What does it take to activate
conscious, positive change
in the world?
Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest James O'Dea, author of THE CONSCIOUS ACTIVIST: Where Activism Meets Mysticism - and former head of Amnesty International and the Institute of Noetic Sciences, says only the integration of the two - both activism and mysticism - has the power to wake up humanity from its course of rapid self-destruction.
In their ConsciousSHIFT conversation, Julie Ann and James will guide a deep reflection on the demands of mystical realization and effective activism.
James will share his experience and training to become both a mystic and an activist.
The mystic, he says, must move past petty ego concerns in order to experience oneness with each other and our divine source. The activist, on the other hand, explores the role of passion and conscience in activating social change.
There is communion, though, between the activist and the mystic – both seek to bring abstract concepts into flesh-and-blood reality.
James will also share what he sees as a meeting ground between the two worlds, where spirituality and action unite to spark an accelerated transition towards our greater goal: a more evolved civilization.
He sees it as essential that we all become conscious activists – to learn, collectively, how to move beyond our rigid conformity to beliefs of the past and its archaic structures of power and control.
Our global problems of extreme competitiveness and violence have escalated in human history because we have not learned to evolve beyond them.
Join Julie Ann and James for this powerful conversation about what being a Conscious Activist means, as it offers a meaningful answer to the question of who we are when we are fully evolved. This ConsciousSHIFT offers us the chance to save ourselves from our self-imposed prisons, and to become fully conscious of our power to bring heaven to Earth.
