Integral Tranformative Practice and the Evolution of the Whole Person
Human transformation is a complex and multi-faceted endeavor. In our quest for the realization of our full human capacities, it's all too easy to become overly focused on the development of one aspect of ourselves at the expense of our higher development in another. For instance, many of us have discovered that, after years of meditation practice, we have become very good meditators, but remain dysfunctional in our relationships or challenged in our ability to accomplish our goals in the world. A burning question facing all of us today is: "How can we bring about an "integral" transformation--one that ensures that we develop all of our human capacities in a balanced and holistic way?” In this teleseminar with evolutionary pioneer Michael Murphy, we'll dive headlong into this question.
We'll look at what it means to evolve toward our full potential, and explore the power of Integral Transformative Practice, the groundbreaking approach to transformation Murphy developed along with George Leonard. We hope you'll join us for this exciting kick-off of our series.
About Michael Murphy
Michael Murphy is the chairman of Esalen Institute, which he confounded with Richard Price in 1962. He is also known for helping to spark, along with George Leonard, what has come to be known as the human potential movement. 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.
Today's leading spiritual luminaries are converging online for an unprecedented exploration.
Their question: How does the spiritual path need to evolve to serve the evolutionary needs of humanity in the 21st century?
The great wisdom traditions emerged at a time when life was radically different than it is today. The world has changed immeasurably in the past two thousand years. And human beings have changed along with it.
We are a new humanity facing a new set of challenges—and a new set of opportunities.
How can we liberate the spiritual impulse from the outmoded structures of the past, so it can guide us in creating the future?
We’d like to invite you to join us in our quest for answers.
Each event will explore this question from a unique angle. We'll look at how the discovery of evolution is giving birth to an entirely new spiritual impulse-- as well as a new framework for engaging in spiritual practice. We'll ask how the great traditions of the past can be brought up to date and kept relevant to a rapidly changing, increasingly complex world. We'll explore some of the new, more integral forms that spirituality is taking, from the emergence of new paths of self-inquiry to the birth of collective enlightenment. And we'll think together about the vital role each of us can now play in creating a more enlightened future for humanity.
