I’m excited to be joined in dialog by Michael Murphy this coming Sunday,
June 10th. In 2010, I had a stirring conversation with him entitled, “The Embodiment of the Divine In Everyday Life”. He and I feel the time is right to more fully explore the what surfaced then, and on that basis, to look ahead into The Future of Human Evolution.
Through his innovative early work at Esalen, his influential books, his special interest in high-performance athletes, and his work in founding Integral Transformative Practice, Michael Murphy has for decades been a groundbreaking observer, scholar and prophet about the future of human evolution and supernormal human functioning.
Recently, he has been looking at how all his work fits in to the larger evolution of human consciousness, something he’s been documenting in a major essay called “The Emergence of Evolutionary Panentheism.” In this essay, Murphy takes a look at the roots of 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 focused 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!
About Michael Murphy:
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.
