Evolutionary Spirituality and the Integral Worldview
In the last forty years, progressive spirituality has made a good deal of social progress. Progressive spiritual teachers such as Eckhart Tolle are now becoming accessible to a large mainstream audience through such popular cultural venues as the Oprah Winfrey show. This postmodern form of spirituality has also made inroads into the highest reaches of human knowledge in the way it has helped to harmonize the world's wisdom traditions with the discoveries of science. However, despite its successes, progressive spirituality remains largely counter-cultural. It has not, as yet, produced the great awakening—the momentous Shift—that it has held out as its most enticing promise. Integral spirituality grows out of progressive spirituality, yet it claims to be distinct—a new form of spirituality that can be distinguished from New Age perspectives. In this segment, Steve McIntosh will discuss the elements of integral spirituality that distinguish it from even the best of progressive spirituality. He will highlight the aspects of the integral approach that transcend the current state of progressive spirituality, while also including it within an inspiring new synthesis.

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.
