Overview

For the Earth to move to the next vibration, says Richard Grossinger, consciousness must change in profound ways, and these involve core elements of humanity: evil, grief, bliss, and compassion. 2013 locates these elements in often unlikely places and seeks their nature and capacity for change. With playfulness and precision, 2013 tackles the questions of creation and existence in their twenty-first-century incarnation. In these intellectual field notes, the author’s absorbing style combines memoir with scientific deconstruction, metaphysical ontology, and experimental prose that recalls the Black Mountain school to draw transcendental insight from the ephemeral space-time we call daily life. Moving with equal ease between matters cosmic and earthly, Grossinger details existence as an exhilarating adventure always pushing us toward a higher state in this wide-ranging, humorous, and heartfelt book. Including an informal course in psychic development, 2013 sheds light on the ephemera of planets and iPods, politics and Zen, Buddy Holly and road trips in its study of the elements of psychic development that could transform humankind and the Earth.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Richard Grossinger is one of the most original spiritual writers of our time. Gifted with an extraordinary range of knowledge, a passionately idiosyncratic mind, and a style whose electric elegance married with profound wisdom challenges all of us to go deeper into the adventure of transformation that our time is demanding. This book will open up the essential questions of the Earth to all those who are lucky enough to read it and will raise the level of conversation about them to a new height of complexity, passion, and action. All of Richard’s work is fascinating and inspired; but this book is his most important yet. I cannot recommend it highly enough.”
—Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism and The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi

“Deep within everyone lies a longing for a handbook of the future, an internal wisdom that helps us navigate the ever-expanding unknown. If read carefully and contemplatively, this astounding document will facilitate your joyfully expanding into the future rather than fearfully contracting away from it. The World-Spirit is grateful.”
—Robert Sardello, author of Love and the Soul: Creating a Future for Earth

“I think 2013 is fantastic. These adjectives and phrases came to my mind: brilliant, intimate, humorous, erudite, sophisticated. Grossinger has a great synthetic mind and is a master of poetic prose and imaginative, free-ranging scholarship.”
—Michael J. Harner, author of The Way of the Shaman

“In 2013, Grossinger illuminates the real-life experience and implications of the techniques and systems he studies; and even more importantly, he models, with kindness and generosity, how to engage life maturely and fearlessly. Mixing honesty, self-reflection, fascination, and openness to adventure, he meets life in a way that can give each of us everything to look forward to now, in 2012, and beyond.”
—John Friedlander, author of Basic Psychic Development: A User’s Guide to Auras, Chakras, & Clairvoyance

“The latest addition to Grossinger’s unique genre, the ‘poetic textbook,’ inspires us to view the panorama of our times inside the details of our lives and the healing story within the history: outrageously vast yet grounded and humane.”
—Frederick Baker, coauthor of Conscious Conception: Elemental Journey Through the Labyrinth of Sexuality

“In 2013, Richard Grossinger delivers a deep and complex, endlessly ranging examination of where we are now, displaying many moods, delving into many worlds. It may seem at odds with the zeitgeist and therefore be imperfectly noticed by those demanding something they can text to their brains, ‘Get to the point, will you?’ But this brilliant and luminous book echoes the play of all of our minds and is to be treasured.”
—Michael Brownstein, author of World on Fire

In his latest book, 2013, Richard Grossinger, America’s great unsung cultural prophet, melds his personal explorations and cosmic reflections to elevate prophecy to a more serving and liberating role.”
—Dharma Café

"A fascinating commentator on the way the world is and will be in the near future written with candour, honestly and an unashamed lack of apology for telling it the way it is."
—My Spirit Radio
