"A powerful guide through the violence and brilliance of the past up to the present and beyond. . . . It's a beautiful piece of work." —Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of Conscious Evolution

"Read this book and help save our world." —Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief

"A thoughtful guide for the perplexed. Accessible, well wrought, and insightful." —Leonard Shlain, author of The Alphabet Versus the Goddess
Positing that modern society is an adolescent culture, driven by greed and power and lying on the cusp of an era of spiritual growth and shifting values, this book explores mythic themes in various historical eras to explain the past, present, and future of the human experience. It suggests that the world is facing a rite of passage into adulthood and that a time of cooperation, stabilization, and sharing is approaching. With an original theory of history based on developmental psychology, including an analysis of masculine and feminine archetypes, this thoughtful guide weaves the narratives of human history and individuals' experiences into a path of enlightenment and a way to catalyze social change.
