Evolutionize Your Life   

Michael Dowd and Connie Barlow explore how an understanding of our brain's evolutionary heritage can help us thrive despite "mismatched instincts" tempted by "supernormal stimuli". (publ. 2012)

    Published in 2008, this is the companion DVD to Michael Dowd's book, Thank God for Evolution. Disk 1 covers the core concepts of the book, including public v. private revelation, day v. night language, nested emergence, the sacred direction of evolution, awakening to our role in the cosmos, God and reality, evolutionary integrity, and more. Disk 2 is geared for religiously moderate and conservative audiences; here Dowd bridges scientific concepts to core Christian doctrines. Both programs were filmed in audience settings and are richly supplemented with illustrations.

          Celebrating Evolution

    In this lively, richly illustrated, and science-grounded DVD you will find this husband-and-wife team of evolutionary evangelists celebrating 14 billion years of cosmic, earth, life, and cultural evolution. Learn from Connie Barlow, a popular science writer and educator, how the chemical elements within us are the gifts of stars that lived and died before our sun was born. Marvel in the comings and goings in North America of familiar and extraordinary mammals for the 65 million years since the dinosaurs vanished from the landscape. Take in Connie's poignant message of how death is natural and generative at all scales of reality and how and when the breakthrough understandings came about. Explore playful evolutionary parables and be moved by two of Rev. Michael Dowd's most popular sermons for liberal religious audiences. Filmed at various venues including: Meadville-Lombard Winter Institute, EarthSpirit Rising Conference, Montessori Teachers, EnlightenNext, and several Unitarian Universalist churches.

          The Great Story

    In this engaging 4-hour DVD set, Rev. Michael Dowd presents the 14-billion-year epic of evolution. In sharp contrast with a chance, mechanistic, meaningless picture of the Universe, Michael uses the same mainstream discoveries of science to construct an inspiring deep-time perspective that is vital for today's challenges. Along the way, Dowd constructs a pictorial "Cosmic Century Timeline," applies Spiral Dynamics to the history of cultural evolution, and explores four gifts of an evolutionary worldview, which (1) reconciles science and religion, (2) transforms our view of chaos, (3) broadens our circles of care, and (4) evokes empowering visions of the future.
