Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Superb, exciting, sane, and enlightening—a social activism that is also personal, emotional, spiritual, ecological, relational, and that points toward the very leading edge of evolution itself. Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision and Grace and Grit
Patten clarifies how our wicked problems require us to grow beyond debate, one-upmanship, and other non-communication, to talk and listen in new ways. He’s right on the mark—we must reknit our social fabric—our collective future requires it. Joan Blades, cofounder of MoveOn.org and Living Room Conversations
Terry Patten has woven together strands from evolutionary neuroscience, deep ecology, integral theory, and spiritual wisdom to offer a practical path forward out of humanity’s current morass. Fascinating, fast-moving, and heartfelt, this book is a gem. Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha's Brain and Hardwiring Happiness
What we have here is possibly the finest example of the making of the possible human, and with this, the development of a possible world. Jean Houston, PhD, author of A Passion for the Possible  
A New Republic of the Heart should be required reading for all humans over the age of sixteen. Stanley Krippner, PhD, coauthor of Personal Mythology
