James Redfield was 43 when he published The Celestine Prophecy. He has been keenly interested in human spirituality all of his life. Born on March 19, 1950, he grew up in a rural area near Birmingham, Alabama. From an early age, he was motivated by a need for clarity about spiritual matters. Brought up in a Methodist Church that was loving and community-oriented, he was nevertheless frustrated by a lack of answers to his questions about the true nature of spiritual experience.

As a young man, he studied Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen, while majoring in sociology at Auburn University.

He later received a Master’s degree in counseling and spent more than 15 years as a therapist to abused adolescents. During this time, he was drawn into the human potential movement and turned to it for theories about intuitions and psychic phenomena that would help his troubled clients. All along, Redfield was forming ideas that would eventually find their way into The Celestine Prophecy. In 1989, he quit his job as a therapist to write full-time, synthesizing his interest in interactive psychology, Eastern and Western philosophies, science, futurism, ecology, and history.

Using an adventure parable approach that has been called “part Indiana Jones, part Scott Peck,” The Celestine Prophecy created a model for spiritual perception and actualization that resonated with millions of people and focused on the mysterious coincidences that occur in each of our lives. Disdaining the spotlight himself, Redfield proclaimed in The Celestine Prophecy that each of us must intuit his own spiritual destiny.

As he writes in The Celestine Vision, his non-fiction title published in 1997, “The actual writing of The Celestine Prophecy occurred from January 1989 through April 1991 and was characterized by a sort of trial-and-error process. Quite amazingly, as I remembered earlier experiences and wrote about them, lacing them into an adventure tale, striking coincidences would occur to emphasize the particular points I wanted to make. Books would show up mysteriously, or I would have timely encounters with the exact sort of individuals I was attempting to describe. Sometimes strangers would open up to me for no apparent reason and tell me about their spiritual experiences.”

After the self-published book was brought to the attention of Warner Books through a perceptive sales rep, Warner Books bought the rights and published the hard cover edition in March 1994. The book quickly climbed to the #1 position on the New York Times bestsellers list. It remained on that list for more than three years, joined by The Tenth Insight, which built upon the Nine Insights revealed in the first novel. The two books spent a combined 74 weeks on the New York Times list, making James Redfield the best-selling hard cover author in the world in 1996, as cited in BP Report (January 1997).

In October 1997, James Redfield was awarded the highly prestigious Medal of the Presidency of the Italian Senate at the XXIII Pio Manzu International Conference in Rimini, Italy. Pio Manzu is a nongovernmental arm of the United Nations headed up by Mikhail Gorbachev.

In the spring of 2000, James joined Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat For Humanity, as the only two recipients of Humanitarian of the Year honors from their alma mater, Auburn University. Two months later, he was honored by the International New Thought Alliance with another Humanitarian of the Year award.

The Celestine series of adventure parables continued in 1999 with the publication of The Secret of Shambhala: In Search of the Eleventh Insight (Warner Books). Set in modern day Tibet, Redfield continued the inspiring journey of The Celestine Prophecy and The Tenth Insight—carrying readers to a new adventure in a sacred place where truths that can affect all of humanity await. In 2002, James joined author Michael Murphy and filmmaker Sylvia Timbers in a collaborative work entitled God and the Evolving Universe (J.P. Tarcher).

In March 2004, James Redfield was honored by the Wisdom Media Group with the World View Award for engaging the discussion on the nature of human existence and for his ongoing efforts and contributions to the bettering of humanity.

The fourth and final book in the Celestine series, The Twelfth Insight: The Hour of Decision, was published by Grand Central Publishing (formerly Warner books) in February, 2011.

The World We Have Created

The World We Have Created…

 

“The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking. If we want to change the world we have to change our thinking… no problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew.” ~ Albert Einstein

See The World Anew…

Systems and structures are failing. The world we created with the belief that “we are separate” from Creator, the Cosmos, Earth and all its inhabitants, including ourselves and the rest of Humanity, will no longer sustain us as a species. This mythology, this narrative, the story of separation, does not serve our one planetary body. Our future depends on a fundamental change to a new way of thinking—a whole-systems understanding of the conscious Universe that is more in alignment with the true nature of reality.
Saying that, a deeper level of our multidimensional reality exists beyond our ability to articulate. Once we wake to this reality, once we embody our inherent wholeness and understand ourselves “as consciousness itself” (Dr Jude Currivan), we begin to understand that the future is not fixed and we don’t have to create more of the same.

We Live in a Co-Creative, Responsive World of Possibilities

Let us wake to the truth of who we are and continually deepen our understanding of reality. Let us develop our innate capacity to participate in the unfolding of the conscious Universe and co-create a new healthy world built with heart and wholeness! We’ve got this!

“We don’t have consciousness. We are consciousness.” ~ Jude Currivan

Igniting Feminine Power

Igniting Feminine Power with Sherryl Lin

Recent events have stirred a fierce feminine power that has been dormant in many women. Women innately have the capacity for deep creative love and compassion, but also are feeling overwhelming grief, anger and even rage. How can we use these qualities to be a strong, creative force for good? How can we ignite women to participate in and even lead radical cultural change? Dr. Julie and Sherryl Lin muse into this topic and hopefully light a few fires.

Sherryl Lin has vivid memories of being a young child with a pure, loving heart who knew that everything was possible. She knew that she had intuitive abilities back then, but being that there was no one to explain to her what she was experiencing she shut that part of herself down. Sherryl Lin was always interested in spirituality and spent much of her early adult life looking for the next teacher or guru who, she was certain had the answers she was looking for. Everything shifted when, through a series of mystical, awakening experiences, Sherryl Lin began to remember her connection to Higher Levels of Consciousness and her abilities accelerated at an exponential rate.

Don’t Push Snooze!

Don’t Push Snooze with Sherryl Lin

Women are waking. Recent events have stirred a fierce feminine power, that in many women, has laid dormant within. What are women to do with mixed emotions of deep creative love and compassion, and overwhelming grief, anger, and even rage? Many are still gripped with the dark hidden forces of toxic shame. How can we use this time to be a strong, creative force for good? Sherryl Lin says “The alarm clock went off and we’re not pushing the snooze button this time. We are rising up, fully awake and ready to move into action.”

A New Story of Climate Change

A New Story of Climate Change with Charles Eisenstein

It’s time for a new vision that radically reframes our predicament and our approach to climate change. Charles Eisenstein argues that many of the proposed solutions to climate change rely on the same thinking that brought us to the crisis, and cannot move us forward. Eisenstein asserts the solutions lie in a new understanding of ourselves and our relationship to each other and the natural world—one that relies on what he calls “interbeing.”

Dreaming the World into Being

Dreaming the World into Being with Dr. Alberto Villoldo

The shamans of the Andes believe that each of us is given a fragment of the sacred dream to hold and express in our own way. When we forget that we carry an essential and necessary part of the sacred dream, we begin to spiral into disarray, our personal dreams become nightmares, and our lives collapse into chaos. Dr. Alberto Villoldo describes how we can get back in touch with the sacred dream, focus on what is real—and important—in our world, and become fully aware of the possibilities available to us for a better future.

By his mid-20s Alberto Villoldo was the youngest clinical professor at San Francisco State University. He was directing the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory, investigating how energy medicine could change the chemistry of the brain. One day in his laboratory, Alberto realized that his research had to get bigger instead of smaller, that he was looking out of the wrong end of the microscope. He needed to find a system larger than the neural networks of the brain. Many others were already studying the hardware – Alberto wanted to learn to program the mind to create psychosomatic health. He is the author of several books, including The Heart of the Shaman: Stories & Practices of the Luminous Warrior

Brain Creates Reality

Astonishing Science: Brain Creates Reality with Dawson Church

The idea that “thoughts become things” has become a meme in popular culture. It’s held as a firm proposition in metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe infinite powers to the mind. But are these claims scientifically accurate? What does the scientific evidence tell us about the scope of the human mind to transform thoughts into reality? Award-winning author Dawson Church presents the scientific explanation for manifestation and the law of attraction.
