Flux is releasing today a new book "The Living Universe" that is going green with Eco-Libris

We're happy to announce on a new book released today by our partner, the Norwegian publisher
Flux. The book is the Norwegian version of The Living Universe: Where are We? Who are we? Where are we going?, an exciting exploration of the living universe that is our home, By Duane Elgin (Deepak Chopra, Foreword).

As usual with Flux, this is a green celebration -
we're proud to announce that this book, as well as all the other books published by Flux is going green with Eco-Libris, and 1,500 trees are being planted to balance out the Norwegian edition of this title!

Here's more about 'The Living Universe: Where are We? Who are we? Where are we going?', or as it is called in Norwegian
'Det levende universet' (from Amazon's webpage):

In The Living Universe, Duane Elgin marshals evidence from cosmology, biology, physics, even his participation in NASA-sponsored psychic experiments to show that the universe is actually a living field of existence and that we are always in communion with that field of aliveness whether we are conscious of it or not.

This is a worldview that, as Elgin explains, is shared by virtually every spiritual tradition, and the implications of it are vast and deep. In a living system each part is integral to the whole, so each of us is intimately connected to the entire universe. Elgin eloquently demonstrates how that identity manifests itself on a whole series of levels, from subatomic to galactic. We are, he writes, far more than biological beings; we are beings of cosmic connection and dimension.

About the author:
Duane Elgin is an internationally recognized speaker, author, and social visionary who looks beneath the surface turbulence of our times to explore the deeper trends that are transforming our world. In 2005, Duane received the Japanese “Goi International Peace Award” in recognition of his contribution to a global “vision, consciousness, and lifestyle” that fosters a “more sustainable and spiritual culture.”
