COVID-19 and Humanity’s Spiritual Awakening
The emergence of COVID-19 turned the world upside down causing mass causalities and sickness, economic ruin, and social unrest in the streets. However, despite the pandemic’s tragic and chaotic nature, the virus has also been a catalyst for the spiritual awakening of humanity on a scale not seen at any time since possibly World War II. In COVID-19 and Humanity’s Spiritual Awakening, Forrest Rivers shows the many ways in which the virus has served to awaken the inborn seeds of truth, wisdom, and the acknowledgment of our common roots as one human family.

“Forrest Rivers comes with a most timely message. His book is so passionate and so clear in the formulation of its vision. Covid-19 is seen as a thundering wake-up call. As the ordeal that was needed to expose what no longer works on our planet.
He speaks a message of hope for humanity at large. He brings together the wisdom of the native elders and the mystics and teachers of all traditions to prepare for a future in which deep spirituality linked to a real democracy and more fulfilling economy could finally evolve.
The whole book is full of delightful and moving stories from the author’s own life. He introduces us to some of his wise teachers and people who have already started to implement healthy change in their lives as a result of Covid-19. He encourages us to harness our power to shape our own destiny.
Seldom has a book touched me so deeply in its mix of compassion, authenticity,
and forward looking while fully honoring the world’s wisdom traditions. It lays out how the darkness of suffering has a way of pushing humanity into the light of new beginnings, if we so choose.
I love the sincerity and the down to earth reality of this invitation. ”
The Hippie Revival and Collected Writings
The Hippie Revival is a collection of writings (essays, reflections and poetry) that center around the resurgence of the hippie counterculture. Like the original hippies of the 1960s and ’70s, Forrest Rivers shares with us his vision of creating a spiritual society that rests on the core values of peace, unity and love. Additional themes that are also addressed in these writings include: the sacredness of the natural world, the commune as an alternative model of social organization, the intersection of social revolution and spirituality and a questioning of the meaning behind “progress”. These writings are also something of an homage to the early hippies who dared to dream of a better, more peaceful world. So sit back, enjoy and allow this book to uplift your spirit!
