Banyen's Description: 

The Conscious Activist is packed with compelling narrative and deep reflection on the demands of both mystical realization, effective activism and the integration of the two. Each chapter gives the reader both compelling story to experience key aspects of actual mystical and activist training as well as sections which convey the central developmental concepts of each.

There is a rising tension in the book as the author engages in the contrasting requirements of inner development and outer change work in the world. The contrast between war, human rights abuse and rigorous activist frontline experience with intensive training by Sufi, Christian and other spiritual masters is held until powerful and authentic integration of both worlds is possible.

Torchbearers for justice, for healing and for unconditional love, it is time to pass through the flames together: the garden of the future we have longed for now draws near.

The integration the author experiences and describes aligns with new paradigms in science, mind-body-health, the global peace movement, individual and collective healing, visionary activism and the lineages of mystical transmission. The reader experiences the articulation of an evolutionary worldview that dramatically demonstrates how the integration of spirituality and action can lead humanity though its current challenges.

The Conscious Activist describes the many rigorous initiations needed before the power of the activist can become one with the power of the mystic.

 

The very great idea of a unifying field of engaged spirituality and transformative action, emerging as an earthly reality of universal peace and justice, is not sold at the front door of this book. It is a vision that cannot be accessed without participation. The Conscious Activist will reveal the sacred conjunction of mystic and activist as you enter into its stories, as you meet its many wisdom-keepers and reflect on the threading of ideas whose time has come to ignite the integration of ecstatic spirituality and inspired action.

James O’Dea is the lead faculty for the Shift Network’s Peace Ambassador Training, with hundreds of international participants. For more info: jamesodea.com
