Earth scientist and author Gregg Braden offers a stunning theory: that our planet has now entered a rare geophysical phase predicated millennia ago by ancient cultures across the globe, a “Shift of the Ages”, that is transforming your consciousness even as you read this. He shares new scientific research essential to understanding the prophecies of the Essenes, Hopis, Mayans, Egyptians, and others. Hidden within these ancient teachings is a universal set of sacred technologies meant specifically for us at this crucial point in human history. The secret of these tools is learning to see how the outer world mirrors the inner conditions of our consciousness. With this knowledge, we can transcend ordinary awareness, align ourselves with the external forces around us, and directly participate in the great challenges that lie ahead.
