Integral Christianity: The Spirit’s Call to Evolve

#ad
Paragon House #ad - Jesus pushed his own religion to newness by including the best of its past, and transcending the worst of its present. Jesus continues to be a prototype for all spiritual paths in their task of keeping up with the Spirit’s evolutionary impulse to welcome the next stage. This book presents a model of christianity that incorporates the insights of a Jesus-centered theology of biblical interpretation, integral philosophy, and over fifty years of pastoral experience in leading evolutionary change in the local church.

He calls us to do the same, whatever our religion is today. Smith says, “the oldest thing you can say about God is that God is always doing something new. The perspectives of integral theory and practice, articulated by Ken Wilber, help uncover the integral approach that Jesus advocated and demonstrated in the metaphors of his time – and that traditional Christianity has largely been unable to see.

Integral Christianity: The Spirit's Call to Evolve #ad - Smith incorporates elements of traditional, modern, New Thought, including progressive, and postmodern theological viewpoints, and emerging/emergent ones. However, he goes beyond all of them and moves to a Christianity that is devoted to following both the historical Jesus and the Risen Christ whose Spirit beckons to us from the future.

More Inclusive, More Comprehensive, More Complete - The Religion of Tomorrow: A Vision for the Future of the Great Traditions

#ad
Shambhala #ad - This, is a thrilling call for wholeness, Ecology, Spirituality, his most sweeping work since Sex, inclusiveness, and unity in the religions of tomorrow. A provocative examination of how the great religious traditions can remain relevant in modern times by incorporating scientific truths learned about human nature over the last century.

A single purpose lies at the heart of all the great religious traditions: awakening to the astonishing reality of the true nature of ourselves and the universe. At the same time, through centuries of cultural accretion and focus on myth and ritual as ends in themselves, this core insight has become obscured.

Taking buddhism as an example, wilber demonstrates how his comprehensive Integral Approach—which is already being applied to several world religions by some of their adherents—can avert a “cultural disaster of unparalleled proportions”: the utter neglect of the glorious upper reaches of human potential by the materialistic postmodern worldview.

More Inclusive, More Comprehensive, More Complete - The Religion of Tomorrow: A Vision for the Future of the Great Traditions #ad - . Here ken wilber provides a path for reenvisioning a religion of the future that acknowledges the evolution of humanity in every realm while remaining faithful to that original spiritual vision. For the traditions to attract modern men and women, emotions, about the mind and brain, Wilber asserts, they must incorporate the extraordinary number of scientific truths learned about human nature in just the past hundred years—for example, and the growth of consciousness—that the ancients were simply unaware of and thus were unable to include in their meditative systems.

Moreover, he shows how we can apply this approach to our own spiritual practice.

Integral Spirituality: A Startling New Role for Religion in the Modern and Postmodern World

#ad
Shambhala #ad - He shows how spirituality today combines the enlightenment of the East, with the enlightenment of the West, which excels at cultivating higher states of consciousness, which offers developmental and psychodynamic psychology.

#ad
Shambhala #ad - Prepare to encounter your mind in a radically new way as Ken Wilber introduces Integral Mindfulness, a meditative approach based on Integral Theory and Practice. This leading-edge technique combines, for the first time in history, the ancient paths of meditation and mindfulness—or Waking Up—with modern research into psychological development and human evolution—Growing Up—resulting in a complete and powerfully effective method of personal transformation.

Integral meditation focuses attention on the inner "maps" we use to navigate life—in relationships, in play, at work and study, in just about everything we do. Mindfulness is used to unearth these unconscious maps, then uproot them so that we can substitute happier and healthier perspectives. With experiential exercises, guided meditation instructions, and tools to identify the individual’s own greatest potential, this book points the way to realizing our Supreme Identity—and to finding the reason why each of us has come into being: to embody and express in the world our unique perspective of Spirit.

Trump and a Post-Truth World

#ad
Shambhala #ad - You suffocate, you suffer, and you get very, very mad. It is only when members of society’s leading edge can heal themselves that a new, Integral evolutionary force can emerge to move us beyond the social and political turmoil of our current time to offer genuine leadership toward greater wholeness. This leading edge is characterized by the desire to be as just and inclusive as possible, and to it we owe the thrust toward women’s rights, the environmental movement, the civil rights movement, and the concern for oppression in all its forms.

How did we get here? and how, with so much antagonism, and discord, cynicism, can we mend the ruptures in our societies?  In this provocative work, philosopher Ken Wilber applies his Integral approach to explain how we arrived where we are and why there is cause for hope. He lays much of the blame on a failure at the progressive, leading edge of society.

A provocative and balanced examination of our current social and political situation -- by a cutting-edge philosopher of our times. The world is in turmoil. This is all evolutionarily healthy; what is unhealthy is a creeping postmodernism that is elitist, “politically correct, ” insistent on an egalitarianism that is itself paradoxically hierarchical, and that looks down on “deplorables.

Trump and a Post-Truth World #ad - Combine this with the techno-economic demise of many traditional ways of making a living, and you get an explosive mixture. With the election of donald Trump—nationalist and extremist political forces threaten the progress made over many decades. Democracies are reeling in the face of nihilism and narcissism.
