Peter Russell, co-author of The Consciousness Revolution, discusses the roll of human consciousness and values in creating our current environmental and societal crisis, and why it may well be the younger generation that provides the needed paradigm shift to solve the problem.
Peter Russell’s background is in mathematics and theoretical physics, and unanswered questions in both these areas dropped him on to his path of enlightenment. This took him to India, where he studied meditation and eastern philosophy. Once he had time to synthesize all these aspects of life, he came to some profound conclusions: that we cannot continue on our current path of greed and environmental degradation and expect any kind of future of abundance and joy. We ust dig down to the roots of what true fulfillment is and begin living it, as we repair the damage we’ve done to our host, the earth.
