Occupy Consciousness: Essays on the Global Insurrection

Occupy ConsciousnessThe Evolver Social Movement presents OCCUPY CONSCIOUSNESS: Essays on the Global Insurrection, a free eBook anthology (edited by me and Reality Sandwich Associate Editor Mitch Mignano) that offers a variety of viewpoints on the nascent rebellion from writers such as Doug Rushkoff, David Graeber, Starhawk, and Russell Brand. Together these pieces provide an essential perspective on the true significance of Occupy—not a protest movement essentially, but a harbinger of a new way of being.

Is this movement’s implicit goal to re-engage our humanity? To reach beyond the political, the national and other illusory, temporary concepts and into our true, spiritual nature?—Russell Brand

Direct action is, ultimately, the defiant insistence on acting as if one is already free.—David Graeber

Despite being subject to ridicule from the mainstream and intense suppression from police and government forces in the US and abroad, Occupy has shifted the discourse around critical social, political, and economic issues, breaking the silence around the collusion between government, corporate, and financial interests.… Read the rest

Extraterrestrials, The Secret Government, And You

dolan.160x300Richard Dolan is a leading authority in UFO studies and the author of the extraordinarily well-researched two-volume work, UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973. A trained historian and former Oxford student, he brings an academic’s rigor to the subject of extraterrestrial contact and secret government efforts to explore UFOs and alien technology. He recently released A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact, a projected history of the near future.

Dolan is hosting the upcoming Evolver Intensive, Two Worlds in Collision: Extraterrestrials, the Secret Government, and You, featuring Jim Marrs, Linda Moulton Howe, and me, Daniel Pinchbeck, as guests, beginning May 12.

In anticipation of the event, I asked Richard some questions about his work:

Daniel Pinchbeck: What inspired you to write UFOs and the National Security State?

Richard Dolan: I was writing a doctoral dissertation on Cold War strategy and national security policy in the Truman era when I found Timothy Good’s Above Top Secret, at a bookstore in Syracuse.Read the rest

E+SM Mix: Evolution for Your Ears

MixlpHave you ever wondered what a planetary transformation of society and consciousness based on the integration of esoteric philosophy, shamanic practice, design science, dance floor grooves, and cutting-edge communications technology might sound like? We hope so, because we devised our first free E+SM Mix: Evolution for Your Ears, to satisfy this secret yearning. At the Evolver Social Movement, we believe in the concept of free - of sharing, foraging, scavenging, bittorenting, and all forms of open-source opportunism. We are, therefore, delighted to offer Evolution for Your Ears to you gratis, as a gift, with positively no strings attached, ever. In fact, we believe that everything should be free, from now until the end of time or the death of God, whichever comes first.

Russell Brand & Daniel Pinchbeck In Conversation

Recorded by Mitch Schultz, Russell Brand joined Daniel Pinchbeck, Graham Hancock and a galactivated group of Reality Sandwich retreat-goers at the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch in Utah for a frank and funny conversation covering a wide range of topics including the nature of contemporary media, quantum physics, the difference between psychedelics and "horrible drugs that nullify you", what comes after time, and the idea that people have been "coded" by society not to anticipate change.

2012: Time For Change – In Theaters Now!

2012: Time for Change presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee João Amorim, the film follows my quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink. The film features Sting, Ellen Page, David Lynch, Gilberto Gil, and many other artists and visionaries. The film opens in New York this weekend. Apologies if you don’t live in the area - we will soon offer video on demand and DVDs for sale. You can also work with us to organize a screening where you live...

Daniel Pinchbeck Returns with ‘Notes from the Edge Times’

NotesFromtheEdgeTimesI am delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Notes from the Edge Times. My new book collects essays written in the three-and-a-half years since the release of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, my last work. The book covers a wide range of subjects, some of them familiar to readers of my earlier works, and some of them ventures into strange new territories. In essence, however seemingly diverse, all of the chapters revolve around a single subject: How do we confront the current mega-crises of species extinction, global financial collapse, and resource depletion and initiate a new planetary culture that integrates the physical and psychic aspects of our being, while meshing harmonically with our planet’s fragile ecology?

If you enjoyed my other work, I hope you will take the plunge and pre-order this new book before its official release on October 14. Apparently, in today’s anxious publishing climate, pre-orders from Amazon and other sites determine how much attention the publisher’s sales and marketing departments will give to a book.… Read the rest
