9 = the number beloved by mathematicians and mystics alike as a symbol of completeness, the maximum expression of possibility – seen by some as a key to the universe.

This concise exploration of the meaning of life, and wiser ways of being human, offers nine lessons drawn from the predominant scientific worldview of today. Newer scientific perspectives and insights into our infinitely magical and mysterious cosmos provide a rich context for pondering some of the perennial deeper questions. In all previous ages, such speculations served to give humanity a sense of the meaning and purpose of life, as well as a moral compass – something much needed for our collective evolution today

Isn’t it time to remember the miracle of who we are?

These core lessons, and the reflections contained within them, serve as a prequel to #Time4Humanity, the guide to conscious leadership which provides the inspiration and framework for would-be world-changers to bring their visions to life.


Calling those with the curiosity, compassion, and courage to lead us into a new way of being human. This is your handbook, your guide for the adventure ahead.

In this book, Samie Al-Achrafi offers a clarion call to people who want something else, something different and greater for and from their time on this planet. He blends the story of his own awakening with practical insights, spiritual wisdom, and high intentions for humanity, asking the big and important questions, while inviting us to share our deeper truths about the answers.

Samie reminds us that, like a ripple expanding outwards from the center of the pond, our work, our words, vibration, and our example reverberate out from where we stand, subtly changing the world. It is time for change. It is time for humanity.

The beauty of it, the power of it, the urgent message in it, the sheer healing force within it flows through me like a huge wave. This book will be a world gamechanger in leadership. It reminds us that humanity and humaneness are intricately linked, but this requires our conscious action and intelligence.

Through #Time4Humanity we are called to paint the most beautiful painting: our life.

The moment I started reading I felt a connection of someone telling the meaning of life with his own life experiences. Part three – The Awakened Future – mirrored the current state of my life and gave me guidance on the possibilities of how to respond.

Reading #Time4Humanity is like peeling back layers one after the other, starting from looking at how organisations can work differently, shaping conscious leadership and culture-based approaches to management. The journey continues through topics such as ethical consumerism, finding a balance with the planet, and questioning our relationship with technology and data. At the end, you arrive at looking at yourself in the mirror, asking how you can live true to your purpose, let go of what no longer serves you and become a part of transforming humanity.

This book is essential reading for this next phase of humankind’s development, as it addresses the fundamental challenges within the business world in terms of the human narrative. At once personal, persuasive, compelling and authoritative, #Time4Humanity reveals the gaps that all too often appear in people’s lives and relationships with compassion and solutions.

Change and transformation are here; navigating to create with it is in our hands. Riding the winds of change is an art and we all can accentuate that part. Humanity as a whole is connected – thus using that connection is the way forward to catapult into the change we can choose to be a part of. #Time4Humanity encapsulates that frequency.

Absolutely brilliant! Reduced me to tears! A must-read for anyone seeking the essence to bring back our true humanity through conscious leadership.
