The deepening economic crisis and the threat posed by climate change and other social and ecological trends has caused many to despair. But with great danger comes great opportunity - the opportunity for fundamental change that will transform our societies from top to bottom. In WORLDSHIFT 2012, Ervin Laszlo brings together insights for creating sustainable positive change from spiritual leaders, scientists and visionary businesspeople - people such as Albert Einstein, Mohammad Yunus, Václav Havel, Eckhart Tolle, Ken Wilber, David Korten, Paul Hawken and Tomoyo Nonaka, former CEO of Sanyo Electronics. He shows how we can replace the limited consciousness of our failing society with the holistic consciousness that is reflected in the unified field of quantum physics: the Akashic field.
