What You’ll Learn
Here’s what you’ll discover in this powerful 9-Week Course:
- Why our moment in history is so significant and what it demands of those of us who can recognize it
- Why evolution depends on you: the quantum shift in perspective that can realign your entire life
- The unique role of the human being in the evolutionary process
- Awakening to the unimaginable sense of meaning and purpose that comes from aligning your life with the “evolutionary impulse”
- The transformative power of awakening to our evolutionary interdependence—and why this single insight gives us access to change in ways we wouldn’t just change for ourselves
- How the evolutionary perspective resolves the tension so many of us feel between the impulse to transform ourselves and the desire to improve the world
- How to discover an unshakable inner compass to navigate the complexity of life by al
Enlightenment and Evolution:
From Being to Emergence
- Why “being in the now” is the least important part of spiritual life, and how to awaken to an experience of “authentic presence” that includes your desire to create the future
- Experience the dynamic liberation that emerges through wholehearted creative participation in the evolutionary process
- How to distinguish between healthy surrender to the evolutionary impulse and potentially destructive self-abandonment
- Discover the synergistic relationship between being and doing—and why both are essential for an authentic, integral enlightenment
- How to resolve the tension between the call to let go of all attachment and the need to honor your commitments and responsibilities in the world
- Learn to abide at the edge of the unknown in order to midwife the unmanifest creative potentials waiting to be born
Awakening the Will to Evolve:
Motivation, Intention, and the Choice to be Free
- Learn to identify the two primary competing “motivational centers” inside you, and how to make enlightened choices even when you don’t feel particularly enlightened
- Why self-fulfillment—or even self-liberation—is not a sufficient motivation to catalyze genuine awakening
- Why you can’t simply “choose to be enlightened”—and the choice you can make that’s even more important
- Discover the fundamental shift in orientation that can enable you to permanently overcome your resistance to change
- Awaken the “four spheres of enlightened motivation” that can propel you to new depths of spiritual awakening
- Dramatically accelerate your spiritual development by awakening the usually dormant power of “enlightened will”
Transcending the Obstacles on the Path:
Shadow, Ego, and the Primitive Self
- Discover your core ego strategies and develop precise evolutionary counter-strategies to disable them
- Why awareness of and intimate understanding of our ego is a critical foundation for all authentic spiritual work, so that you don’t get tripped up by your unconscious
- Learn how to harness your “enlightened will” to override the ego’s destructive tendencies
- How to maintain your functionality in the world as you allow the false boundaries of your ego self to fall away
- Sustaining a commitment to evolution—how to stay on the path no matter what challenges come your way
Evolutionary Spiritual Practice Part One:
Unleashing the Power of Meditation
- Discover the Ground of Being at the heart of the spiritual quest, and learn simple practices for anchoring your life in this primordial freedom each day
- Learn how to ground your meditation practice in an evolutionary context, and why this simple step will propel your meditation to new depths
- How to meditate deeply even if you have an active mind by learning how to disembed your awareness from the stream of thought.
- How to meet each moment of meditation–and life–with a “beginner’s mind” and discover the expansive freedom of not knowing.

Evolutionary Spiritual Practice Part Two:
Beyond the Meditation Cushion
- How to create a balanced spiritual life that fully engages both the transcendent and dynamic aspects of Awakened consciousness

- Learn how to harness your advanced introspective capacities to propel you to new heights of clarity and spiritual alignment
- Discover an active approach to transformation that enables you to defuse, disarm, and deconstruct the ego in the midst of engagement with everyday life
- Confront the human condition in yourself: awaken to the always liberating power of radical self-honesty
- A Commitment to Right Action: Why making a commitment to “do the right thing”—and acting on it—whether you feel like it or not is one of the most direct paths beyond ego
Becoming an Evolutionary Force in the World:
The Call to Enlightened Leadership and Co-Creativity
- Where to find the courage to lead in a world that shuns authority
- How to hold authentic power in a way that empowers everyone around you
- How to create evolutionary culture in any group with which you are involved
