Duane Elgin is one of the pioneers of evolutionary consciousness and integral philosophy. He has brought many crucial ideas into our collective conversation. Terry and Duane will explore freely, beginning with some of the key themes that Duane has so brilliantly clarified. For example:
1. A LIVING, NOT DEAD UNIVERSE: We live in a living, regenerative universe. This insight transforms our understanding of where we are, who we are, and where we are going.
2. SUSTAINABLE WAYS OF LIVING: Consumerism makes sense in a dead universe. But voluntary, happy, simplicity makes more sense in a living universe–and that is the view of reality emerging now.
3. MASS MEDIA AND MASS MIND: At this pivotal time in human evolution, it is vitally important that messages in the mass media serve our psychological and spiritual health and not distort our collective intelligence, imagination and evolution.
4. GREAT TRANSITION STORIES: We are in the early stages of a ‘great transition.’ There are a number of stories that offer insight into this process.
* HUMANITY IS GROWING UP
* HUMANITY IS ON A HEROIC JOURNEY
* HUMANITY IS EVOLVING INTO A NEW STAGE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
* WE ARE SHIFTING FROM A BIOLOGICAL TO A BIO-COSMIC IDENTITY
5. TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION: We require processes that will acknowledge and work to overcome the thousands of years of separation that has been experienced by different people at different times, including: women/men, poor/rich, black/white, old/young, Muslim/Christian, humans/other life-forms, etc. We would benefit enormously from a global, truth and reconciliation process at every scale.
