Facing the Apocalypse: A Call for Outrageous Courage, Love, and Compassion (Paperback)
We are facing a crisis of biblical proportions, a true apocalypse.
Jungian analyst and author of 16 books Bud Harris, PhD, believes we must consciously face the apocalypse of our time. He taps into the depths of spiritual and experiential sources to focus on the essential quote from Carl Jung, "Where love stops, power begins, and violence, and terror." Facing the Apocalypse challenges the reader to find the courage to look clearly at the world around us and dig deep within to bring all that we have to restore love in a power-driven world. And he provides many tools for this necessary journey.
Harris brings deep insights into understanding and dealing with the radical changes we face today. Practical ways are noted for work toward developing meaningful love for ourselves and casting out fear of change and others. His calls for reflection are like an open dialog with the reader, as he offers prompts for personal reflection and journaling.
This small but powerful book was borne out of Dr. Harris' personal mission: to call for love in treacherous times.

"In Facing the Apocalypse, Dr. Bud Harris performs a forensic analysis of the root causes of our current global crisis and mentors a solution for transforming it. Dr. Harris has brilliantly detailed and defined the collective foundational drift that has steered us away from the integrity of heart and spirit resulting in the predictable disintegration and disorientation of life as we knew it. He offers a psycho-spiritual map to facilitate our individual and collective transformation, necessary to restore and realign ourselves with a renewed and conscious way of living in the world. From a Jungian perspective, the precision and direction he provides to navigate this apocalyptic time, offers a psycho-spiritual map that aligns us with our Deep Self, the only place where we can recover meaning and reclaim our health and integrity."

"Can there by any doubt that we are living in apocalyptic times? We must then ask about what inner resources we can draw on to face our situation. Dr. Harris has drawn on his personal experiences as a Jungian analyst to identify and illustrate the inner resources of courage, love, and compassion to confront our apocalyptic times. Each chapter of the book ends with "Thoughts and Questions" to help us ponder the insightful material covered. This book is a helpful and practical guide to the times we are living through."
