The Great Mind Shift project overview

The short link to this page is: http://ow.ly/kCOGH

This is it! I have made references on previous occasions to something I have called the Great Mind Shift. However this is the first time I have mentioned a project which I have been developing over the past few weeks that goes by the very same name: The Great Mind Shift. You can see an overview of the project below the book cover.

I have already formed a Meet Up group in Melbourne of the same name. Our first meeting just two days ago was very promising, with an enthusiastic fourteen members attending. This particular Meet Up group is for Melbournites only (unless you are willing to fly in to our meetings!). However, there will eventually be a Mind Shift web site all of its own, and anybody, anywhere across the globe is free to visit or become a member. Meanwhile, you can read regular updates here on this page.

I listed some initial practical possibilities for this project here.

If you are as passionate about The Great Mind Shift and related subject matters as I am, please share this information via social media or email. There is an enormous amount of time, work and money (not to mention enthusiasm) required to keep this project alive, so please help us out. Thank you! This is a big project, and I can’t do it all myself. If you’d like to help in any way, email me, Marcus, mindfutures@icloud.com. I need help with things like designing and maintaining the upcoming web site, social media promotion, helping update the database of files and links etc.

Without further ado, here are the details of the Great Mind Shift project, in its essence. Marcus

The Great Mind Shift

What it means for the future of science, life and business

Initiated by:

“Where will The Great Mind Shift take us, and how can we create opportunities from it?”

The Great Mind Shift refers to the fast-approaching era of science and culture which acknowledges the reality of the extended mind and the spiritual dimensions of human experience. The Great Mind Shift explores exciting developments & possibilities in a wide array of domains including business, spirituality, philosophy, social media, education & learning, the arts, health & healing biology, physics, consciousness studies, computing etc.

The Great Mind Shift heralds an era of tremendous opportunity for all those passionate about expanded human futures and the untapped potentials within the human mind.

  1. Well done, Marcus. People are constantly saying there needs to be a paradigm shift or a consciousness evolution. Some, including myself, recognise it is happening already and I am observing or participating in groups/projects discussing this. From what I have read of your writing and life journey I have confidence you are just the person to set up and carry through this exciting project. My commitment to a vibrant, sustainable future is on behalf of my children and grandchildren and most of my time, energy, insights, shared learning, fun activities, and excitement is in anticipation of the future I hope for them.

    • Thanks for your support, Marianne. My sense is that it is only a matter of time before things shift significantly now. It will be interesting to see what the new paradigm looks like and how far it will go.
