Hidden Heart of the Cosmos
By: Brian Thomas Swimme
"Brian Swimme invites us to wake up and surrender to the power of relationships that pervade our cosmos. If we understand this new universe story, we will begin to see that each of us is an originating center of the universe, arising together from the heart of the cosmos." --Ilia Delio, OSF, author, The Unbearable Wholeness of Being: God, Evolution, and the Power of Love
"Hidden Heart is a brilliant reflection on how we participate in the universe that gave birth to us. We are fortunate to have this beautiful new edition to sink into the original ideas and luminous images that Swimme provides. Hidden Heart is an unparalleled source of inspiration for the further unfolding of the universe story in our times." --Mary Evelyn Tucker, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology
"This book is a gift for us all. To glimpse into the heart of anything requires a heartful way of knowing. Hidden Heart provides a cosmological vision that speaks to the soul, and ultimately to the soul of the universe itself. Rather than anthropomorphizing the cosmos, Swimme has cosmologized the human." --Richard Tarnas, author, Cosmos and Psyche
First published in 1996, Hidden Heart of the Cosmos sought to answer the question: What does it mean to be human, to live on planet Earth, in the universe as it is now understood? In this new and updated edition, bestselling author and evolutionary cosmologist Brian Thomas Swimme takes us on a journey through the cosmos in search of the “new story” that is developing in response to this age-old question.
