Deeper than Darwin: The Further Evolution of Consciousness. Why the seemingly esoteric subject of the evolution of consciousness actually couldn’t be more relevant for our lives
We’re pleased to announce the second in our ongoing series of Evolutionary Worldview dialogues — conversations that bring together original thinkers visionaries and cultural innovators – David Lorimer and Chris Parish at the EnlightenNext UK Centre, Thursday, 10 November, 7:30pm.
Lorimer and Parish will explore the implications of Charles Darwin’s great discovery. With his earth-shattering On the Origin of Species, Darwin launched, arguably, the beginning of the end of the great mythic religions and the elevation of science as the primary source of truth for Western civilization.
The implications and ramifications of his momentous discovery have continued to reverberate through the passage of time. The evident truth and fact of evolution inspired gifted 20th century visionaries, such as Teilhard de Chardin and Sri Aurobindo, as well as many others before and since, to add their own interpretation and insights to the understanding of evolution. They observed, inferred and experienced that there was far more to the concept than simply natural and biological evolution. Entering into the interior dimensions of evolution, they began to map out the territory of consciousness itself.
It is precisely into this territory that the innovative writer and educator David Lorimer and EnlightenNext’s Chris Parish, a dedicated explorer of consciousness, will take us, uncovering wisdom, profound truths and new perspectives on the implications of the evolution of consciousness, making a case for how valuable and meaningful these ideas are for the lives we lead today.
