Our Publications & Partnerships
Future Humans Trilogy
Written as an allegory, the Future Humans Trilogy guides you through an experiential transformation journey that weaves together real-life events that are at the forefront of what's happening in our world right now, with cutting-edge insights from the new sciences, indigenous wisdom, and consciousness teachings for discovering the greater possibilities of our future becoming.
The Quest of Rose: The Cosmic Keys of Our Future Becoming is book 1 of the Future Humans Trilogy, and a Winner of the 2022 Silver Nautilus Book Award in the category of Personal Growth, and a #1 Amazon Bestseller. Join the future humans in this life-changing journey through Rose’s quest. Hospitalized with COVID-19, Rose a young woman in her mid-twenties, slips beyond the veils of death and discovers the hidden Cosmic architecture of the Universe and how this connects to the primacy of Consciousness. She is returned to the Cosmic Tree of Life where she is given the possibility of a new and conscious choice. As she makes the higher-order choice, she is guided to the future potentials of a new era and the Cosmic keys for the rebirth and renewal of herself and our world. With the help of her Icelandic grandmother, the magus Verdandi, she learns the names and powers of these nine Cosmic Keys and how to apply these for her life and our world through twelve transformation practices for developing your future human potential of a new era. Praised by many luminaries as: "a masterpiece", "epic and unlike any other", "one of the most important books of our catalytic time", and "a true gift to humanity."
Return of the Avatars: The Cosmic Architect Tools of Our Future Becoming is book 2 of the Future Humans Trilogy, which also became a #1 Amazon Bestseller within days of its release. The journey continues and deepens as whole new dangers lurk around the corner, attracted to Rose's growing powers. Join the future humans in this spell-breaking, soul-stirring adventure as they explore essential lessons about power, unity, ego, shadow, hope, courage, and love. Empowered with the discoveries of the Cosmic architecture of life, you’ll now discover together with Rose and her friends how to decode the systems and agendas of the economics of domination and the governance of disunity. Explore the new choices and possibilities by developing your future human powers through the wisdom of the higher heart, with the help of the 7 Cosmic Architect Toos, the Avatar interface, and the 10 transformation practices. Praised by Deepak Chopra, M.D. as a "prophetic book", Return of the Avatars addresses the key issues of our time in ways that empower our future human potential of the emerging new era. Although recommended, it's not necessary to have read the first book.
The New Paradigm in Politics by co-editors and co-authors Anneloes Smitsman and Alexander Laszlo and the book's series editor, Ervin Laszlo, provide an exploration of the necessary transformation of our contemporary political systems and practices. In August 2021 The Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research hosted an online Global Symposium titled “The New Paradigm in Politics.” This book summarizes the presentations of the symposium's participants and brings together the key ideas and practices of 35 world-renowned thought leaders in the fields of systems science, futurism, consciousness research, public policy, law, social science, and philosophy who advocate the role of politics to create a new paradigm in human civilizational development. Contributors include Nafeez Ahmed, Frederick Tsao, Garry Jacobs, Jean Houston, Rama Mani, Violeta Bulc, Youssef Mahmoud, Charles Eisenstein, Flavia Valgiusti, Naresh Singh, and others.
The New Paradigm in Politics provides the grounds for the design of systems of governance that are based on holism and interdependence—rather than the old mechanistic paradigm of dualism and separation.The symposium participants explored in their dialogues and essays the ways we can change from human unsustainability and collapse to a planetary regeneration and thrivability. The book includes compelling case-studies and examples of new constitutions from grassroots initiatives that demonstrate a new paradigm in politics is already emerging. The way forward into the new paradigm will depend on embracing our opportunities to engage in participatory decision-making with all levels of society and following this with actions based on our shared visions and common responsibilities.
The r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint
Anneloes Smitsman is the lead author of the r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint with 7 Transformative Learning Perspectives for Regeneration and Thrivbability, published by r3.0. This Blueprint features the EARTHwise Education for Sustainability program as case-study, as well as the transformation strategies that have evolved from the EARTHwise research over many years.
The purpose for this Blueprint is to inspire, catalyze, and support a much needed shift in the role and focus of education towards developing our transformative capacities for regeneration and thrivability. Major inner and outer shifts are required in our perspectives, understanding, attitudes, expectations, behaviours, and actions for safeguarding the present and future wellbeing of life on earth. Without this, the survival of our own and many other species is not guaranteed. Never before has learning and education become this important for developing our navigational capacities during this catalytic time of compounding tipping points. This includes preparing humanity for what we have set in motion by destabilizing our climate systems and damaging our biodiversity, and to catalyze the required actions for preventing the worst case scenarios from happening by shifting gears and trajectories now towards regeneration and thrivability.
Into the Heart of Systems Change
Learn about the foundations of thrivability (and why this is about more than mere sustainability), the importance of evolutionary coherence and the architecture of living systems, the informational dynamics of the evolutionary process, emerging future archetypes, the thrivability pattern, the difference between systemic thrivability barriers and boundaries, and how to transform our societies by applying living system principles for our societal development.
This groundbreaking PhD dissertation, "Into the Heart of Systems Change" by EARTHwise Founder Dr Anneloes Smitsman, provides the scientific foundations for our EARTHwise projects, strategies, system designs, and transformation programs. Anneloes received her degree of Doctor from the School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University, the Netherlands, where she conducted her Ph.D. as external researcher at the Maastricht Sustainability Institute (formerly ICIS). Her dissertation is gaining international traction for the innovative guidance it provides through its Transition Plan for a Thrivability Civilisation and for addressing the systemic thrivability barriers in resolving our greatest societal challenges.
Love Letters & Messages from Mother Earth
The Amazon Bestseller Love Letters from Mother Earth – The Promise of a New Beginning by Dr Anneloes Smitsman is based on her conversations with our Earth as a Mother. Through these 13 Letters we discover who we are from a planetary perspective and receive the wisdom from Mother Earth for this challenging time.
Through these thirteen Letters we discover three essential keys for the actualization of our unity with life, so we may understand the root causes of the thousands of years of division that have caused so much suffering. Mother Earth promises and shows us how a new cycle of time, a new beginning, is possible by remembering the sacred principle for creating with the power of love. Highly acclaimed with a foreword by Prof dr. Alexander Laszlo.
Becoming a Tipping Point for Systems Change
We've entered the tipping point time of accelerated changes and major planetary challenges. This requires a whole new understanding of our evolutionary development and how to radically shift the current trajectories that lead to widescale collapse. Through the Tipping Point System we explore how our harmonically aligned efforts, talents, and creatvity can become regenerative social tipping points for the required societal transformations.
OUR TPS IS OUR GPS FOR WHOLE SYSTEMS CHANGE
Here we bring the best of our scientific knowledge, digital technologies, indigenous wisdom, entrepreneurial practice and collective leadership together to become the future humans of new civilizations, designed to thrive.
We are currently working on the co-creation of The Earth Song under the leadership of EARTHwise founder Anneloes Smitsman and the award-winning composer and singer Sasha Siem, in partnership with the EARTHwise Collaboratory.
Tipping Point Conversations for a World that Works
The Future Normals Webinar Series
Envisioning a post-coronavirus world
This transformational on-demand webinar series results from a unique collaboration between EARTHwise Centre and r3.0. The recent COVID crisis has revealed even more strongly that dualistically polarized systems are incapable of guiding us through periods of crisis. In fact they are the very reason that we sink so deep into crisis. With dualistically polarized systems we mean the kind of dynamics that create divisions such as “economic gain versus health priorities”, “climate priorities versus business interests”, “state safety versus individual freedom”, and so forth.
The “Future Normals” webinars explore the necessary ’transition pathways’ (r3.0’s language of multi-level transformation), to get us out of dualistic argumentation and old unsustainable normals, by offering a Third Way approach for moving out of the crisis. The Third Way is a unique approach developed by Dr Anneloes Smitsman based on her Ph.D. research at Maastricht University, the Netherlands.
