Consciousness Beyond Consumerism: A Psychological Path to Sustainability
Consciousness Beyond Consumerism: A Psychological Path to Sustainability demonstrates that we can create a more sustainable society by developing a new consciousness. If we do not, our consumerism will continue to destroy the environment upon which our lives depend.
We are at the tipping point of destroying what makes planet Earth habitable for humans and many other life forms. Most of the solutions already exist and a multitude of people are working to implement them. Yet, despite this, each day, the crisis worsens. The consciousness that created the crisis is still too dominant in westernised societies. If we are to create a more sustainable society, we now need to develop a new level of consciousness.
Consciousness Beyond Consumerism: A Psychological Path to Sustainability draws on psychology, religion, science, philosophy and economics to demonstrate how our consciousness has been industrialised over centuries, becoming the root of our current sustainability crisis. Part one enables readers to examine their mind and understand how your consciousness supports and reinforces our unsustainable economy. Part two demonstrates how we can individually and collectively develop a new level of consciousness, to enable sustainable living, and provides practical techniques to support this personal growth.
