Evolutionary Spirituality

Evolutionary Spirituality

Michael Parfitt

This series of conversations between Marc Gafni and Andrew Cohen celebrates the creative and dynamic evolutionary tension between two diverse but intersecting perspectives. The aim is to catalyse awakening to higher states and stages of consciousness, giving rise to liberating insights and life-affirming perspectives in a unique tapestry of coherence and meaning – an inspiring example of emergent spirituality in action.

Authentic Relating

Authentic Relating

Michael Parfitt

Andrew Cohen invites us to discover a state of awareness which opens up new and unimagined potentials for human relatedness. When we can share the totality of the human experience from this transpersonal perspective, we become immersed in a different kind of intimacy that embraces a vast cosmic context, while simultaneously transcending and including the personal dimension.

Gender, Sexuality and the True Self

Gender, Sexuality and the True Self

Michael Parfitt

What would it mean to be a woman or man, of whatever orientation or sexual preference, who is completely free from any form of conscious or unconscious neurotic identification with sexuality or gender? In a culture that seems ever more in love with its own reflection, how can we stand courageously for authentic freedom, while transcending and including all superficial differences or distinctions?

Authentic Relating

Countercultural Spirituality

Michael Parfitt

Andrew Cohen invites us to break through our perceived limits, to take a leap beyond the conditioned mind and into the fathomless depths of the absolute. Can we authentically respond to the deepest truth about the nature of reality? Do we have the courage to go all the way?

Seeking Perfection

The Promises and Perils of Seeking Perfection

Michael Parfitt

Andrew Cohen explores the promise and perils of seeking perfection, and asks us to interrogate these delicate questions from the highest possible perspective: when we have tasted perfection in higher state experiences, what does it mean for our fragmented and ever-imperfect world? How do we embrace the apparent contradiction of these two very different realities? And can we minimise the perils and maximise the promise of these higher states?

Free Will

Free Will, Destiny and Awakened Consciousness

Michael Parfitt

Andrew Cohen explores the intersection of free will, destiny and awakened consciousness through the lens of Evolutionary Enlightenment. He argues that while much of our experience is indeed governed by deep forces of conditioning – and simultaneously driven by positive and negative karmic momentum – we do nevertheless have a small, but all-important, measure of free will that can be dramatically enhanced by spiritual awakening.

Radical and Real

Radical and Real

Michael Parfitt

In this provocative talk, Andrew Cohen draws on more than three decades of experience as a teacher to contemplate the unreasonable nature of spirit. In a cultural context which seems less ready than ever to embrace authentic spirituality, how can we create the appropriate “set and setting” for an uncompromising and radical journey to self-transcendence?
