The Fall: The Insanity of the Ego in Human History and the Dawning of A New Era by Steve Taylor (Author)


It is not “natural” for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, parents to oppress children, for individuals or nations to accumulate massive wealth and power, to abuse nature, to even despise our own bodies and feel guilty for experiencing natural desires. The roots of our current malaise lie in an “ego-explosion” that happened several thousand years BC. “Primitive” pre-civilization men and women lived longer, healthier, happier and more productive and fulfilled lives than we do. We need to learn from their approach to life rather than dismiss it. This is the revolutionary thesis of this well-researched, highly praised volume, overturning the accepted wisdom of the last few centuries.

Steve Taylor is the author of The Fall, Waking From Sleep, Out of the Darkness and his latest book Back to Sanity. Eckhart Tolle has described his work as ‘an important contribution to the global shift in consciousness.’ Steve is a lecturer in transpersonal psychology at Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK. In 2012 he was included (at no.31) in Mind, Body, Spirit magazine’s list of ‘The 100 most spiritually influential living people.’ He also writes poetry – his first book of poems, The Meaning, has just been published.

Steve Taylor – Out of the Darkness and The Fall (Turmoil to Enlightenment)

http://TheSpiritGuides.co.uk/Radio
Steve’s research looks at how humanity suddenly changed from being peaceful to war like from around 6000 years ago. Humanity suddenly had an ego explosion where people became more individualistic and separate. Also in his new book “Out of the Darkness” Steve discusses a number of cases where people were going through some of kind of inner turmoil to then suddenly transform into an enlightened state of awareness. Where the ego collapses and allows a higher awareness of consciousness to shine through.

Listen to Steve’s fascinating interview and learn about his popular books on the subject.

Hello and welcome to the Spirit Guides.co.uk Network Radio Show, with your host, Mark Chatterton. Our guest tonight is well known author and lecturer, Steve Taylor. Steve currently lectures at Leeds Metropolitan University on Transpersonal Psychology and Peace Psychology. He is also carrying out research into Spiritual Transformation at Liverpool’s John Moores University. He is the author of several books, including “The Fall”, “Waking From Sleep” and the just recently published, “Out of the Darkness”. So a warm welcome to you Steve.

We give thanks to Steve for persevering with us after our first attempt to record the show failed. The new software we used to hook into Skype’s audio stream failed to record anything, thankfully we fixed the issue. We appreciate Steve’s professionalism in giving us a 2nd chance to discuss his thought provoking books.
