slide1-98EnlightenNext Magazine (formerly What Is Enlightenment?)

EnlightenNext is an award-winning quarterly magazine, founded by Andrew Cohen and published by EnlightenNext, that chronicles the emergence of a new consciousness, culture, and philosophical framework for twenty-first-century society. Through in-depth interviews, investigative reporting, cultural critique, satire, and reviews, EnlightenNext reaches across the disciplines to bring together leading minds who are grappling with the greatest challenges of our time.

"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
