Consciousness-V-Catastrophe-Dr-Gillian-Ross_book-674x1024Local author Gillian Ross will launch her new book Consciousness v Catastrophe at the Byron Bay Library on Friday March 24 from 10.30am.

She says, ‘The current crises besetting humanity call for a revolution in consciousness and a mystical renaissance that will bring about a whole new story of what it means to be human.’
