Reflections on Evolutionary Activism
Essays, poems and prayers from an emerging field of sacred social change
A seed sown by Tom Atlee, toward the emergence of a movement of conscious evolutionary activism
Why this book? Why now?
Activism has a bad rap as militant and angry. We can reframe activism as a pro-active effort to catalyze the emergence of more life-serving social systems, cultures, technologies, stories, and conditions. There is inspiration and guidance for this in evolution's ancient story, cosmic creativity, and wise dynamics. As we face emerging extinction-level crises, the narrative of evolution seems ever more appropriate as a source of meaning and motivation. This book explores how we can become more conscious partners and expressions of the sacred, powerful evolutionary story, to bring forth a civilization that is as vibrant as it is sustainable.
