Foreword by Futurist Steve McDonald
Preface by Dr. Don Beck
Do you dream of a life full of soul and purpose? Do you wish you could achieve extraordinary things, while also making the world a better place? You can, and The Change Code provides the roadmap to get there.
You have big dreams, but it can be hard to stay inspired in today’s world. The news headlines make you want to bury your head under the covers. You feel angry and disgusted and question your very faith in humanity. Climate change, immigration, healthcare – how are we supposed to address the world’s biggest problems when we can’t even talk to each other?
Everything has become so polarized that it’s difficult to find common ground, even at the family dinner table. Our world has reached a tipping point.
But there is hope. You and I can be part of the solution.
Humanity seems to be undergoing a major shift in consciousness. This isn’t just a myth or some woo-woo idea. It’s actually happening, and it’s happening very quickly.
You may have sensed this change. You may have a strong feeling that you’re called to do something more, to live a higher purpose. But you’re not exactly sure what to do.
As you will learn in this book, you are capable of far more than you realize.
Author Monica Bourgeau helps us understand this shift through a groundbreaking model for human change and evolution that was discovered by scientist Clare W. Graves in the 1970s. Known as Spiral Dynamics, the model is used around the world in some of humanity’s most difficult conflicts. Spiral Dynamics helped Nelson Mandela end apartheid in South Africa. It reveals and explains the underlying pattern for human and societal change.
Once you understand this model – this code – you can better predict what changes will happen next, create appropriate messaging depending on your audience’s stage, and find solutions that work. Bourgeau gives us practical ways to apply these transformational concepts in our own lives, to find and live a life with deeper purpose.
When you read The Change Code, you’ll:
• use the Change Code to improve your own life and the lives of others,
• discover your own evolutionary path and what’s next,
• create a clear, focused vision for your future and the world,
• find inspiring ways to serve that actually make a difference,
• better understand others, and integrate the best parts of their ideas with your own
• develop new solutions and communicate them effectively.
