No Ordinary Time: The Rise of Spiritual Intelligence and Evolutionary Creativity

 
A Book of Hours for a Prophetic Age
 
Jan Phillips’ Book of Hours is a tapestry of threads from the arts, science, sacred texts and her own mystical poetry. It is the story of one woman’s journey from Catholicism to a new cosmology of global communion and co-creation. It is Rumi meets-Teilhard,  Catherine of Siena meets Dorothy Day—a compelling illustration of how spiritual practice leads to heightened creativity leads to inspired evolutionary action. It’s like being picked up by the shirtsleeves and carried to the mountaintop. It doesn’t hurt but the view most certainly changes.

We are the myth-makers and co-creators of the 21st century, the prophets and writers of new sacred texts.  Growing up spiritually is a requirement of us this hour. There is no Geppetto God out there pulling strings. We are the vessels of the Divine, agents of Supreme Intelligence, neutral cells of our home planet, and it is our job now to call God home, to tend to the kingdom that is all around us, and to create stories an cultures of hope and compassion. – taken from the Introduction
