Peter Russell : 2012 & A Global Awakening

Peter Russell, MA, DCS, is the author of 10 books and producer of two award-winning videos. His work integrates Eastern and Western understandings of the mind, exploring their relevance to the world today and to humanity’s future. He has degrees in theoretical physics, experimental psychology, and computer science from the University of Cambridge, England.

In India, he studied meditation and Eastern philosophy and, on his return, took up research into the psychophysiology of meditation at the University of Bristol. He was one of the first people to introduce human potential seminars into the corporate field, and for 20 years worked with major corporations on creativity, learning methods, stress management, and personal development. His principal interest is the inner challenges of the times we are passing through. His books include The Global Brain, Waking Up in Time, and the most recent, From Science to God.

2012 marks the end of the Mayan calendar's 5125-year cycle, leading many to prophecy this as a time of great change—for some the end of Western civilization, for others a time of transformation and renewal. Whatever may or may not happen in 2012, it is clear that we are living through a critical period of human history, and the need for a widespread shift in human thinking and values is becoming increasingly apparent.

From this perspective, 2012 is a symbol of the times we are passing through. It represents the temporal epi-center of a cultural earthquake, whose reverberations are getting stronger day by day.

What do we need to adapt to these challenging times? Peter Russell teaches that we need to rebuild our inner resources. On The 2012 MindShift, he guides you through five simple meditations designed to help you stay grounded, nurture your resilience and remain composed—no matter what the tides of change may bring.

  • Presence: Finding peace in the moment
  • Befriending discomfort: Working with difficult feelings and rigid attitudes
  • Inner wisdom: Tapping the guidance that awaits within you
  • Loving kindness: Developing greater compassion and community
  • Clarifying purpose: Strengthen your life's vision

Hey there. I just found your site. I love the star-field background and colours. Your positive take on 2012 is refreshing and desperately needed when most people are looking for doom and gloom.

I'll be sure to visit again and review your site at Beyond 2012 HQ

thanks for permission. I am building the facebook page.

Now, I am also about to print the book (Global Brain Awakens) in Farsi, to make it available to readers in Iran. Could I have your permission to use the image for book cover? Who made that image I wonder?

with thanks again,

hello again,

I'll be seeing a designer to make the cover of "Global Brain Awakens" in Farsi fairly soon. Do you think I could use the same image (people dancing around the planet) for the cover of this book?

in gratitude,

hello there again. I am just sitting with my friend (graphic designer) looking at the picture above to use for 'Global Brain' book cover in Farsi. We need to have the 300 dpi version of the image. Could you tell us where/how we could get hold of the image? Does anyone have copyright of the image? Do we need to clarify copyright before going to print?

with thanks,
