A Letter to My daughters

978-1947003934 |  Trade paperback  |  4 x 6  | List: $12.95

Before you were born, I went on a journey that would take me around the world completely, a spherical, three-dimensional journey. A journey of dirt and blood. A journey of taste and bodily sensation. A journey of texture. I am writing you because I want you to live in this world, to feel it in its fullness, its depth. I want you to fall in love with the world, flawed and sorrowful as it is. Your lives and the world as a whole—these are indistinguishable to me—depend on this.

“Richards writes skillfully and soulfully about the most pressing issues of our times, and the deeper crisis out of which they have emerged. Drawing from a vast trove of knowledge about the world’s religious, mystical, and philosophical traditions, he extracts the most valuable gems, polishes them with the revolutionary insights of modern science, and forges a radiant, new cosmosophy—a universal wisdom that honors the wisdom of the universe. The beauty of this mythos is that it, like the cosmos, is not static but dynamic, inviting our active participation and imaginative engagement.This book succeeds in instilling reverence for a living universe and hope for a dying planet. May Cosmosophia blossom and flourish in the hearts of all beings!” —Darrin Drda, author of The Four Global Truths

The Great Reimagining

by Theodore Richards

“This book is a veritable tour de force offering a critical commentary on today’s tumultuous cultural scene.  Placing our times in the context of apocalypse or end times seems strikingly well timed given the current goings on in the dark Trump/Bannon political moment.  While unveiling causes for our dilemmas and feelings of powerlessness, Richards also provides ways to revelation and empowerment and therefore to hope.  He covers themes such as the end of capitalism, the farming revolution, the tech revolution, education at the edge of the world, religion, science and spirituality in 12 chapters that are critically thought out, succinctly written, convincingly argued, and bearing a visionary perspective that borders on the prophetic.  This book provides a vision for twenty-first century activists that could match that offered by Herbert Marcuse to the 1960’s generation calling as it does for a spiritual revolution that re-connects psyche and cosmos, cultural criticism and a preference for community over individualism.”

Mathew Fox, author of Original Blessing

Creatively Maladjusted

by Theodore Richards

Education is the subject of much public debate. Politicians and bureaucrats, educators and parents, students and concerned citizens all have an interest—and a stake—in the way we educate our children. But while much is said about the subject, seldom are the more profound, difficult questions ever asked, questions that require not only changing the way schools are organized and classes are taught, but also require a radical transformation of the very concept of education in the modern world. Creatively Maladjusted: The Wisdom Education Movement Manifesto approaches the problem of education from just such a radically new perspective.
