"Andrew Cohen is a truly remarkable spiritual teacher on the cutting edge of evolutionary thinking and action."
Michael Dowd, author of "Thank God for Evolution"
"If the fourteen-billion-year cosmic experiment that resulted in our lives is not to end in the next few centuries, it will require brave and brilliant steps in our spiritual evolution. With instruction at once tough and tender, Andrew Cohen gives us the inspiration and the means to accomplish the greatest of all endeavors for the human spirit. This is a spiritual masterpiece."
-Jean Houston, PhD, author of "A Mythic Life"
"Andrew Cohen is the most precise teacher of the essence of spiritual conscious evolution and its social contribution."
Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of "Conscious Evolution"
"In Evolutionary Enlightenment, Andrew Cohen has given us a compellingly new, important, even profound work on the nature of spiritual enlightenment in today's world. More than an intellectual discussion, this is a book of practice, of actually how to realize this new Evolutionary Enlightenment. It is truly one of the most significant books on spirituality written in the postmodern world."
-Ken Wilber, author of "The Integral Vision"
"I have admired Andrew Cohen for many years. He is a pioneer in the field of consciousness. Andrew has brought together ancient wisdom traditions, modern cosmology, and a knowledge of evolution to give us a contemporary understanding of the nature of enlightenment. I think he is one of the most important teachers of our time."
-Deepak Chopra, author of "The Soul of Leadership"
From the Inside Flap
THE NEW SPIRITUALITY IS ALL ABOUT EVOLUTION
In Evolutionary Enlightenment: A New Path to Spiritual Awakening, Cohen redefines spirituality for our contemporary world* a world characterized by exponential change and an ever-expanding appreciation for the processes of evolution. Based on 25 years of groundbreaking work as a spiritual teacher and the editor-in-chief of the award-winning EnlightenNext magazine, Cohen has synthesized an original path, practice, and philosophy focused entirely on aligning yourself with what he calls * the evolutionary impulse.*
His 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.
EMBRACING CHANGE AS YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Change is a constant in today* 's world. Technology is accelerating, globalization is m

Cohen's words have called me to rethink: Our human predicament is delicate in this 21st Century, it is the cause of so much societal and planetary anxst. Yet, he shows us how great is our human potential! At this point in our evolution are we willing to allow our dormant Souls to awaken and to participate in life with renewed maturity and purpose? This book shows us how. (Hardback or Kindle)
I share it with you because, it is important... :)
About 12 years ago I got very sick. My heart stopped, and I... died. (Yes, I died, even if the doctors say it was only a near death experience :).
Finally, after 25 years of meditation practice, I experienced "the real thing"...
At first I didn't want to help. I was OK! But then, I sew my kids, and I understood that heaven can wait.
I was lucky! A choice to come back to life was still an option.
It was a start of a new life, and quit a cool one. Knowing what "death" is, gave me the ability to live without fear. It is a big thing! Still, I did not have an answer to the biggest question ever; "What is the point of it all, and what life is all about?"
It took another 7 years till things started to clear up for me.
One day, I have heard that an American spiritual teacher is coming to town. The moment Andrew Cohen entered the room; I felt a very powerful connection to that very same part in him, that is the same part I got to know when I was experiencing death. It was the spirit recognized itself in Andrew. It was a spontaneous, and immediate feeling, of great love and oneness.
Andrew introduced the audience to the teaching of Evolutionary Enlightenment.
A month later I went to a retreat with Andrew Cohen to learn Evolutionary Enlightenment. I can't say I understood it all immediately, but I did understand finally what is The Purpose of Life...
Now, don't ask me to tell you what is the purpose of life. Ask Andrew Cohen.
His new book "Evolutionary Enlightenment" will give you the tools to choose life full of joy, ecstasy and purpose!
Most would agree that, given today's rampant materialism and its negative social and environmental fall-out, humanity's stage of maturity hasn't progressed beyond adolescence; that is, we still haven't yet taken responsibility. And perhaps that's one reason both traditional religion and secular materialism retain such strong appeal: because both of them leave us in a position of adolescent dependency or irresponsibility; whether it be the spiritual dependency of praying to a God "up there" to solve our problems for us, or be it our secular faith in political leaders to somehow get us out of a deepening global crisis they haven't the first clue how to solve. What stands in our way, as Cohen points out with such brilliant clarity, is ourselves, our fear, and our unwillingness to take proper responsibility. As Bernard Shaw also recognised: "Freedom means taking responsibility. That is why most men dread it.Read more ›
I am also currently reading the Experiential Guide to the Celestine Prophecy and was amazed at how the two dovetail (I#m getting less amazed!)
This is not one of those easy-read 'dodgy but interesting' type spiritual books, it is one with which you need to grapple. I usually read far too quickly but I have had regular stops to digest this. I thoroughly recommend it to anybody who is wondering where to go with their search.
Everyone will come to this book at the right time for them, so if you are reading this review I would urge you to buy!
