Mass Shift in Consciousness Now

Paul Hawken's 2008 book Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Social Movement in History Is Restoring Grace, Justice, and Beauty to the World shows that organizations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice comprise the largest movement on Earth. This movement has no name, center, or a leader and is ignored by the corporate media. It is organic, self-organized, with millions of people committed to making the world a better place.


Hawken compares this gathering of forces to the human immune system. Just as antibodies rally when the body is under threat, people are joining to defend life on Earth. Hawken assesses the role indigenous cultures are playing in the quest for ecological responsibility and economic fairness. He also presents an unprecedented map to this new "social landscape".

This mass shift in consciousness is discussed in the Consciousness Section of this website. In 1980, when author Barbara Mark Hubbard ran for the Vice Presidency of the U.S., she created the Wheel of Co-Creation to capture the innovations of this mass movement. The Wheel was adopted by the Thrive Movement in 2011 as its Solutions Sector Wheel.
