We’ve had some great responses to that dialogue, and we’re now preparing ourselves for our next one with Michael Murphy.
Michael Murphy will be talking with Terry Patten about The Embodiment of the Divine In Everyday Life on Sunday, September 19 at 5 PM Pacific Time. Through his special interest in high-performance athletes, Michael Murphy has been a groundbreaking observer and scholar of supernormal human functioning for decades.
Recently, he has been looking at how all his groundbreaking work fits in to the larger evolution of human consciousness, something he’s in the process of documenting in a major new essay, a work-in-progress called The Emergence of Evolutionary Panentheism. In this essay, Murphy takes a look at the big picture of the new world view that is arising, and how our lives can change by living consciously in relation to that big picture—and how to make that an Integral practice.
Something else that will make it worthwhile to tune in to this conversation is that Michael Murphy, with George Leonard pioneered the first book on Integral Practice, which they called “Integral Transformative Practice.” Terry is the co-author, with Ken Wilber, of the book Integral Life Practice, and was a student of Murphy and George Leonard years ago. So in this conversation these two important streams of Integral Practice — Integral Transformative Practice and Integral Life Practice — will be engaging in a living conversation!
For those of you who don’t know Michael Murphy, here is his bio:
Michael Murphy founded Esalen Institute in 1962. He is known for helping to spark, along with George Leonard and many others, what has come to be known as “the human potential movement.” In addition, his pioneering work on peak performance in sports, helped popularize the idea of “the zone.” And he helped to create the Integral Transformative Practice in the mid 1990s. After graduating from Stanford University in the mid-1950’s, he studied at Sri Aurobindo Ashram in South India, where he developed the spiritual and philosophical foundations that led to the founding of Esalen. Murphy is author of many nonfiction books that explore evidence for extraordinary human capacities, including The Future of the Body, The Life We Are Given (with George Leonard) and The Physical and Psychological Effects of Meditation (with Steven Donovan). He has also written four novels: Golf in the Kingdom,The Kingdom of Shivas Irons, Jacob Atabet, and An End to Ordinary History.
