In times of crisis like these, perhaps Love has never been more important than it is today. It’s for this reason that I’m delighted and honored to share with you that I will be participating in an extraordinary teleseminar series on The Future of Love which started already on April 17th.
During this 25-week series, we’ll engage and explore the biggest topic relevant to all human beings on the planet– Love!
Join me and over 20 of the world’s leading visionaries, spiritual teachers, thinkers and leaders dedicated to unfolding a new spirituality–including Ken Wilber, Deepak Chopra, Jean Houston, Warren Farrell, Traleg Rinpoche, John Gray, Lama Surya Das, Sally Kempton, Marilyn Schlitz, Brother David Steindl-Rast, Gabriel Cousens, Cynthia Bourgeault, Tami Simon, Robert Kegan, Sofia Diaz, Saul Williams, Eddie Kowalczyk, Dr. Marc Gafni, Diane Musho Hamilton, and others for this unprecedented conversation.
All of these calls are free, which is cool.  You can participate live, or listen to the recordings later at any time, from anywhere in the world.

These calls will address some of the most important questions facing us today, such as:

  • What is Love?
  • How do we find it, nurture and sustain it?
  • Does Love mean the same thing today that it did a thousand years ago when so many of the great religious traditions developed their views about Love?
  • How can we help Love evolve through our own development and transformation?
  • What are the structural patterns in the evolution of Love?
  • How does our conscious participation change the evolution of Love?
  • What are the evolutionary Integral skills of Love and relationship that have the power to deepen our realization and to liberate our true and unique self?
  • What new gifts for the world can emerge from this evolution?

I just got back a few days ago from what feels like the most incredible week of my life.  I was attending and speaking at the Integral Spiritual Experience conference in Asilomar near Monterey, California.

Wow, wow, and wow.

The conference was attended by over five hundred people from 33 different countries.  Unlike many conferences of its kind, it followed an evolutionary path.  It traced the development from personal story: the circumstances of our birth and conditioning, to the development of personality, or what the organizers called “false self.”  From there the conference moved into awakening: the  shift from personality based living to the realization of our true nature as limitless, unborn, undying and the source of everything.  (Guess who facilitated that part?!)  And from there we moved into uncharted territories: what Ken Wilber describes as an evolutionary emergence.  We explored how the more we rest in true self, in limitless consciousness, and subjectively experience emptiness, the more other people experience the flow of a unique gift.

This is the paradox. By resting in oneness we deepen our uniqueness, and in the cultivation of unique gifts we deepen oneness.

Jesus cell phoneIt’s been about eighteen years since my teacher H.W.L. Poonja asked me to teach awakening in the West.  At the beginning, when I first returned to Seattle in 1992, very few people would have a direct experience of being spaciousness, of being presence.  At that time, most people were primarily identified with being “seekers.”  They would project “enlightenment” onto a teacher or onto their own future, but it wasn’t accepted as part of their own now.  During the last eighteen years things have changed dramatically.  Not only in my experience, but others who spread awakening are reporting the same thing.  I’ve heard from Eckhart Tolle, Michael Beckwith, Jean Houston, Ram Dass and hundreds of other teachers that we are together witnessing an epidemic of awakening all over the planet.  It’s becoming easier and easier to relax back into your natural state and to know yourself to be limitless, the source of everything you experience.
