In Evolutionary Enlightenment we are presented with an authentic spiritual innovation: a new philosophy, path, and practice of spiritual enlightenment for the twenty-first century, forged through more than two decades of transformative spiritual work with men and women around the world and in serious conversation with leading luminaries from almost every religious and spiritual tradition, both ancient and modern. Andrew Cohen, founder and editor-in-chief of the award-winning quarterly magazine EnlightenNext, has re-envisioned spiritual enlightenment in a completely new context. This context is, as he writes, nothing less than "the fourteen-billion-year epic of our cosmic evolution-a vast perspective that enhances and enlarges to almost infinite proportions our sense of the significance of what it means to be human."Evolutionary Enlightenment takes readers on an experiential journey into this new perspective, path, and practice. Taken from direct transcriptions of Cohen's talks and retreats, and meticulously edited by Cohen himself, the chapters in this book combine the powerful transmission of a mystic with the clarity and precision of an original and creative thinker.
