Over three bi-weekly sessions, Andrew Cohen offers a comprehensive overview of the Five Tenets – a set of principles that, individually and collectively, represent both the path and the goal of Evolutionary Enlightenment. Andrew will be your guide and mentor as you take an experiential journey through the Five Tenets, grounding you in a practice that truly is living enlightenment in every sense of what that means.
In this episode, there will be a reading from Andrew’s controversial new book When Shadow Meets the Bodhisattva. Andrew will talk candidly about his reasons for writing it, and about his vision, outlined in the later chapters, for a new post-postmodern spirituality of tomorrow. If you’ve read it and you’re inspired or intrigued by the subject matter, there will also be a rare and exciting opportunity to ask the author your questions. Don’t miss it!
In the next in our ongoing series of free talks, Andrew Cohen examines the many different dimensions of enlightenment through an integral lens. What are we fundamentally most preoccupied with, consciously or unconsciously? What does it mean to be truly awake in the 21st century? How can we upgrade our own sense of what enlightenment is and can be, as sophisticated and complex present-day human beings?
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.
In a spirit of deep enquiry, you are warmly invited to bring your most pressing, burning, urgent and challenging spiritual questions. Come and be thrilled at how this process opens a portal in consciousness to new and deeper perspectives on the human experience.
In this episode of our bi-weekly series, Andrew Cohen explores the delicate relationship between the Absolute and absolutism. The uncompromising nature and truth of this primordial principle cannot be tamed, so what does it mean to be open, receptive and vulnerable to the Absolute, in all its awe-inspiring depth and power, while recognising and resisting the temptation to believe that we and we alone have the only truth?
In the next in this series of talks, Andrew Cohen explores the two dimensions of experience that truly have the power to liberate, reminding us that ultimate freedom is never found in the maze of the mind, nor in our endless fascination with the frontal self. In the end, we must always be brought to our knees by a secret that is exploding beyond time, and that cannot be held or understood by the mind in any way.
New Beginnings: when we awaken to enlightened awareness in a way that is deep and profound we find ourselves grounded in the knowledge that from an Absolute vantage point, every moment is a new beginning, radiating with the presence of eternity.
In this episode of our bi-weekly series, Andrew Cohen looks at the delicate tension between pragmatic realism and absolute idealism. Can we cultivate a mature and rational idealism rooted in temporal reality, while never losing sight of the most elevated reference point – the unmanifest perfection that reveals itself in higher state experiences – as our “true north”?
Andrew Cohen invites us to explore our relationship to time with clear eyes and open hearts, asking us to consider what an evolutionarily awakened relationship to the past, present and future would actually look like. He highlights the importance of cultivating a conscious relationship to the significance of time, timelessness, and history – and points to the possibility of a future that embraces what has brought us to this moment while remaining radically unbound and free.
