  • Myth of the Great Ending
  • by Joseph Felser
  • Price: $19.95

From Christian believers in the Apocalypse and the Rapture to New Age enthusiasts of prophecies concerning the year 2012, Doomsday lore has been a part of culture, a myth that colors how we perceive the world. In The Myth of the Great Ending author Joseph Felser blends history, psychology, metaphysics, and story to explore why we remain obsessed with Doomsday myths even when they fail to materialize. Connecting insights from Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, Black Elk, Wovoka, Itzhak Bentov, Jane Roberts, Seth, Hermann Hesse, Ingo Swann, David Bohm, Fred Alan Wolf, J. Allen Boone, William James, and Robert Monroe, he shows us that linear time is a lie, that nature’s rhythms are cyclic, and that we are all part of one consciousness. Our task is to listen to nature’s voice and pay heed to our own dreams—including visions, intuitions, and instinctive promptings—to create a future of our own choosing, a beginning rather than an ending.
