In the mid-1990s, Apollo 14 astronaut and Institute of Noetic Sciences founder Dr. Edgar Mitchell gave three inspired presentations in New York City. For the first time these titles are now available to the public. They are: ´´Science and the Inner Experience´´ ´´Your Universe and You´´ ´´Global Mind Change´´ These phenomenal recordings, no less relevant now than they were then, emphasize the fact that humankind is facing the same issues today as it did at the end of the last millennium. Putting modern times in the broad context of science, history, and the precarious state of our environment, Dr. Mitchell echoes the sentiment that ´´God did not play dice´´ when he/she created the universe. He then stitches these concepts together into an easy-to-grasp and accessible series of presentations that can help listeners to better understand the nature of existence and start taking the steps needed to ensuring a globally sustainable future. 1.

We all live in a world that we fill up with our dreams and goals. When we are young we believe everything is possible, there are no limits to the dreams and goals we have or what we feel we are able to achieve. As we get older, often dreams and goals become more adapted to the ´´realities´´ of life and we begin to develop a more ´´realistic´´ consciousness, and thus develop what we believe to be more realistic goals. Many believe that this is normal - the longer you live, the more experience and knowledge you collect, and the narrower your frame of possibility becomes. Many would-be advisers caution others not to think too highly of themselves, or not to carry too lofty of a goal for fear of failure. While still others fear being ostracized for daring to think outside the box. This program will teach you to remove society´s limitations and open yourself to new paradigms and ways of thinking. It will introduce you to the real you, the one filled with unlimited potential. It will teach you to remove your reality straitjacket and move and think freely - without limits! You will learn how to control your subconscious to create new dreams - both big and small. You will learn how to manifest those dreams into reality on a daily basis and how to control your thoughts and limit the negative thinking forced upon you by society. You´ll discover how to improve relationships, lose weight, attract success and happiness, gain wealth and sense of worth, unleash your creative genius, reach important life goals, and clearly define what you want most in life! 1.

This book suggests that the solution to the current leadership crisis lies in leaders self-cultivation process, emanating from their deepest values and culminating in their contribution to the common good. Traditional approaches to leadership rarely provide any permeating or systematic framework to garner a sense of higher purpose or nurture deeper moral and spiritual dimensions of leaders. Learning to be an effective leader requires a level of personal transformation on the continuum of self, spirit, and service. Synthesizing the best of contemporary approaches to leadership in a holistic manner, this book presents a unique model of leadership that is built on the sound principles of Self-Motivation, Personal Mastery, Creativity and Flow, Emotional Intelligence, Optimal Performance, Appreciative Inquiry, Authentic Leadership, Transformational Leadership, Positive Psychology, Moral Philosophy, and Wisdom Traditions of the world. This broad interdisciplinary approach is well-suited to effectively address the multifaceted issues faced by contemporary organizations and leaders. It will be of great interest to graduate business and organizational leadership students and faculty as well as corporate leaders.
