MAX IGAN at the Open Mind Conference 2014, Copenhagen.

“Reclaiming the Earth – steps towards a collective awakening”

Maxwell Igan has spent over 25 years researching the topics he covers in the many radio broadcasts and videos that he has produced.

Covering a broad range of subjects, Max Igan never fails to inspire with his concise and lucid summation of the shared global situation. He is a musician, activist and radio host on The People’s Network. He is the founder of TheCrowHouse.com and Director of the film “Trance-formation”.

We all live encapsulated in a control grid that encompasses all our activities, during the course of our whole life.

How did this control system come into being? And what steps can be taken in order to emancipate ourselves from its clutches? What would happen if we failed to rise to this challenge?

The lecture covers a wide range of topics, from education, health, the destruction of the Amazonian rainforests to Max Igan’s recent trip to the Gaza strip.

Max Igan will lead us through a powerful, hard hitting, not-to-be-missed presentation. From the energetic and vibratory nature of matter and consciousness, to the contemporary influence of corporate entities and the irrefutable problems that mankind faces in the age of information, Max Igan connects the dots, providing an enlightening perspective of how to move forwards towards a collective awakening.

Wisdom Books: Rediscovering Plato by Norman D. Livergood

Rediscovering_Plato_Norman_Livergood

The Greek thinker Plato (428-348 BCE) speaks trenchantly to us today about twenty-first century barbarism,” writes author Norman D. Livergood in the introduction to Rediscovering Plato and the Mystical Science of Dialectic. “No other single thinker offers us the weapons to defeat contemporary oppression and ignorance.”A demonic cabal has seized power and imposed a fascistic dictatorship on the United States,” writes Livergood. “It is only when teachings like Plato’s dialogues become current again in the West that we will be able to rise above barbarity and depravity to a more enlightened existence.”Not only can Plato teach us how to withstand a constant barrage of propagandized power-plays, but Plato also provides esoteric Perennialist instructions for realizing our spiritual potential, which is even more important than struggling against despotism and benightedness. Plato helps us to rescue ourselves not only from political-economic-religious tyrants, but also from our own tyrannies: our mindless self-indulgence, our acquiescence to ignorance and self-satisfaction.

Wisdom Books: The Ascent of Humanity by Charles Eisenstein

the_ascent_of_humanity

Charles Eisenstein explores the history and potential future of civilization, tracing the converging crises of our age to the illusion of the separate self. In this landmark book, Eisenstein explains how a disconnection from the natural world and one another is built into the foundations of civilization: into science, religion, money, technology, medicine, and education as we know them. As a result, each of these institutions faces a grave and growing crisis, fueling our near-pathological pursuit of technological fixes even as we push our planet to the brink of collapse.

Fortunately, an Age of Reunion is emerging out of the birth pangs of an earth in crisis. As our old constructs of self and world dissolve in crisis, we are entering a new narrative of interbeing, a more expansive sense of self, and a more ecological relationship to nature. Our darkest hour bears the possibility of a more beautiful world—not through the extension of millennia-old methods of management and control but by fundamentally reimagining ourselves and our systems. Breathtaking in its scope and intelligence, The Ascent of Humanity is a remarkable book showing what it truly means to be human.
