With the interest in THE COMING INTERSPIRITUAL AGE— widely reviewed and getting a lot of buzz, we hear talk now about how this paradigm might move toward making its way toward “movement” status. Of course much of this is enigmatic but, bottom line, the message does continue to grow! Jan. 8 will see Amazon releasing the book AND the book coming out in Kindle, and other e-version, formats. Prices will fluctuate dramatically as competition comes into the matter, commercially.
The website www.thecominginterspiritualage.com should be up sometime soon and will also be quite a complete presentation of the emerging paradigm.
Similarly, Namaste will build a “one time only” EZINE around the book and the people and groups stepping up to participate are great. Here is what that looks like as of now:
The line up right now for the EZINE looks something like this— these people are confirmed etc. Sorry for the spacing probems!
