The New Enlightenment: Awaken to Your Unique Self
The future of our world depends on the great realization of love: that which unites us is infinitely greater than that which divides us. For the first time in the history of the human race, we are able to rise beyond the place of our birth, our religion of origin, our family circle and choose to live our highest truth. This truth transcends and includes all of our personal history even as it invites us to our singular and unique evolutionary destiny – Unique Self.
The Spiritual teaching for this age must be drawn from all of the great traditions of Spirit, pre-modern, modern, and post-modern. These great understandings must be lovingly integrated into a space of open heart, community and insight that has the power and the compassion to guide us on the next stage of our personal and global journey.This next step is The New Enlightenment and the path is to Awaken to Your Unique Self.
Sexuality, Spirituality, and Shadow: The 3 S’s of Personal and Dynamic Evolution
The domains of Sexuality, Spirituality and Shadow, when consciously engaged, propel us into greater love, clarity, spontaneous compassion, and freedom. This series will examine Spirit and Shadow through the lens of the most energetically potent facet of our embodiment: Sexuality. Through yogic practice, meditative inquiry, interpersonal intimacy, and dynamic group consideration, we will deeply discover and refine how we deploy this most potent force of our embodiment in our personal and professional lives.
It is the adventure not to miss if you crave great company, the profound pleasure of growth and laughter, and want to be challenged to the greatest depth of your gorgeous and evolving being.
Awakening to the Enlightenment Practices of Evolutionary Love, Intimacy, and Activism
What does it mean to create an Evolutionary Relationship? What are the five areas of practice that you must live in your life in order to realize yourself as a good, whole, and happy being? What is a realization of Evolutionary Love and and why does it literally have the power to change everything in your life? What are the three core skills of Evolutionary Intimacy? How do you personally and directly participate in the catalytic force of World Spirituality whose essential evolutionary impulse is the healing and transformation of both self, other, and the world?
This is the container in which you will meet some of the people who will walk with you through your life. This is a place to meet people who share your values, your vision, and your evolutionary vitality. This is the container in which your core mode of engagement in the world may undergo a significant upgrade.
Living a World Spirituality: Spirit’s Next Move
Millions of spiritual seekers today are confused. Some grew up in religions that they left and charted their own spiritual path. Others were raised without religion and found their way to spiritual practice. Still others practice in a particular religion yet do not feel that it holds the exclusive truth, and feel powerfully attracted to other systems of spirit that might deepen or compliment their native tradition. It is clear that the time for the emergence of Spirit’s next step is now, and that the emergence of a World Spirituality is an evolutionary step in human history.
The yearning to articulate a World Spirituality is rippling across the globe in the hearts and minds of tens of millions of people. For some people, the classical religions have lost their power. They seek a path of practice and commitment that transcends the traditions. For others, their intuitive desire is to transcend and include the traditions. They seek to live as dual citizens, rooted in their tradition, even as they locate themselves as citizens in the broader community of World Spirituality.
The Future of Love: The Three Keys to Love
Love is more than just a feeling. Enlightened teachers through the ages have told us that love is the dynamic ground of all reality. If that’s true, then love can be seen as the actual force that drives evolution—the force the Greeks called Eros—as well as the enlivening joy that opens the heart.
So what is love, when we see it from both a personal and an evolutionary perspective? How do we find it, nurture it, and sustain it?
Modern science and philosophy point out that all levels of reality are evolving. The world of today is wildly different then the world of yesterday. Matter, body, mind and even spirit are in flux. When we understand the profound evolutionary context of life, we realize that love must be evolving as well.
Wow: The Evolution of Love—What a wild, important and profound idea!
