Shift Network CEO Stephen Dinan’s New Book: Sacred America, Sacred World

By Stephen Dinan
CEO of The Shift Network

This year, I’m giving birth to the most important book of my life, one 10 years in the making....

Sacred America, Sacred World: Fulfilling Our Mission in Service to All offers a visionary roadmap for evolving beyond partisan bickering into fulfilling our sacred mission.

It’s full of inspiring stories, practical ideas and visionary solutions.

It’s about how we build a movement for a next “American Evolution.”

And it’s coming out July 5th because it’s about going to America’s next level as a country (you can find details on how to order it below).

I must say that I’ve been totally blown away by the rave reviews so far!

People have called it "the first great manifesto of the evolutionary, trans-partisan political movement," "the blueprint and the foundation for the next level of the American Dream," "our survival manual," and a "remarkable achievement."

For more than a decade, I have promoted the most important teachers, pioneers, and conscious leaders I can find who are shifting our planet forward....

Now it’s my turn to step forward with my deepest message and all the wisdom that I can muster, in service to our evolution as a country, which is important not just for us but for the world....

Sacred America, Sacred World by Stephen Dinan

 

On my book tour, I’m going to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention, then Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention, then The Shift Network is hosting a large, online American Citizens Summit in August to offer better transpartisan pathways forward....

I want to send a strong message to the powers that be that it’s time for a new America, one that is peaceful, respectful, and based in reverence for all of life.

The truth is that America has gotten a bit stuck in partisan warfare, cynicism, greed, and overconsumption...

But, I know in my heart that we are made of finer stuff, with a higher mission to lead the way to a beautiful world that works for all, one that is healthy, peaceful, sustainable and prosperous.

This is in our founding “codes” as well as the leading edge of our culture. In my book, I show how we can discover higher, “transpartisan” solutions in areas from peacebuilding to campaign finance reform, from micro-finance to the path to a zero carbon economy.

Most of all, I call us into sacred citizenship and show how we can create lasting change.

I aim for it to be a powerful political expression of our larger human potential movement — an injection of deeper wisdom at a time when our country really needs it.

In this way, I want to become an ambassador for YOU and all those like us who are working to evolve our culture.

PS - When you purchase, you’ll also receive access to a special American Evolution series with thought leaders such as Andrew Harvey, Gregg Braden, Tim Kelley, and many more, all sharing how we can create an evolutionary movement that really shifts our country.

Also, I’m blessed to have gotten great testimonials about the book from across the full spectrum of political positions, from progressives to leading Republicans, because i focus on what unites us:

"When divisive and mean-spirited politics occupy so much of our public conversation, it’s easy to become cynical and resigned. But we are capable of something better, we crave something better, and in his sparkling new book Stephen Dinan has given us a vision of how we might actually achieve something far better. He outlines a clear path toward healing the rifts that have torn our society asunder, appreciating our differences, and uniting in common cause to create a world worth passing on to our children."
— John Robbins, author, Diet For A New America; President, The Food Revolution Network.

"Major evolutionary changes are looming on America's political horizon, and this book is the first I've seen to announce them so clearly."
—Rich Tafel, Founder, Log Cabin Republicans

"The difference between a cockeyed optimist and a visionary is that one encourages us to sit back while the other inspires us to commit to a vision and take action. In Sacred America, Sacred World Stephen Dinan offers us a highly compelling blueprint to engage in deep and totally achievable global transformation. This is a visionary work of the highest order."
—James O'Dea, former Director of Amnesty International, D.C.; author, The Conscious Activist

Sacred America is a crash course at the intersection of politics, spirituality, and citizens. Like the three-legged stool, all are required for the United States to fulfill our potential. We, as citizens, are at a crossroads. Will we pick up the banner of our responsibility and thrive, or allow the degradation to continue? To choose wisely, start with reading this book.”
—Debilyn Molineaux, President, Coffee Party USA

Sacred America, Sacred World provides an unprecedented vision of global possibilities, based in a frank, but balanced historical background of the greatness, as well as the unhealed wounds of America. This national and global vision is rooted in the spiritual awareness that we are all members of one human family. This includes a fundamental need to fully understand and address the genocide of Indigenous Peoples, as well as honoring their unique and invaluable contributions to our collective future.”
—Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr., member of the Dakota and Chickasaw Nation; Global Trustee, United Religions Initiative; and Chairman of the Four Worlds International Institute

"If, as the Bible says, 'where there is no vision, the people perish,' then this book is our survival manual. It provides exactly the vision we, the people, have been searching for."
—Mark Gerzon, author, The Reunited States of America
