Surviving Doom


Stormbird’s prices are in A$

The world is a complicated place, reigned by chaos. Politics has become frightening, climate change is worsening, and we’re mourning the loss of the natural world. It is easy to succumb to feelings of powerlessness and doom, but creating a better future for us and our children is achievable if we listen to our innate voice. Psychologist and transpersonal counsellor, Paul W. Blythe, Ph.D., shares how each of us can reclaim a life of happiness, compassion, and health in our current times. Referring to the teachings of visionaries, Paul explains why individual efforts are needed to match these challenges, and how we will not only survive, but bloom.

What if we could see that people aren’t so different from ourselves? What if we stopped judging others and didn’t take everything so personally? What if we could “know” at an experiential level that everyone yearns to do the right thing for their loved ones, their friends, and their community? What if each parent, sister, brother, partner and friend taps into an innate wisdom which impacts their relationships and ripples out into the world?

Our brain areas unwittingly combine to drive our actions, thoughts, and reactions that are eroding beneath denial and a sense of doom. Without a countervailing force, we are following our brains, which are leading us, as individuals, society and as a species to devastating consequences.

Surviving Doom: Crucial Skills for a World in Chaos reveals the path that leads to truth and placing our own needs and those of all mankind on equal footing. By undoing years of indoctrination and beliefs that hold us back and separate us from others, we can not only overcome our sense of doom, but create a better future for everyone.
