I’ve often been asked, “After all these public conversations with all these amazing people,what have you discovered, Terry? You’ve spoken with enlightened teachers and philosophers and activists and scientists and neuropsychologists. The dialogs have been incredibly diverse. Does it all add up?
“What insights have you gained into this question you keep asking: ‘How can higher consciousness help human beings rise to meet the unprecedented challenges of our time?’ Any gems of wisdom?”
Well, this Sunday, June 3rd, I’ll have a chance to respond to those questions, and in some depth!
Integral Enlightenment founder, Craig Hamilton, will be appearing on this special Beyond Awakening as a guest. But in a twist, Craig will be the interviewer rather the interviewee (which he has been and may be again.)
I am touched and honored to be interviewed by Craig who is a skilled interviewer, as well as my dear friend and a dynamic pioneer in the emerging field of evolutionary spirituality. I trust he will brilliantly facilitate a deep exploration of my emerging insights.
Some of the themes I will explore with Craig include:
* Nondual civic responsibility
* The emergence of an integral evolutionary worldview
* Reverse engineering the human body-mind
* The emergence of a new revolutionary transpersonal synthesis
* The koans of our time, including: The practice of activism or “being the change” and “doing the change”; And keeping our hearts open when it hurts most
* The birth of the meta-sangha, a term I coined at the beginning of this series
* What does it take to practice this right now?
We are blessed and challenged to be a part of a shared cultural contemplation and deep questioning that is going on all over the world—the kind of questioning that is epitomized in the Beyond Awakening series.
I’m excited to stride a bit deeper into that fertile territory this coming Sunday. Please join us!
To our evolution,
