California Author Releases Book for the New Age Market, Worldshift Happens! Facing Down the Fear, Waking Up the Mind

Author Carolyn North is pleased to announce the release of her new book, Worldshift Happens! Facing Down the Fear, Waking Up the Mind. The book addresses the challenges of our changing times through personal stories, humor and suggestions of how to keep on keeping on.

Berkeley, CA, October 26, 2012 --( Worldshift Happens! is about having the courage to change when it is time to change.

Carolyn North believes our world is at a turning point now. How, then, shall we face our fears and open our minds and hearts to new ways of thinking and being? What might our lives look like when we do?

This book explores, through story, some new ways of: framing how we see the world; facing the realities of aging and death; imagining the lives of a fictional family of survivors of the Great Shift in the year 2125. They live hard and they live well. They have had to learn from the mistakes of their forebears, have survived despite great hardship, and they know how to turn adversity into an adventure. They live a life that might be called "utopian."

Buddhist teacher Joanna Macy says, "This is a rare, brave and most original book. I am honored you have shared it with me...I applaud the idea of conveying possible future scenarios in story form rather than dull expository projections..."
