Breaking News: February 2023

Dr. Ervin Laszlo appears again on the Watkin’s 2023 list of the 100 most spiritually influential living people.

He is also the subject of the PBS documentary ‘The Life of a Modern Genius.’

Not bad for a philosopher, a systems scientist, a concert pianist and a child prodigy who made the decision as a young man to change his life direction from music to science.

In Episode 2 of the Visioneers Extraordinary Wisdom in Waging Peace series, Ervin Laszlo takes off from where Willis Harman left us in Episode 1, calling for a global mind change — a change in the awareness of the beliefs and values that guide how we collectively think and feel and therefore behave.

Laszlo, living in a more responsive moment to the required change, calls for the development of planetary consciousness that moves our awareness beyond a focus on ourselves to see ourselves as part of something larger:

  • To understand the oneness of humanity
  • To hold a reverence for all life, not just human life
  • Where ethics, fairness and right action play a central role

He tells us that our current multicrises emergencies mean
“We cannot stay as we are: we must change”

What will likely become Ervin Laszlo’s most important book, The Upshift, was published in 2022, the year of his 90th birthday. He has given humanity a new word and concept in all the languages in which it will be translated.

He says we are at a bifurcation point, where we must urgently choose a new path that upshifts to positive solutions that move in synchrony with a higher evolutionary level, and so invent a different future for ourselves and the generations that follow.

Ervin Laszlo is introduced in this episode by Visioneers Visionary Leader David Lorimer, a most knowledgeable and consummate interviewer who asks such insightful, thoughtful and sensitive questions, you feel as if you are asking them yourself, and that the answers are for you to consider in the application of this wisdom to your own life and contribution.
