There’s an event on at London’s EnlightenNext this sunday evening – a dialogue between EnlightenNext London’s Director, Chris Parish, and Integral exponent, Terry Patten – which I think will open the doorway to a broad and, pardon the pun, more ‘integral’ evolutionary effort. I’m very much excited to see what develops from it, Gary has also picked up on the news very quickly, already having emailed his other newsgroup about the event, and I’m sure both he and I are aware of how useful this conversation may be in accelerating the intellectual and theoretical unification of these two most heartfelt spiritual perspectives, which is something I have been thinking for a while now is the next crux decision or step forward in our global collective effort.

For my view, I agree with Chris, that a person is not likely to be one without being the other. In fact, for my part, I do not see them as separate things but one overall approach. Perhaps the distinction is that one, ‘integral’, is a framework, whereas evolutionary enlightenment is an active movement. That I see the importance and value of both is why I founded Whole Life Whole World specifically as an integral wisdom movement.
“Yes, I know the title says “versus”, but it’s not really like that. I’m looking forward to the dialogue I’m going to have with my good friend Terry Patten, since this subject is one of those ones which keeps popping up.” – Chris Parish
The event will be a live discussion at EnlightenNext London’s centre in Islington, North London, price per head £10.00. It is also possible to follow the dialogue from anywhere around the world via a webcast option.
We look forward to see what comes of this evening discussion with great anticipation.
Best wishes, and if you’re going live I may very well see you there…
