[Evolutionary Spirituality] embraces the wisdom of the great meditative traditions, but also reaches forward to unleash the profound spiritual potential inherent in our recently evolved capacities for self-awareness, introspection, self-authorship and relational intimacy. - Craig Hamilton, Integral Enlightenment.

Imagine coming together with others in the enlightened recognition that we are all ultimately one Self, suffused with the evolutionary purpose of the cosmos.- Andrew Cohen Evolutionary Enlightenment.

 

A Co-Created Guidebook and Interactive Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Spirituality, grounded in the Great Story, to explore our way into an evolutionary metareligious infusion that can inspire, heal and transform our diverse religious, spiritual and secular worlds.
This wiki is part of a larger evolutionary spirituality movement, which itself is part of a still larger movement and awakening at work in society.

"It is no longer an option for the sincere spiritual practitioner to withdraw into a lifetime of solitary contemplation and meditation. We live in a rapidly changing, conflicted world that calls for our wholehearted engagement. A new spiritual impulse is arising, compelling us to find our self-transcendence in our wholehearted commitment to the conscious evolution of the whole. This new spiritual impulse is calling for a new set of spiritual practices. We need a path that not only cultivates inner peace and clarity, but that transforms us at the deepest level of our individuality—the level of our motivations, our will, and our character—enabling us to be truly enlightened actors working together for an enlightened future."

 

It is only by transforming ourselves at the very deepest level of our being that we become able to act as agents of evolution. In order to do this sucessfully we need a practice which meets the challenges of the time we find ourselves in, and the support of the latest insights into what it means to be truly enlightened in the world of today. The time of lonely striving and heroic efforts on the part of individuals is giving way to that of collective effort toward coherent group insight and ability to act in the world co-operatively for the benefit of all.

"Integral Enlightenment founder Craig Hamilton is a pioneer in the emerging field of evolutionary spirituality. In his current work, Craig integrates decades of intensive spiritual practice with insights gleaned during his eight years as Senior Editor of the award-winning What Is Enlightenment? magazine. Through his writings and teachings, he is helping to articulate an authentic "evolutionary mysticism" and "integral enlightenment" which illuminates the vital relationship between individual transformation and collective evolution."

 

"Integral Enlightenment is an approach to spiritual practice that aspires to meet this need by leveraging our unique, 21st century human capacities to meet our 21st century individual and collective challenges. It embraces the wisdom of the great meditative traditions, but also reaches forward to unleash the profound spiritual potential inherent in our recently evolved capacities for self-awareness, introspection, self-authorship and relational intimacy."
