Just as the Transition Handbook of 2008, provided specific strategies for addressing these changes logistically, Navigating The Coming Chaos, provides a toolkit of emotional and spiritual preparation for an uncertain future. It offers us an opportunity to step across an evolutionary threshold in order to become a new kind of human being living in conscious self-awareness of our intimate connection with all life in the universe. Deepening the work begun in Sacred Demise, Carolyn Baker has assembled - and life tested - a rich compendium of tools for the inner warrior preparing to meet civilization's collapse with inner strength, purpose, and presence. In times like these that try our souls, embarking on the deep self-reflection invited by this book will be as essential as any practical preparations for the "Long Emergency." Janaia Donaldson, Co-Producer and Host of Peak Moment TV Navigating the Coming Chaos is Carolyn Baker's latest, and most important work. As we face up to the reality of collapse, the difference between those former citizens who cope and those who don't may well be a simple case of who has taken heed of the lessons contained within these priceless pages. Keith Farnish, author of TIME'S UP: AN UNCIVILIZED SOLUTION TO A GLOBAL CRISIS and manager of The Earth Blog Use this book like you would a longtime friend who is willing to listen to you thoroughly but will still ask you the tough questions. It is an invaluable tool for people who are committed to creating a fulfilling life no matter what the future brings. Andre Angelantoni, Founder of Post Peak Living

    The four sections of the book give the reader a feel for the territory Baker is trying to cover here: cultivating an inner life, forming alliances, effectively relating to emotions, and "elderhood" at any age (that last one still has me scratching my head in confusion). In brief, Baker believes (rightly in my opinion) that, in addition to the "outer" responses to what James Howard Kunstler calls the long emergency and what John Michael Greer refers to as the long descent, our cultivation of inne The four sections of the book give the reader a feel for the territory Baker is trying to cover here: cultivating an inner life, forming alliances, effectively relating to emotions, and "elderhood" at any age (that last one still has me scratching my head in confusion). In brief, Baker believes (rightly in my opinion) that, in addition to the "outer" responses to what James Howard Kunstler calls the long emergency and what John Michael Greer refers to as the long descent, our cultivation of inner resources, of creativity, of beauty, and especially of meaning, are essential to our individual and collective survival. She points the reader toward many of her own favorite resources for this cultivation, including meditation, journaling, and reading/writing poetry, and also discusses becoming a "warrior of vulnerability" in regard to emotions, but alas offers little concrete information on how to start engaging with these needful practices. The "Confronting and Contemplating" exercises she places at the end of each chapter, come the closest to providing this concrete introduction, and perhaps my opinion of the book will increase as my post-reading engagement with these exercises deepens. It was also a definite shot in the arm to be reminded that my education, focusing as it did on questions of meaning and meditation, rather than on money and corporate ladder-climbing, may be of great benefit in the interesting times to come. Time will tell.

    Boring and abrasive. Brief synopsis: We are all doomed but you can take some small solace in grounding yourself. I will make vague allusions to how you can do this without actually providing you with any means to develop these skills. I will also cut and paste liberally from what other folks have written since I have nothing significant to say myself.

    I read 37%. I may pick it up where I left off later. It seems to me that the way of life suggested is good and would help keep chaos to a minimum. Making good community relations and getting to know oneself is what stood out to me in this first part of the book. There is a big emphasis on how life is changing in a big way for this world. We are in need of cooperation and caring for each other.

    There really isn't a better time to read this- Sacred Demise was an amazing eye-opening book... I look forward to continuing with this one. There really isn't a better time to read this- Sacred Demise was an amazing eye-opening book... I look forward to continuing with this one.
