Global Shift

A remarkable and timely book that explores mankind's movement toward a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in. In Global Shift author Edmund J. Bourne describes a fundamental shift in mankind's way of viewing the world. This shift, over three decades in the making, is defined by the overthrow of the dominant materialistic, separatist worldview and the growth of humanitarianism and spirituality. According to Bourne this shift will revolutionize global interactions and how we conduct our everyday lives.

Living Deeply

This engaging book, the fruit of the Institute of Noetic Sciences' ongoing investigation into the power and potential of human consciousness, brings what we know about achieving personal transformation off the mountain top, down from the ivory tower, out of the laboratory, and into your hands. Groundbreaking insights were gleaned from representatives of many major world religions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Native American cosmology, and contemporary forms of spirituality, and are complemented by the latest discoveries from science.

The Adaptive Organization

The strains that most of us are feeling these days are also reflected within our institutions. In attempting to adapt, most still rely on traditional models of change that no longer work in a world where the old rules don't apply. Mase makes the case for a new model that bridges psychology, biology, and the principles of interdependence.

A World in Transition

With global civilization in the throes of transition, our guiding values and assumptions about reality are in flux. In this excerpt from Global Shift, the latest title from Noetic Books, Bourne describes both the conceptual and the practical themes that characterize these fundamental changes. Also featured is an excerpt about inclusive politics, “The Noah Principles,” from Van Jones’s best-selling book, The Green Collar Economy.

Born To Be Good

A new examination of the surprising origins of human goodness. In Born to Be Good, Dacher Keltner demonstrates that humans are not hardwired to lead lives that are "nasty, brutish, and short"—we are in fact born to be good. He investigates an old mystery of human evolution: why have we evolved positive emotions like gratitude, amusement, awe, and compassion that promote ethical action and are the fabric of cooperative societies?
