This is an incredible and inspiring book. It took me a while to read it as some of the ideas were new to me, but it was totally worth it – the more I read the more all the pieces fitted together. It is full of astonishing, real-life stories which moved me to tears. It made me understand some of the deep human processes that are contributing to the current state of the planet, and the book is alive with creative ideas and inspirations for how we can come together to co-create an improved future for this planet. This book has made me think differently about my connection to the world, and I would highly recommend it. – Sophia from Amazon

In this fascinating blend of meticulously researched theory with direct experience, Mick Collins identifies how our global crisis is also a spiritual one. He suggests that the cultivation of our psycho-spiritual awareness can reveal new vistas, helping us engage in our transformative potential, both individually and collectively.
The Visionary Spirit offers a vision of hope which points to a new era of emancipatory living that Mick Collins calls the Transformocene Age. In a masterfully crafted manual, Mick Collins draws on the wisdom and knowledge of the imaginal realm, where dreams, myth and synchronicity help us to re-align to the natural world and to our innate wholeness. He describes atransformative process, from the Anthropocene and our current scale of planetary destruction, to a new era of wisdom and balance.
