Reviews

"A New Republic of the Heart should be required reading for all humans over the age of sixteen."
--Stanley Krippner, PhD, coauthor of Personal Mythology

"What we have here is possibly the finest example of the making of the possible human, and with this, the development of a possible world."
--Jean Houston, PhD, author of A Passion for the Possible

"Terry Patten has woven together strands from evolutionary neuroscience, deep ecology, integral theory, and spiritual wisdom to offer a practical path forward out of humanity's current morass. Fascinating, fast-moving, and heartfelt, this book is a gem."
--Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha's Brain and Hardwiring Happiness

"Patten clarifies how our wicked problems require us to grow beyond debate, one-upmanship, and other non-communication, to talk and listen in new ways. He's right on the mark--we must reknit our social fabric--our collective future requires it."
--Joan Blades, cofounder of MoveOn.org and Living Room Conversations

"Superb, exciting, sane, and enlightening--a social activism that is also personal, emotional, spiritual, ecological, relational, and that points toward the very leading edge of evolution itself."
--Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision and Grace and Grit
