As an age draws to a close, people worldwide face economic collapse, ecological devastation, political madness and personal feelings of hopelessness, overwhelm and despair. It's no wonder that many believe we live in the end of times. But what if instead what we are experiencing is the birth pangs of a new world?
We live in a period of profound transformation, celebrating the beginning of a great new cycle. Drawing on meticulous research as well as personal shamanic experience, Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift clarifies the ‘big picture’ of planetary evolution from the perspectives of ancient wisdom and modern science. It reveals an intricate interplay between phenomena such as galactic superwaves, magnetic pole reversals, evolutionary impulses within matter, and the descent of supramental light in order to shape a new species of humanity on a rapidly evolving earth. Rather than waiting passively for something to happen to us, this is the time to actively dream a new world awake!

Kiara Windrider, MA, MFT, spent much of his early life travelling and practicing various spiritual traditions in India. A lifelong interest in environmental healing, peacemaking, and social justice led to degree in Peace Studies through Bethel college in Kansas, followed by a Masters in Transpersonal Psychology through JFK University in Orinda, California.
He worked for many years as an alternative psychiatric centre called Pocket Ranch Institute, which specialised in healing emotional trauma and facilitating spiritual emergence. He received a psychotherapy license (MFT) from the State of California in 1998. He has also trained in various forms of bodywork, breath work, hypnotherapy and shamanic healing.
A major interest has been in understanding planetary and cosmic cycles and their relevance to humanity's journey of awakening. He has approached this study through the eyes of shamans, geologists, historians, physicists, prophets and mystics. From this research, he has come to the firm conviction that we stand collectively at the brink of a quantum evolutionary leap beyond our wildest dreams.
His current interest is in discovering the essence of truth linking the spiritual, scientific and psychological traditions that have shaped our lives and history during these long ages, so we can move towards shaping and co-creating a new world of beauty, harmony and truth.

“I read this book twice because it was so provocative and compelling. Kiara Windrider has done something almost no other author has before. He has built an architecture – at the same time both scientific and spiritual – that, better than almost any other book I have read, explains what is going on in our world, solar system, and galaxy today . . . and where this all is going and what its implications for humanity are likely to be. Year Zero is an unusually authoritative, integrated picture of the future!”
— John L. Petersen, Editor of FUTUREdition and author of A Vision for 2012: Planning for Extraordinary Change
“As I write, I am days, possibly hours from experiencing the birth of my first child. I can barely contain myself as I implode with gratitude for the gift of Year Zero! Every word resonates on a cellular level, awakening ancient memories and realigning my consciousness with an unshakable knowing that the best has yet to come. This is more than a book; it is a manual for building the new world! A world I am honored to leave to my child.”
— Mikki Willis – new father/founder, ELEVATE

At the same time, he is both very intuitive and mystical, and has used these gifts to explore, understand, and clearly explain to his readers the exceptional opportunities and possibilities that we as individuals and as a world have in front of us. It is said that, ‘Knowledge is power’ and Year Zero is powerful!”
— George Humphrey, Author and Radio/TV Host

“Amid the noise and tumult, the books and blogs, the assertions and opinions about 2012 and the time of shift, it is a blessing to receive Kiara Windrider’s stimulating Year Zero. He claims no certainties but lays out an illuminating series of perspectives which can only help us navigate the volatile years before us.”
