Visionary scientist Peter Russell is a leading thinker on consciousness and its role in human affairs. He discusses how we can awaken to the mounting planetary crisis while deepening our connection to inner tranquility. Amid fears of ecological catastrophe and political chaos, he has a message of sanity and hope.
Russell’s principal interests are the interface between science and consciousness studies, and the inner challenges of our times. He believes that to navigate our way safely through them we must listen to the wisdom of the world’s wisdom traditions, as well as to our current scientific understanding.
He coined the term “global brain” with his 1980’s bestseller of the same name in which he predicted the Internet and the impact it would have on humanity. He is the author of eight other books, including Waking Up in Time and From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness.
