In recent years, the term polycrisis has emerged to describe the tangled relationship between myriad crises on our planet and how they invariably intersect to create a predicament that is not solvable but can only be responded to. This book offers a treasure-trove of practical tools for grounding ourselves emotionally and spiritually amid both the long-term crises and the related challenges that confront us moment to moment as we navigate unprecedented events and their invariable consequences. Apocalypse Anytime is the culmination of fifteen years of the author’s writing and research on the demise of industrial civilization and its psychospiritual impact on Earth’s living beings. It offers a life-altering challenge for readers who are willing to accept the assignment.
“No one understands or writes about our contemporary evolutionary dark night more wisely or more groundedly than Carolyn Baker. Apocalypse Anytime is the clean and fierce distillation of decades spent in the trenches of collapse and its warrior wisdom, presented with her customary vibrant clarity, is indispensable for all those who are beginning to understand that terrible though our times are, they also offer unexpected and amazing opportunities for radical transformation. This book is a must read for all those who want to find joy in despair, courage in paralysis, calm in desperation, purpose in growing bewilderment. Indispensable reading from an indispensable elder. Andrew Harvey, co-author of Radical Regeneration: A Guide to Sacred Activism with Carolyn Baker.” —Andrew Harvey
