Shelves: self-help, new-age
Judith paints a grand arch or human evolution, from Neanderthal to present day, to facilitate her agenda of "the power of love". Leveraging the chakra system as well as classifications such as static feminine and dynamic masculine, Judith urges us to reconsider our role in society.

Although I relate with and ultimately support Judith's conclusions, it was very difficult to follow her logic and, at times, self-indulgent literary flair. In addition, when the conversation veered on the verge of prac

This book is an excellent overview of the development of human civilization from the point of view of the chakra system. Judith describes human history from this point of view, explaining how each era contributed to the awakening and development of each chakra in turn. She makes an excellent thesis outlining our need to awaken and live from the fourth chakra - the heart - and to finally resolve within ourselves and our culture the third chakra aspect of power (greed, domination, consumption). Th ...more

Insightful, thought provoking. There were times I agreed and times I disagreed; in the end and overall I'm glad that I read it. I liked the references to chakras for the times, and the visual graphs scattered in, it was interesting. The chapters were well named for the most part and it was easy to locate the individual topics. Although it can be hard to read at times, esp. if you are an emotional person like me; it got easier (for me), to read as I got farther into the chapters. And she did have ...more

I was asked to review this book on, so i'll just copy and paste:
I suppose I have grown used to relying on misrepresented accounts of collective History. The acknowledgment of my own deeply held but never questioned beliefs occurred to me while reading Waking the Global Heart. I now know how enlightening historical fact can be, and I have a stronger understanding of where Civilization is at and how we came to be here. Waking the Global Heart is an excellent book on gaining perspective.

Thought-provoking! There were some editorial bloopers here and there (or, am I becoming more detail-oriented and this is quite normal?). A therapists perspective on the global community...historical patterns of culture...a message to guide the present population on turning the tide of humanity to a culture based on understanding and compassion.
Travis Callender
Amazing, ambitious book that connects individual development as understood through the expansion of energy through the chakras, with the development of our human species. Starts with a brief overview of the historical development of mankind from 200 000 years ago through the present. Suggests changes mankind must now choose, if we are to mature as a species from adolescence to adulthood.

It is not an easy read, but it is a mind opening one. I took my time finishing it and have gone back and re-read a few parts. It is full of historical facts giving credence to its message. A reminder that the time is now and we need to act in order to save our mother the earth.

I suppose if the title of this book seems novel to you then there might be something of interest in here for you. I personally found it to be pretty lightweight and over-long. Might have made a good magazine essay.

Using the chakra paradigm Anodea sketches a compelling argument for human evolution and some suggested next-steps. A little light on detail, but absorbing in its vision.
