About Global Awakening

Shows how we must make deep changes to complete our paradigm shift from the old mechanistic worldview to the new organic worldview

• Reveals the distinct stages of paradigm shifts through the ages, including the 18th-century Enlightenment and the critical stage of our current shift

• Explains how the new organic worldview began with Goethe and Kant

• Offers solutions for each of us to be able to realize and make the deep changes needed for global regeneration

In Global Awakening, Michael Schacker shows that hidden within our global crises is a positive future for the planet. Sharing his 30 years of intensive research into the history of change as well as the evolution of consciousness and regenerative science, Schacker explains how our current shift from the old mechanistic worldview to a new organic worldview based on biological models follows the same pattern as other paradigm shifts across history, including the 18th-century Enlightenment and the American Revolution. He reveals the creative geniuses who have contributed to the birth of the organic worldview, beginning with Goethe, Kant, and Hahnemann. Exposing the scientific and social forces that drive paradigm shifts, he details the stages every paradigm shift progresses through: the early Enlightenment, the conservative backlash, the intensive phase, and and the transformational phase leading to the Organic Shift.

Explaining that we are currently in the throes of the paradigm flip, the critical last phase of our paradigm shift, Schacker shows how the mechanistic worldview is crumbling around us and nothing but a complete transformation in the way we think will keep us from the path of total self-destruction. Providing a map to overcome the allure of the simplistic mechanical model that has spawned countless unsustainable practices and problems--from global warming to intense economic disparities--the author offers concrete solutions showing how each of us can use our talents, skills, and time to make the deep changes needed for global regeneration.

Praise for Global Awakening

“Take the time to read Global Awakening and once you have digested its magnificent context and contents, consider sharing it with your friends and networks and spread the word. The book provides a very real sense of our place in the transformation of culture that holds the promise of reclaiming the world from those who have taken it hostage. The time to act is now, and Global Awakening belongs in the library of every awakened activist.”
Jeff Hutner, editor of New Paradigm Digest

“Michael Schacker’s book reveals the hidden history of great thinkers and change-makers along with progressive solutions for the here and now. This truthful and positive book could have powerful and far-reaching effects and will benefit anyone who reads it.”
Maurice Hinchey, U.S. Congressman from New York

Global Awakening is just what is needed right now: a penetrating analysis of the historical context of our current global crisis, plus the all-important--and hitherto missing--plan of how we get to where we want to be. This is the book the ‘organic’ movement has been waiting for and, I hope and trust, will embrace as its blueprint for the future. It is as important as Silent Spring and as prescient: a must-read for anyone struggling with the question of how to engage with the world in a positive and productive way.”
Philip Chandler, author of The Barefoot Beekeeper
