The Next Age, Here and Now, by Daniel Pinchbeck

You've wanted it, waited for it, and now it's finally here! The RS anthology, Toward 2012: Perspectives on the Next Age (Tarcher/Penguin) is about to hit book stores near you. The anthology features many of your favorite contributors and articles from the site, covering a diverse array of topics forging the frontiers of conscioussness. It makes for a great post-holiday gift, both for yourself and your fellow aspiring evolutionaries. The release date is December 26 and you can help our transformational community make a buzz in the publishing world by pre-ordering the book. This lands us on the radar of book stores and distributors, as well as helping our chances of making "bestseller lists." Of course, you can pre-order from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Powell's Books. The best option is to order the anthology at your local shop (independent ideally) and see if they'll order for you, and maybe stock a few extra copies.

Here's what the cover jacket says about the book:

"This fresh and thought-provoking anthology draws together some of today’s most celebrated visionaries, thinkers, and pioneers in the field of evolving consciousness— exploring topics from shamanism to urban homesteading, the legacy of Carlos Castaneda to Mayan predictions for the year 2012, and new paths in direct political action and human sexuality.

"Toward 2012 highlights some of the most challenging, intelligent pieces published on the acclaimed website Reality Sandwich. It is coedited by Daniel Pinchbeck, the preeminent voice on 2012, and online pioneer Ken Jordan, and features original works from Stanislav Grof, John Major Jenkins, and Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky); interviews with Abbie Hoffman and artist Alex Grey; and a new introduction by Pinchbeck.

"Here are ideas that trace the arc of our evolution in consciousness, lifestyles, and communities as we draw closer to a moment in time that portends ways of living that are different from anything we have expected or experienced."
