Why has the most innovative of species become so dangerous? The answer, suggests Peter Russell, lies in humanity's accelerating pace of development. However fast the pace of change may be today, it will be much faster in the years to come, bringing ever more rapid scientific and technological advances. But ever-accelerating change also creates stress on the systems involved&mdassh;personal, social, and planetary. We are heading into a future with technology beyond our dreams, but in a world that is breaking at the seams.Elf Rock Productions. $11.95 ISBN: 978-192858620
LETTING GO OF NOTHING
Peter Russell reframes letting go as letting in and letting be and applies this approach to letting go of judgements and grievances, our fears and our attachments, unhealthy emotions and fixed beliefs, our ego and our assumptions as to what will make us happy. He offers some remarkably easy methods of accepting, acknowledging, recognizing, and even befriending what we tend to run from. Along the way, he explores the essence of forgiveness, the value of kindness, and the perennial question of "Who am I?"" And offers simple practices that remove the veils to the peace, joy, and love that are our true nature,
FROM SCIENCE TO GOD
From Science to God is the story of Peter Russells lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness. Blending physics, psychology, and philosophy, he leads us to a new worldview in which consciousness is as fundamental to the cosmos as space, time, and matter.
Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics -- one in which science and spirit no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light. From Science to God invites us to cross that bridge to a radically different, and ultimately healing, view of ourselves and the universe -- one in which God takes on new meaning, and spiritual practice a deeper significance.
WAKING UP IN TIME
In this thoroughly rewritten, newly illustrated edition of his classic work, The White Hole in Time, Peter Russell calls for a spiritual renaissance in the face of the dangers of ever-accelerating change. Here is an extraordinary vision for the new millennium, one that integrates the evolving nature of civilization with our timeless quest for harmony and inner peace.

THE GLOBAL BRAIN
Originally published in 1982 as "The Awakening Earth" in the UK and "The Global Brain" in the US, this third edition of Peter Russell's classic work has been updated and a new Foreword added. Building on Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis, it shows how our global linking may be leading us toward an evolutionary breakthrough as significant as the emergence of life some three and a half million years ago. Heralded as a major leap in Western thinking, this book presents an empowering view of our future. It throws new light on our relationship with ourselves, each other, and the planet.
THE CREATIVE MANAGER: Finding Inner Wisdom in Uncertain Times (Co-written with Roger Evans).

This handbook for brain users sets out the brain's structure and development; examines its function and potential, discussing memory, imagery, mnemonics, the holographic theory of mind, reading, study skills, and note-taking. It gives detailed information on mind maps—why they work, how to construct them, and how to use them.

German: Der Direkte Weg
A new translation with Alistair Shearer of selections from the nine principal Upanishads— one of the cornerstones of Indian philosophy. Passed down by word of mouth for five thousand years, they teach of an absolute and unified field of intelligence that underlies and permeates all creation. This divine ground is our own nature, and to bring our lives into conscious harmony with it is the ultimate purpose of human existence. The Upanishads make the mind soar and the heart sing, and point the soul to freedom.

WISDOM IN ESSENCE - CD, GUIDED MEDITATION
A 30-minute guided meditation, using Hemi-Sync brain wave technology, guiding listeners to step behind the everyday ego-mind, to access the deeper wisdom of the pure self—our inner essence. The guidance focuses on issues in the listeners lives to help them discover new ways of perceiving the situations with which they are faced.
"Just let go" we are often told, yet letting go never seems easy. This is often because we treat it as something we need to do; but letting go is an "undoing", a releasing of the "holding on."
In this workshop Peter Russell explores: The nature of attachment and non-attachment. The natural wisdom of the Self, and how to use it for guidance. He takes listeners through three meditation exercises designed to help them let go of a fixed way of seeing a situation, become fully aware of the present moment, and use their inner knowing to open to an ever greater ease.
