Members of Homo sapiens are developing into a new creative species called Homo deva. The era of Homo deva will take us across a major evolutionary threshold, as people learn to express a full integration of intellect and higher intuition. Homo deva describes three phases through which we will journey during our species transition, a biopsychospiritual shift upward in identity.

About the Author:

Mary Belknap trained as an educational psychologist and attorney. Over the past four decades, she has worked as a teacher, researcher, and administrator in juvenile justice and in social service agencies including homeless shelters, healthcare facilities, and private foundations.

After undergraduate studies at Stanford, Mary completed graduate programs at U.C. Berkeley (MPH, health education; Ph.D. with honors in educational psychology), and later received a J.D. from Georgia State University. She is a member of the California Bar (inactive), and is a longtime member of Mensa. In 1999-2000, Mary served as operations director for Family and Children s Services of Catholic Charities for San Francisco, Marin, and San Mateo Counties. During the eight years leading up to Autumn 2008, she worked as a catalyst in the financial services industry. In the past five years, 2010-2014, Mary focused on projects in her local community in areas of sustainability, healthcare for elders, and nurturing a better relationship of religion and spirituality.

Mary began studying human potential in 1973 as a member of a project on alternative approaches to medical education. For over 11 years, she published the H. D. Newsletter, which explored the emergence of a new humanity. Her writings and observation are based on 40 years of exploration at the frontiers of human development and cultural climax. She is founder and director of Lifethread Institute. Mary has five special links to the future of humanity—her daughter, granddaughter, and three nephews—plus many wonderful friends who all make this lifetime a journey of joy. Homo deva is her first book.

Review:

Homo deva is more than another excellent book on human development and evolution. Mary has put her attention to the precise breakthrough that most of us do not yet notice. That is: We are becoming a new species!! This has been my understanding but never before have I read a book outline the stages of our new species-hood that is arising everywhere, but is very rarely realized. I believe it will be seen in retrospect as a step as great as from Homo Neanderthal to Homo sapiens sapiens 50,000 years ago. Bravo, Mary! Essential reading for all evolutionaries and everyone interested in the future of humanity. --Barbara Marx Hubbard, President, Foundation for Conscious Evolution

Homo deva is at once rich and profound in its exploration of new ways of being. In a time that suggests that we have no alternative but to grow or die, Mary Belknap offers a pathway into our future selves that is both practical and achievable. To dialogue with the ideas in this book is to discover the evolving self that is latent in every one of us. --Jean Houston, Ph.D., author, Jump Time and The Possible Human

This breathtaking vision of the evolutionary step now facing humanity provides hope and courage as we meet our current struggles. Dr. Belknap also gives practical guidance: From her personal sharing, to experiential exercises, action-oriented suggestions, and a comprehensive resource list, she invites us not only to understand the challenges in this evolutionary shift, but offers us ways to engage it. I read Homo deva as a hopeful song from our collective future. --John Firman, psychotherapist and co-author, The Primal Wound and Psychosynthesis: A Psychology of the Spirit
