    This book reveals a powerful view of humanity. I enjoyed a fasci

    This book reveals a powerful view of humanity. I enjoyed a fascinating journey with rich insights shared through the author's focused mystic lens. I was inspired as Anodea uncovered patterns in history in a unique and refreshing way.

    I was guided through dark periods of human development and atrocities yet the authors' guidance enabled me to see how we can rise from our common past to embrace a bright future brimming with new possibilities.

    Easy to read and understand, I felt that this book gives us clear information and wise council to help us navigate the opportunities of this very dynamic and exciting future we are co-creating. The textured insights into the character and development of humanity through different eras are presented artfully and with deep understanding.

    I appreciate the illumination of the masculine and feminine dance through time. Not only does the author reveal many fascinating twists and brilliant nuances that kept the book in my hands way past my usual bedtime, she also points the way to a brighter future that makes me want to get up early to be part of the unfolding possibilities.

    Be informed and inspired with this unique literary gem. Experience a rich bath in the historical, psychological and spiritual design of our present moment. Read this book and awaken to the grand unfolding that we are privileged to share. Thank You Anodea for this awesome offering.
