Creating a Vehicle for Continuous Transformation

Creating a Vehicle for Continuous Transformation: Awakening Consciousness and Engaging Culture

Our goal with the EnlightenNext Discovery Cycle is to create an actual manifestation of what enlightenment and spiritual transformation mean and look like today, in the twenty-first century. We’re striving to demonstrate how the explosive realization that consciousness and culture are one-that our interiors affect the exterior, and vice versa-really does have the power to change our world for the better.

The EnlightenNext Discovery Cycle is organized around two major annual events: the Being and Becoming Retreat and The Conference for Evolutionaries. And while both will be rich and rewarding gatherings in themselves, they are also much more than that: two parts of one integral whole, two distinct poles of a much bigger project to develop and enact new human possibilities.

In essence, the EnlightenNext Discovery Cycle is a far-reaching, inclusive opportunity for anyone who is interested in changing the world to deeply align with, and ongoingly contribute to, humanity’s larger evolutionary journey.

It’s a means for all of us to make sense out of life in the deepest way possible, together…

…and to show that human beings really can relate to each other in a dramatically different way. If that sounds exciting to you, then keep reading to find out how you can participate.


"In evolutionary spirituality, we are more interested in the future than we are in the present moment. Why? Because the present moment has already happened, so there is not much that we can do about it. We've already arrived there. But the future, which always exists in the next moment, is something we can actually impact. The future is something that we can actually get involved in creating and take responsibility for in the most exciting way possible. When we begin to care about evolution, we feel a passion for the future that is all-consuming."
