Andrew Cohen defines the term coherence from the perspective of evolutionary becoming, urging us to consider the true meaning and significance of enlightenment in the 21st century. Are we prepared to liberate ourselves not merely individually, but collectively – to come together to create the conditions in which radical coherence becomes not only possible, but the very axis upon which our life turns?
Andrew Cohen underlines the importance of developing the deep spiritual self-confidence we need to live at the very edge of the evolving cosmos – to realise our own latent potential to become heroic change-agents who will dare to stand for and bear witness to that which is higher.
Andrew shares his deepest insights on the true nature of spiritual practice from the perspective of being an authentic finder. Through sharing his own unique ecology of practice, Andrew reveals how, in the wake of higher state experiences, only an absolute commitment to a spiritual path makes any sense – and that commitment itself is the very fuel that makes the fire of spiritual liberation burn bright and strong.
Andrew Cohen challenges us to consider whether we can realise and attain authentic sovereignty while transcending the personal and cultural prison of the small self. How do we transcend the ego without losing or sacrificing sovereignty in any way? And is it possible to cultivate a kind of sovereignty that is not dominated by the irrational needs of the separate self-sense?
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.
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?
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?
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?
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.
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?
