Product description


In The Visionary Spirit, Mick Collins writes deeply about our neglected relationship to the dreaming realm. His book is a wonderful contribution to the activation of our total human potential for these troubled times. --Dr Arnold Mindell, Founder of Process Oriented Psychology, Author of Conflict: Phases, Forums and Solutions

Mick offers thoughtful and exciting ways of shaking us out of our ignorance and denial. He convincingly argues that the imaginal is indeed a pathway to revelation. He shows that the enlivened soul can cope with the crushing order of scientism by enabling us all to reflect and open up our discourse and contemplation. What is critical for his exposition is the startling relevance of his propositions as laid down in his introduction for contemporary society, and especially for the coming generation. He is right to emphasise the one-dimensional view that ushers us onto destructive tram rails where the destination is so deeply wounding for so very many. He is right to claim that we all have within us the roots of sustainability with their focus on sharing, on compassion, and on reciprocity. --Tim O Riordan, Emeritus Professor, School of Environmental Sciences University of East Anglia, Editor of Addressing Tipping Points for a Precarious Future

Mick Collins The Visionary Spirit is a transformational tour de force inviting readers to expand their ways of knowing beyond hyper-rationalist scientism and reconnect with the imaginal realm through dreams, visions and synchronicities. Our predominant paradigm has repressed other ways of knowing embodied in the mythic, sacred feminine and indigenous traditions. Mick gives readers the tools, not only through his exposition but also in reflections and exercises, to make a personal contribution to this redemptive quest by engaging in shadow work, recognising human moral evil in ecocide and accessing the daimon within in order to realise our individual and collective potential. His approach is one of re-imagination, deepening and resacralising our relationship to Nature. Importantly, he recognises the need to integrate the transpersonal with the transhuman in technologies of transformation that go beyond the robotic to a soul connection. It is clear that our overall human challenge is unprecedented and that our institutions are inadequate and unfit for purpose. As he inspiringly suggests, it is possible for us to exercise our visionary capacities to move from the Anthropocene to what he calls the Transformocene, but, as in all processes of birth and rebirth, the process will be intense on every level. --David Lorimer Programme Director, Scientific and Medical Network, Author of Whole in One
