Human Transformation To Re-align with the Natural World

Author, Mick Collins, shares a brief introduction to his latest book, The Visionary Spirit: Awakening to the Imaginal Realm in the Transformocene.

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 a transformative process, from the Anthropocene and our current scale of planetary destruction, to a new era of wisdom and balance.

Drawing inspiration from diverse fields such as the sacred feminine, indigenous wisdom, daimons and near-death experiences, this book is enlivened by fascinating, real-life stories of people who have engaged in deep processes of psycho-spiritual change. The Visionary Spirit is a radical manifesto for soulful and creative living. At the end of each chapter there is an exercise, providing opportunities for experiential reflection, aiding the reader on their personal journey.

This is not just a deep exploration about human transformation, it is a radical proposition for new ways of living creatively, spiritually, harmoniously and responsibly on planet Earth.

The Visionary Spirit is published in March. It is available for preorder now, and if you buy before 28th February, you'll get it for £15 which is 20% off. Follow the link for further information:

Humans have been affecting the "natural" world since we became humans - before actually. All species alter the environment. The difference is that we do it massively AND we are aware (sometimes at least) of what we are doing.

Humans can - and often have - lived sustainably with nature. We have changed it, sometimes for the better. The idea of calling it all "damage" or measuring our "footprints" as something to be minimized is incorrect. We might want to have a very large - and beneficial - footprint. Things we do to improve the biotic community are good.

As the essay writer at I admit sustainable does not mean no change. It means predictable and beneficial change. There are human influenced systems that have been sustainable over centuries. They are good. We need feel no guilt for changing "nature" if we have created sustainability
