Intuition for a World in Crisis (Paperback)
The systems that sustain life as we know it are on the verge of collapse as a result of human action and inaction. The dominance of a certain kind of reductive reasoning and the concomitant suppression of more intuitive modes of knowing are at the root of contemporary crises. This special issue of ReVision is part of an effort to reclaim the suppressed human faculties known as intuition, offering practical pathways to a more holistic and encompassing view of humanity and our relationship with the more-than-human-world. The paths traced by our authors lead from ancient shamanic teachings to leading-edge neuroscience, from dreams to meditation and communion with the living Earth. The contributors converge in their urgent sense that a rapid transformation of individual and collective consciousness is the best hope for a world in crisis, a transformation based in a recovery of ancient and enduring human capacities.
