In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? This inspirational and thought-provoking book serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelmed feeling so many of us have, replacing it with a grounding reminder of what’s true: we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. By fully embracing and practicing this principle of interconnectedness—called interbeing—we become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world.

Throughout the audiobook, Eisenstein relates real-life stories showing how small, individual acts of courage, kindness, and self-trust can change our culture’s guiding narrative of separation, which, he shows, has generated the present planetary crisis. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get our selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted. Above all, Eisenstein invites us to embrace a radically different understanding of cause and effect, sounding a clarion call to surrender our old worldview of separation, so that we can finally create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

With chapters covering separation, interbeing, despair, hope, pain, pleasure, consciousness, and many more, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible invites us to let the old story of separation fall away so that we can stand firmly in a story of interbeing.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a revolutionary and interactive book—in the sense that it inspires the reader to think out of the ordinary. Eisenstein will be noted in antiquity as one of the seminal and pioneering storytellers of this new world.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Charles Eisenstein is a cultural investigative journalist, questioning the perpetually unexamined assumptions of both conventional and countercultural thinking. He is a cultural storyteller, a visionary who gives us a glimpse of what the new story of the people may look like, how we might get there, and how close we are to it.”

    Mark Boyle, author of The Moneyless Manifesto

  • “It is rare to find, in such digestible portions, so rich a feast for mind and heart.”

    Joanna Macy, author of Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy

  • “When I read Charles Eisenstein I felt as if I had just put on an extraordinarily clear, lucid, morally honest set of glasses. I see my outer and inner worlds in penetrating detail. He isn’t just describing a possible world. He is helping us find our way to it.”

    Vicki Robin, author of Your Money or Your Life

  • “This book will change your world. It is beautiful because Charles Eisenstein has the courage to be vulnerable, and it is in acknowledging our vulnerability that we will realize our greater humanity.”

    Peter Owen-Jones, presenter of Around the World in 80 Faiths, author, and priest
