Table of contents

This site is dedicated to the manifestation of a book called Collective Presencing, our New Human Capacity. Manifesting Potential at the Collective Level (current title). Now and then (I had hoped like every week, but that is not how life makes it happen) new and next parts of the book will be posted for you to read and comment on. Here you find the table of contents, so that you can situate the parts that you are reading.

If you can’t wait to have a full picture of what the book is about, then read the 4 Kosmos Journal articles published from Spring/Summer 2012 on – although some of the ideas have changed since then.
