My friend Richard (http://thesacredpath.wordpress.com/2007/03/17/hello-world/) alerted me to the on-line magazine called “the Meta Arts,” and to the fact that Hank Wesselman is a regular columnist there. After you absorb the information about him (in the column to the right of his article) I predict that you will go looking for his first book, Spiritwalker, and that you will then continue on to his others. He is an important voice in our time.
This is the beginning of Hank’s latest column. Go to (http://www.themetaarts.com/pages/hankwesselman.html) to find the rest.
Encounters on the Shaman’s Path

The Creator Reconsidered
Our last several columns (11/06-2/07) have provided an overview of the general spiritual reawakening that is going on within an important subculture emerging in the Western world-a group that could be thought of as the Transformational Community. We have also considered the beliefs and values that the transformationals hold dear.
This broad social movement is significant for two primary reasons: 1) Demographer Paul Ray (The Cultural Creatives) has revealed it is represented by at least 60-70 million people in the United States alone, with close to another 100 million in Britain and Europe, and 2) the beliefs and values held by this steadily growing cultural group carry the potential to change the directions of world history.
Either of these points are worthy of a Time Magazine cover story yet curiously, we are still under the radar of the media at large.
