Hello Integral Philly!
We have the unique opportunity to attend a retreat with Andrew Cohen on the weekend of May 18-19. He will be doing an urban retreat in NYC. This means we can choose to stay in NYC or travel from Philly both days and still have the full experience of deep spiritually transformative immersion with one of the world's most powerful and innovative Integral spiritual teachers!
From my own personal experience in which one retreat with Andrew changed my life forever, I believe the pure positivity of his transmission is a rare treasure in this lifetime not to be missed.
A number of us will be traveling back and forth to save on cost so please let me know if you want to ride with us on this great adventure.
Here is the link and some details are below...
Living On Your Spiritual Edge - An Urban Retreat with Andrew Cohen
During the NYC Urban Retreat, you will be guided through one of the most relevant and leading-edge models for individual and collective spiritual development available today: Evolutionary Enlightenment.
As Andrew Cohen describes in his best-selling book, Evolutionary Enlightenment: A New Path to Spiritual Awakening, the typical messages of much of contemporary mysticism—“live in the moment” and “discover the power of now”—while still powerful, are no longer enough.
Instead, Andrew Cohen redefines spirituality for today’s world–a world characterized by exponential change and an ever-expanding appreciation for the processes of evolution. His teaching work is focused entirely on aligning yourself with what he calls “the evolutionary impulse.”
Andrew’s message is simple, yet profound: Life is evolution, and enlightenment is about waking up to this fundamentally creative impulse as your own deepest, most authentic self—so that you can play an active role in creating the future.
And over these two days, that is exactly what you will discover more deeply how to do.
Who is Andrew Cohen?
Since 1986, Andrew Cohen has been traveling the world giving public lectures and leading intensive retreats. Through his writings, teachings, and ongoing dialogues with leading philosophers, scientists, and mystics, he has become known as one of the defining voices of a new “evolutionary spirituality.”
With Evolutionary Enlightenment, Andrew Cohen has brought the timeless depth of enlightened wisdom into the twenty-first century and significantly redirected its purpose and promise–calling not for transcendence of worldly attachment, but for a deep and heroic responsibility for the evolution of the world.
"Andrew has the pulse of modern life at his fingertips. His diagnosis of the demands and distractions of our noisy, busy world shows the accuracy of a skilled diagnostician"—Deepak Chopra
"Andrew Cohen has arrived at an insight that is crucial for our historical situation. Enlightenment is not a movement out of the everyday world but is instead a profound entrance into deep participation int the evolution of the universe. Rarely have I encountered such simple, searing wisdom connecting religious ideas about enlightenment with the scientific understanding of an evolutionary cosmos."—Brian Swimme
