Join us this Sunday, July 1st at 10am PST for what is sure to be an inspiring dialog with award-winning journalist Carter Phipps. We’ve all heard about fossils and fruit-flies, Darwin and Dawkins. But as Carter eloquently argues in his new book, “EVOLUTIONARIES: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science’s Greatest Idea”, the idea of evolution is much more profound and far-reaching.
Today, evolution embraces everything—from economics to psychology, from politics to religion, from ecology to technology. So is evolution just the latest buzz-word, or does all this point to a deeper, more complex truth? Carter suggests that evolution signifies the emergence of nothing less than a new worldview—one that honors science, reframes culture, and radically updates spirituality.
Carter’s new book was described as a “masterful survey of the diverse ideas that make up the emerging field of integral thought,” by Publisher’s Weekly and a “profoundly important new work” by philosopher Ken Wilber. “Evolutionaries” introduces a movement of visionary scientists, philosophers, and spiritual thinkers who are quietly forging this new understanding of evolution. Their contribution, Carter suggests, may one day be seen as equaling the Western Enlightenment in its dramatic, culture-changing power.
With the publication of “Evolutionaries”, Phipps may be poised to become the go-to expert on evolutionary spirituality and the broader evolutionary worldview out of which this potent and relevant new vision is emerging. Join us as we uncover what it means to be an “Evolutionary,” and explore these transformative ideas that are illuminating the secrets of our past and expanding the vistas of our future.
