, without question, the most important book I've read in my 6 decades of life ( I have read hundreds) although surely each has been "the next step" in my coming to this one. I will be giving this book to every close relationship I have, not just those whose experience has been easy, and certainly not knowing if it will be "the next step" for him/her. No matter. This book has put all the missing pieces together for this formerly dismayed, yet somehow-still-hopeful, seeker of solutions for (what I have previously viewed as) a world gasping for breath. My fiancé is now reading it and is having his mind blown, too. As two seriously committed activists for a healthy, peaceful planet, and human beings trying to dance to the tune of "cosmic unity", we have often felt like two cripples on an arduous journey, finding it difficult to walk, much less leap for joy. We now understand that with a frequency that frankly made us ache to acknowledge, we've unknowingly viewed the complexity of family, business, community and world problems (and those we blamed) through what Charles calls the Story (and thus the perspective) of Separation. Wholey changed by absorbing his message, I must say that reading it feels more like "remembering" something I've always deeply known, like a forgotten name on the tip of one's tongue, that when retrieved, elicits an exhuberant inner "Yes!" We are beginning to walk on wobbling legs the New Story of Interbeing Charles eloquently unfolds, and while not naive to our challenges, are thrilled at the possibilities for us all. My greatest "thank you" to Charles Eisenstein will be to truly integrate this Story of Reunion into my life and let the ripple effect begin. By the way, I've never written a review for a book before and do not receive any compensation from its sale, but do except to enjoy a global increase of love that will surely follow its exposure.

Perhaps there is hope in the face of the overwhelming evidence of a collapse of civilization and near term human extinction. Eisenstein meets this evidence head-on without denial or empty platitudes. Despair can produce apathy (nothing we do really matters) - or, as Eisenstein points out, it can break the hold of dominant worldviews and obsolete understandings of cause and effect. Everything we do changes the universe. Hope is found on the other side of despair.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Couldn't put down this compelling and provocative look at what is and what might be 23 novembre 2013
Par c.m.boyd - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Read this book if you know there’s a better way to live, a way that restores connections to each other and connections to the earth; a way in which we were born to live; a way that we used to live but have long abandoned. Read this book if you want this way to be illustrated for you and colored in with vibrant hues. Read this book if you want some direction on how to get there.

Charles seems to have learned important lessons after writing two other extremely provocative books on how we got to where we are and how to make radical and not-so-radical changes (Ascent of Humanity and Sacred Economics). Since publication of those books, he speaks all over the world about them. I have read all three books now.

This third book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, makes me think of Charles Eisenstein as a modern-day Annie Sullivan—prodding a willfully blind, dumb, mute and emotionally immature culture to recognize knowledge buried deep within, which, once recognized, will change life forever. It feels as though, through the questions and rebuttals he’s received on his travels, he now knows his audience, and how to speak with us.

When I read The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, I got the sense that Charles has learned that we are all Helen groping in the dark. We are impertinent but teachable--ignorant but questioning. And so he has to take us back to the place where maybe we will recognize something—a spark that he treats so gently that, rather than fanning it out, by the end of the book it has grown to stand on its own, turning to ash the hard wood of our outmoded beliefs.

With his musical prose, right in the book’s beginning he takes us by the shoulders and assures us that once upon time, where we came from was a place where people didn’t compete, didn’t hoard retirement funds, didn’t have to buy recycling buckets, didn’t have to enact laws to keep the air and water clean, didn’t turn on TV or the internet for some vague and meaningless social connection. In other words, we are living an aberrant lifestyle. We haven’t progressed. Well, we have progressed in a certain sense and in an important sense—but we have bought that progress with Separation. Now it is time for Reunion and Interbeing, and they are beckoning us at this particular time.

And, importantly, he recognizes that in order to make his case for an exodus from this aberration, he has to peel back layers and layers of thoughts and beliefs that will keep us stuck in Helen’s blind and dumb world. And that’s exactly what he does in this book.

What helps is his modest downplay of his qualifications. He doesn’t claim to be Moses or Christ. Nor does he claim to have credentials in quantum physics. He’s not Einstein or Margaret Mead and he tells us that right off the bat. Rather, a theme running through the book is a very humble sentiment: if I can think this, and if I can believe in it, anyone can. He reminds me almost of the self-recriminations of St Teresa in Interior Castle, telling her “dear sisters” how inadequate she is for the task of taking us all on the journey to our God-self. Eisenstein does the same thing, exhorting his “dear readers” to understand that he is simply one person describing one world that seems crazily unlike the one we’re in, a world of Union and Beauty. Despite my humble status, he tells us, I have some ideas to present to you on how to move from the Age of Separation to the Age of Interbeing, to the Age of Reunion. But hey, I’m just one of you all, and we’re all in this together. “Enlightenment,” he says, “is a group activity.”

In Charles’ weaving of the story of Interbeing he becomes apologist for both cynic and dreamer. And in doing so, he gives us an example of how we might straddle the space between Separation and Reunion in order to come to the place where we can understand without judging; accept without capitulating.

Each chapter has a theme, such as “Separation,” “Force,” “Reality,” “Hope,” “Judgment,” “Miracle,” etc. Each of these chapter themes are a layer of the onion he peals away to prod our resistant minds to overcome current beliefs in order to see what there might be. Indeed, not which might be, but what is, and that which we simply cannot see from our vantage point—a view obscured by mountains of “the way things are.” From this vantage point, we are the proverbial clueless frogs in the pot of water, not conscious of the water heating up and not conscious of the life beyond--if we dare to open our eyes—and then to leap.

So, my own reading experience ran parallel to the themes—and my mind became a concoction of curiosity, doubt, cynicism, separation, naivete, disruption of my beliefs. And hope. And joy.

And tears. Because it’s poignantly reassuring to read The More Beautiful World and go from *yes*, this is difficult to envision, and *no*, no one person has the key (certainly not the humble author), and *yes*, if we simply perform small acts with integrity the world might change and *no*, it’s not easy given the quicksand we’re in, but *yes!*, isn’t it exciting to imagine--because by imagining, maybe we will invoke the reality of a new world!...

…And *no*, you can’t pursue this dream without cutting the hard wires, the very hard wires of Separation that have been soldered and resoldered on our souls and our minds by virtue of our inherited belief systems over the past millennia.

But if we can prod ancient knowledge that runs deep in the aquifers of our souls and find a crack in the rock of our assumptions, we will be on the road to The More Beautiful World. We will learn language to move forward. We will have uttered “wah-wah” at the pump, and have thus have started the journey. Not to the *most* beautiful world, which is too fantastical and hard to wrap our minds around, but to the *more* beautiful world, which we all can work on. It’s possible, and it's achievable--individually and collectively. And this book shows us how.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Encouraging, and raises questions about details 27 janvier 2014
Par D. Hazen - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have enjoyed previous short quotes from Eisenstein that were taken out of context. This is the first time I have read one of his books. At first, I had difficulty adapting to the dry, abstract style. Eisenstein writes with a great deal of logic and includes some anecdotal evidence, as if he were proving a theorem in a debate, which he does very well. I found myself in agreement with every one of his points. In fact, I have suggested this book to many of my friends. As one of the "old hippies" from the '60's that he discusses toward the end of the book, I too have struggled, and still struggle, with despair. I was mostly encouraged by his pointing out that the younger generation is more apt to grasp the significance of the New Story. My hope for this book was that it would end with more prescriptive advice than "be the change you wish to see in the world" (Gandhi), so I was a bit let down. I tend to think in practical, engineering strategies for social change. There are available specific methods for working with our shadow side, to bring forth our light, and although Eisenstein names a few of them, I think it would have been helpful to be more detailed in pointing out their commonalities as well as their differences. I would like to have read more about the details of his personal story, of how he himself experienced and struggled with his own transformation.
