Is America’s historic polarization ultimately a spiritual crisis? Is the solution America’s Next Great Awakening?
If America is to realize its sacred purpose-unity in diversity-an inner awakening that spans belief systems and religions (including atheism), transcends ideologies, and honors scientific realities must emerge.
America’s Next Great Awakening tells fascinating stories from within the American soul-stories from our past, our myths, and our optimal futures, charting our way to resolving our current crises, preserving the American republic, and evolving into something more, towards a “more perfect union.”
History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme. Can America, once again, fulfill its mission as the global leader in conscious awareness, enlightenment, invention, and moral leadership?
