The Passionate Mind Revisited
Expanding Personal & Social Awareness
"[The Passionate Mind Revisited] reads like a survival guide for the new world order—a manual on how to live consciously and well in a world that seems to be collapsing around us....It is also a well-reasoned exploration of the human condition." —Yoga Journal, 2/10

Marin Independent Journal interview with Joel and Diana
The Passionate Mind Revisited takes us on a liberating inner journey that can transform the way we look at ourselves and the world.
In this major new work from two of our brightest minds, Joel Kramer and Diana Alstad boldly address the idea that we are a species at risk and that we must pass through a process of 'conscious social evolution' if we are to survive. The authors assert that many of our social problems are products of our limited worldviews, beliefs, and identities and that we must understand and break through this lifetime of conditioning to see our lives and the world in a new way.
