2026. The earth's ecosystem has broken down under human abuse. Water supplies are shrinking. Rain is rare, and North America is gripped in the Great Drought with crops withering and forests dying. In the midst of ecological and social collapse, an old woman and a young man set out to heal nature and reactivate the cycle of flow by using techniques of higher consciousness. But the corporations that control the remaining water lash out to stop them. A blend of adventure and mystic wisdom, Wellsprings: A Fable of Consciousness is a frightening but hopeful look into a future that is looming closer every day.
Author William T. Hathaway began his writing career as a newspaper reporter in San Francisco, then joined the Special Forces to write a book about war. A World of Hurt won a Rinehart Foundation Award for its portrayal of the psychological roots of war: the emotional blockage and need for patriarchal approval that draw men to the military. Summer Snow tells of an American warrior in Central Asia who falls in love with a Sufi Muslim and learns from her that higher consciousness is more effective than violence. Radical Peace: People Refusing War presents the experiences of peace activists who have moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, defying the government's laws and impeding its capacity to kill. Chapters are posted on a page of the publisher's website at http://media.trineday.com/radicalpeace. A selection of his writing is available at www.peacewriter.org. He was made a teacher of Transcendental Meditation by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and is currently an adjunct professor of American studies at the University of Oldenburg in Germany.
