Summer Retreat: Tuscany, Italy, (August 10-25)
Overlooking the birthplace of the Renaissance in Florence, Italy, discover a new, rational approach to spiritual awakening—and a fresh perspective on how to create change in yourself and in the world.
Change is often challenging—whether you’re aspiring to change yourself, the world, or both. But according to spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen, founder of EnlightenNext and best-selling author of Evolutionary Enlightenment: A New Path to Spiritual Awakening, there is a source of deep inspiration that can carry you beyond the personal and cultural obstacles that arise when you decide to engage with the inevitably complex process of change.
In fact, Andrew’s contemporary spiritual path, known as Evolutionary Enlightenment, is designed to empower you not only to embrace the process of change as your own spiritual practice, but to actively play your own small but significant role in shaping the future.
And during this year's Summer Being & Becoming Retreat, the 4th annual retreat of it's kind you will have a full fourteen days to immerse yourself in the experience, principles, and vision of Evolutionary Enlightenment—a spiritual teaching uniquely equipped to meet the challenges of life in the twenty-first century.
From the depths of meditation to the heights of shared philosophical and spiritual inquiry, you’ll discover the deeper dynamics of what it means to transform not only yourself, but the relationships and values you share with others.
As the highlight of only three opportunities of its kind this year, the Summer 2012 Being & Becoming Retreat is a rare opportunity to benefit from Andrew’s twenty-five years of experience at the leading edge of individual and cultural transformation.
The Summer 2012 Being & Becoming Retreat will give you the chance to spend long periods of time in meditation, contemplation, and active discussion with other like-minded individuals from across the globe. Throughout the retreat, you will be able to:
Andrew, along with the team at EnlightenNext, have designed this two week-long retreat to give you an experiential understanding of the deeper dynamics of individual and cultural transformation at our unique time in history.
Since 1986, Andrew 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.”
As a result, a growing network of people interested in higher human development—“Evolutionaries”—have begun to lay the foundations for what some consider a new cultural paradigm.
