GLOBAL SENSE: Awakening Your Power to Change Our World
Global Sense by Judah Freed is an award-winning book that reveals how our global connectivity empowers us to change the world by changing ourselves. A central theme in the book is the need for us men to liberate ourselves from the cultural legacy of "alpha male rule." Instead of suffering early deaths from a compulsive need to wage wars, perform risky jobs and repress our feelings -- all to vainly prove our manhood -- we men are evolving a new form of self worth. We can connect from our hearts more than our heads. We can let go of needing to control others to feel powerful. We can model strength through compassion, because a peaceful man is a powerful man. Whether you are a son, a daughter, a wife, or a girlfriend, if you want the man in your life to be more emotionally present and more true to himself, then you owe it to him and yourself to give him a copy of Global Sense .
