EnlightenNext New York

EnlightenNext is not just a global organization …it’s a STATE of consciousness.

Our New York center in mid-town Manhattan is a vortex of engagement and transformation in the bustling heart of New York City.

In the midst of cutting-edge art, culture, media, business, and finance, the center offers both a retreat from the hectic pace of this international city as well as a synergistic hub committed to exploring and embodying the explosive, revolutionary potentials of Andrew Cohen’s teachings of Evolutionary Enlightenment.

Our mission: to catalyze a revolution in consciousness and culture.

"Traditionally, enlightenment has been defined as a profound awakening to the Ground of Being - an awakening in which the seeker finds liberation through transcending the world of time and space.

"But in the new enlightenment, which is redefined in an evolutionary context, the discovery of this primordial ground is not an end in itself. It becomes the essential foundation from which the individual is freed to participate wholeheartedly in the evolutionary process.

"What arises out of that ground is an impulse to evolve, which I call the Authentic Self, and the goal of Evolutionary Enlightenment is to liberate this creative principle in human consciousness so that it can transform us and the world around us."

- Andrew Cohen
