“Evolutionary spirituality” is quite fashionable nowadays in the Bay area, and so is the idea of integral consciousness. But few people actually know the roots of these concepts in the writings of Hegel, Nietzsche, Henri Bergson, Teilhard de Chardin, Jean Gebser and especially Sri Aurobindo, and Haridas Chaudhuri, co-founder and the first president of CIIS. Weaving through these personalities and the disciplines of evolutionary philosophy, transpersonal psychology and cultural anthropology, this will be a talk and open dialogue about evolution in consciousness and culture.
