About Spontaneous Evolution:

Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here

By Bruce H. Lipton, PhD

and Steve Bhaerman



We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it’s not only possible, it’s already occurring.


 In Spontaneous Evolution, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics reveals how our changing understanding of biology will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet’s history and how each of us can participate in this global shift.


 In collaboration with political philosopher Steve Bhaerman, Dr. Lipton invites readers to reconsider:


  • The “unquestionable” pillars of biology, including random evolution, survival of the fittest, and the role of DNA

  • The relationship between mind and matter

  • How our beliefs about nature and human nature shape our politics, culture, and individual lives

  • How each of us can become planetary “stem cells” supporting the health and growth of our world.


By questioning the old beliefs that got us to where we are today and keep us stuck in the status quo, we can trigger the spontaneous evolution of our species that will usher in a brighter future.

What Thought Leaders Are Saying About
Spontaneous Evolution


“Spontaneous Evolution is the life-map we’ve all been waiting for! With just the right blend of spiritual humor and rock-solid science, Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman cast a holistic new light on an emerging new civilization. They lead us beyond collapsing economies and religious extremes to show us that such chaos is a natural step in an unfolding process, rather than the tragic end to a broken planet. Once we recognize the big picture, the choices to a better life and a better world become obvious. The guiding

role of Spontaneous Evolution is where our teachings of life, history, and civilization should begin. I love this book!”

— Gregg Braden, New York Times best-selling author of The Divine Matrix and Fractal Time


“The implications of this powerful book have the potential to change the world.”

— Deepak Chopra, New York Times best-selling author of Quantum Healing.


Spontaneous Evolution offers an enlightening view of humanity’s past, and an empowering vision of our ‘mammalian’ destiny. Based on cellular biologist Bruce Lipton’s solid science, informed by Steve Bhaerman’s political insight and wit, this book is a must-read for anyone who seeks to lovingly transform the world, and fulfill her or his most creative and powerful self.”

— Marianne Williamson, author of Return to Love


Spontaneous Evolution is a world-changing book that offers a heartening view of humanity’s destiny.

— Thom Hartmann, author of The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight


This wise and thoughtful book is a powerful antidote for anyone who is pessimistic and depressed about our future and the challenges we face as humans.”

 — Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Power of Premonitions


Spontaneous Evolution is a brilliant synthesis of science, evolutionary theory, and spiritual consciousness that provides a unique explanation of our global situation and how we might move forward to repair the world. It charts a path for a global ‘up-wising’ that could save us from planetary disaster, recognizing that both we as individuals and the global economic/political systems in which we operate, must evolve quickly to survive.”

— Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun magazine, chair of the interfaith Network of Spiritual Progressives, and author of Revolutionary Love


“In Spontaneous Evolution the authors redefine our commonly accepted understanding of ‘evolutionary destiny,’ placing the responsibility right where it belongs: within the mindful awareness of every individual. Their presentation of ‘holism’ gives us all reason to be optimistic.”

— Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation


Spontaneous Evolution is an eye-opening, mind-expanding, and paradigm-shifting journey. The alchemy that happens when Bruce Lipton’s cogent articulation of cellular biology and physics joins Steve Bhaerman’s lucid explanations of social, political, and economic science produces a coherent depth of 'field’ perspective that is both illuminating and inspiring. Bruce and Steve have given us a guidebook for becoming sane in a dysfunctional world.”

— Nicki Scully, author of Alchemical Healing


Spontaneous Evolution is a great book, a vital message, and even more,
it embodies Causal Evolution. By understanding and incorporating its wise revelation of how nature works, we can cause the future we intend.

“The future you dream of is as close as your own cells!  Spontaneous Evolution is a wonderfully exciting, enlightening, and heartening ride!  Read it and know exactly where we stand and how we can thrive.”

— Elisabet Sahtouris, Ph.D., evolution biologist, futurist, professor, speaker, and consultant


“From imaginal cells to cellular transformation, Spontaneous Evolution demonstrates the power of thought and intention in manifesting systemic change in both personal and social consciousness. The mix of leading-edge science and social/political awareness renders this book a must-read for all those working to create a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.”

— Georgia Kelly, director, Praxis Peace Institute
